Wore an XS shirt yesterday. And it wasn't snug :-)

This morning, my size 12 formal pants fell off my hips and I could remove it without unzipping. I could fit into Size 10. The size 10 pants were sleeping for about 3 years and time for them to wake up. I did not realize my progress until today.

My NSV will be to just make it through the week without gorging myself and having gotten through my planned workout days. Work has been really hectic and the transition from summer to autumn is in the air- it all makes me quite blue. I just want to lie on the sofa with a bag of chips.

NSV of this week:

1. Went to the gym again on Monday. I have been avoiding going especially on week days, because I was afraid of people asking where I had been. I know it is stupid... I enjoyed it so much and am really wondering why I ever stopped going.

2. Went running yesterday, even though it was 10°C outside and raining. This is the kind of whether we you would usually find me with comfy cloths and chocolate in front of the TV.

3. My mum called and kept on talking about how much weight I have lost and how she can really see it and that she is proud of me.

I have not had ice cream all summer-I know I can enjoy it sensibly but I liked knowing I can go without and not feel deprived. It was more of a pattern (to go to my fav spot) than a "treat".

I got back to logging and exercising after a 3 month break and am feeling better after just a few days back at it!

I'm on vacation this week and I've done really well with food choices when I don't know where we're going to eat until we get there! Feels great to make good choices!

i take it youre supposed to have them daily or weekly then? what if you dont?


You don´t have them weekly! Or at least not a big thing every week... But I like the idea of being on a look out for NSV´s. I tend to get frustrated with my self for not exercising or not eating healthy. But getting angry at my self does not help me much. It starts the thought pattern of "I told you you can not do this. You should have never started. You always fail. You will never make it." I rather like to concentrate (and collect) those moments that give me an extra push.

It´s surely not every day, maybe not even every week, but the more I look for it the better I feel.

Yesterday my Director brought cake to the office and I didn't have one slice. Cake is my biggest weakness, so being able to deflect its charms made me feel like Superwoman!!!

I almost cut down my workout tonight... But I pushed through and did the whole thing. I feel fantastic!


That's awesome! This was mine too! I am getting over a sinus infection that is trying to make its way into my chest. I still have a little chest congestion, but I pushed through it and did my workout anyway.

At my blood pressure check at the doctor's yesterday, both values had gone down 9 points so I'm no longer "borderline", I'm in the healthy range.

A huge week for me as far as NSV's:

1) Set new personal bests in the gym for amount of weight lifted or tied personal bests

2) Visited a friend and his family on Sunday evening for dinner and they asked what I was doing (eating, exercise) because I was looking really fit

3) During a class for my work a bodybuilder who I hadn't seen in over a year said I was looking bigger (in a good way!)

I've had two fabulous ones. First of all, I was mistaken for a hussy. ;-) The landlord that owns the house across the way from me is only there a few times a year (she rents to students). She saw me and thought that my husband was running around with some younger thinner girl. She saw my truck in the driveway, she assumed the worst. She was ready to curse me out, til she walked up and realized it was ME!!! hahahaha. ;-)

Second one, I mowed my back yard in shorts and a sports bra. It's been about 14 years since I've been brave enough to wear something that revealing somewhere publicly visible. I've dropped 118 lbs in 3 years..my body isn't rock hard by any stretch, but I'm pushing hard, and that includes pushing my comfort levels to a spot of normalcy (for me). I felt incredibly empowered. (and worried that the kids next door were thinking that their neighbor was half nekkid...see, issues to overcome..LOL)

Chris Powell from Extreme Makeover Weight loss Edition commented me on facebook! I love him - him / that show has been a huge inspiration to me in the past 3 months, so this meant A LOT to me last night! <3

I also had to wear a belt to work the other day with my jeans because they wouldnt have stayed up. I have lost 12 1/2 inches in the past 87 days and dropped 15 lbs.

Two for me this week:

Normally I clip my iPod onto the waistband of my running skort... On Monday evening when I went running I couldn't because it was making my skort slide down and I didn't want to expose myself to all of the kids at the park!

And, as autumn is starting to roll into New England, I was pulling out my weather-appropriate work clothes and nothing fit! No even a belt would help--it all looked ridiculous! So on Tuesday evening I had to go to the store to buy some new clothes for the new me!

I found an old t-shirt I use to wear as a kid ( a cute shirt that says "It's a cat's life"). It was pretty baggy for me, and it made me happy because when I took it off, it was a CHILD'S LARGE.
