Finally realized what NSV stands for!!

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

It only took me 4 months but after seeing NSV several times on SparkPeople I finally realized it means Non Scale Victory. (Please correct me if I'm wrong!) So I took some time to consider this, after feeling down about only losing 30 pounds over the last 4 months. And I have realized the absolute biggest difference between last summer and this summer is that I am Playing with my kids. Last year I would take them outside and sit in a chair, reading a book and not get up unless absolutely necessary. This year I have been swimming with thm several times, I play catch with my oldest daughter a few times a week, we play frisbee, kickball and have races! We are having a great summer and the real NSV is seeing the smiling faces on my babies! I have so much more weight to lose but I am going to celebrate havin fun with my kids for now!!

    This blog is something similar to my blog "Massive," making all the little stuff count because it is the little stuff that makes the bigger changes to our lives.

    What you describe here is spot on although 30 pounds is a fantastic loss too - please do not dismiss it and how important it is too.

    To bring home the enormity of the thirty pound weight loss have a go at this.

    Try picking something up of approximately this weight and carry it around with you for a little while. After a little while has passed put it down and leave it.

    Isn't it lovely to be able to put that weight down and leave it behind.

    Well guess what - - - - YOU ALREADY HAVE DONE JUST THAT.

    It's called loosing 30lbs.

    Once again - well done - fantastic going.

    30 pounds in 4 months is amazing!!! That is an average of 7.5 pounds a month..or 1.8 pounds a week! Seriously that is phenomenal! Also that NSV you mentioned is even more amazing! Your kids are probably thrilled to have their mom interacting more with them..congrats on your awesome SV and NSV :))
