I’ve reached the time in my weight loss journey where stalls start to happen. It’s the first but certainly won’t be the last. It’s times like these when it’s important to find NSVs or Non-Scale Victories that encourage and motivate you. NSVs are a great way to really evaluate the impact of your efforts. So, I’ll start with my first and list a few smaller ones. 

The first HUGE NSV is the dress I’m wearing to work today. I haven’t been able to wear it in TEN YEARS. 10 years!!! I carried it from place to place hoping to one day lose enough weight to fit in it. Not only have I not been able to wear it in 10 years, but it is a REGULAR SIZE FROM A REGULAR STORE! Ok, as regular as XL can be. But, without further ado, my Merona XL wrap dress from Target!



I look at the difference between my lumpy former self from last summer and my much more smooth self from today, and I can truly count it as a victory!

A few other NSVs I experienced the past week or so:

  • My hubby noticed he could wrap his arms all the way around me (felt amazing!)
  • Effortlessly walked 5 miles at Epcot’s Food & Wine Festival
  • My rings completely flew off my hand while getting something out of the fridge
  • I am throwing too-big clothes in my ThredUp bag like crazy
  • My size 22 fat jeans that I’m keeping for my after picture are WAY too big to even try to wear
  • I’m hovering between a size 16 and 18
  • I’m excited to fit in an airplane seat for my 10 year anniversary trip next month 🙂
