Yesterday I celebrated an accidental "Non Scale Victory" (NSV) which happened to me out of the blue. I love it when that happens!
My son was looking for a special tool to adjust his bike seat and somehow or another he ended up knocking over a basket I had on my mantle. (I am queen of "just hide stuff in baskets"). Anyway, when he knocked it over, all kinds of things scattered on the floor, including a ring that my mother gave me several years ago. I loved this ring! I was also very sad when the ring no longer fit on my finger because I had gained so much weight. :-(
So I picked it up and just kind of looked at it for a while, debating on whether I wanted to try to wear it or not. There's very little as deflating as trying something on - anything - thinking it might fit, only to find out it doesn't. Still, I really loved this ring and thought I'd give it a try. It's a combination of white gold and regular gold which is great so it matches anything. And..........................it fit!
I haven't dared to mention my actual weight or actual size yet (I will...when I'm at least halfway to my goal I'll tell all!) but in another "non scale victory" I will tell you I tried on clothes at The Avenue (love that store) the other day that are a full TWO sizes smaller and I could get them on without any trouble. They felt a bit snug so I'm not buying any YET...but in a couple of weeks I will! WOOHOO!!!
These non scale victories are pretty important. It's really not all about some number on a scale. It really is about living every day making my next right small daily choices and LIVING LIFE while I do it, and then enjoying the positive consequences of those choices. w00t!
