A wonderful NVS Climb

Thursday, July 18, 2013

I've been thinking for a while now that maybe I should start posting a blog once in a while. I know I enjoy reading other member's blogs . . . and get a good feeling when I can offer encouragement or advice to them. Isn't it selfish not to reciprocate? And I've heard it can be therapeutic, too.

Perhaps it's just fear that what I write won't be interesting enough for someone to want to read & comment on. Well, the best way to get over your fears are to just jump in, right?!
So here's goes:

I had a wonderful NSV (Non Scale Victory) today. I had to drop by my Dr office today (to pick up lab paperwork) and her office is upstairs (a hefty climb, I might add). Four months ago, I was huffing & puffing when I got to the top of those stairs, but today--not even a little out of breath!!! Such a wonderful feeling . . . I'm all smiles at the moment!

My take from this morning's "climb:" I'm healthier . . . watching what I eat, exercising more (which has resulted in a 12 lb loss) has paid off in better health! And isn't that the ultimate goal!!!

Here's hoping the same for all my SP friends!!! emoticon

    I used to feel the same way, what do I have to say that anyone would want to read? So then I just started writing and using it more as a journal, and I'm glad I did because I can look back and see how far I've come! And to my surprise lots of people read, and commented and gave helpful advice and encouragement and now I'm a big blogger!!

    So WTG (way to go!) on stepping out on that limb and blogging!!

    Doing those stairs without getting out of breath is amazing!! That is a huge accomplishment and you are right, health is the whole point in all of this!!

    Well, I can imagine wanting to write about that NSV. It must feel so good.

    As for blogs being boring, I'm sure I bore people with my blog, so they are certainly allowed to bore me with theirs. I think individual blog posts can be boring, but they build up over time and readers then get a better sense of who the writer is. Sort of like watching a popular TV series for the first time. Usually it isn't as interesting as when you know the back stories of the characters, then the little boring things fit into a bigger picture and it all becomes more interesting.

    Looking forward to more of your posts.
