NSV Made Me Realize I Should be Measuring Instead of Weighing
Sunday, September 17, 2017
Yesterday I received an effusive NSV, a compliment that raved on about my looking slim. Actually slim. I'm convinced that these (I had one about a month ago that was similar) have a lot to do with the illusion that clothing creates. I definitely look better in some outfits than others as they have a slenderizing effect.
Which made me remember what several SP friends have said throughout my years on this site; that they don't weigh themselves, they go by how their clothes feel. I really should measure because the scale is very slow even though I know I'm making progress. In the past 1.5 months, since I started tracking, I'm down seven pounds. Those three pounds I reported were a scale mistake last week. I had a feeling it was at the time.
Okay, I got my exercise bike assembled and I like it a lot. Today my mini trampoline arrives and that is a bit iffy. I shopped around with not a big budget for these exercise things, but made the best possible choice for my purposes. It will require assembly as well, but not as complicated as the bike.
Temperatures are cooling and delightful. More energy has returned as heat just drains me so much. My relative is having a tougher recovery than anticipated. He thought he was going to just zippety do dah right into normal activity. It has taken a lot out of him and he needs to be gentle with his healing body.
Finishing up my groceries for the next day or so before I start on the juicing experiment. Will keep you posted. I like that I won't have to think about what to make for meals. I'm lazy at times. (smiling)
Wishing all a happy, healthy day.
