    @Gyrl_on_A_Journey Your rock and are an inspiration!

    Awww thanks! Hope I can motivate someone! :-) I am definitely proud of myself. I couldn't have done it without God guiding me.

    Week 2
    Pw 151
    Cw 151

    No weight loss this week, but I weigh myself daily and my range this week was pretty consistently two pounds less than last week! (150-152 vs 152-154). Small victory, but still one for me. Also, I’ve been running each day and I feel really good. Hoping for at least a pound loss next week! Happy Friday :)

    To me it's a non scale victory. In high school I ran track, but once I started gaining weight I could no longer run the way or use to and I no longer enjoyed it. The other day I was out for a walk and a dog started chasing me. Before I knew it I just took off. It took me a second for me to realize I was running and I wasn't out of breath. I was able to run again or jog I should say. I was so excited. But I consider this my victory for the week!!!! Just to give you guys insight on my weight, here I go! Been on my weight loss journey for 3 years

    @Gyrl_on_A_Journey What a wonderful NSV! You ran, you got away from the dog, and you're getting to relive those feelings of HS track. It's like a taste of youth again, isn't it? So glad for you that you had that experience! Have you tried jogging again since?

    Non-Scale Victory Roundup

    We're over halfway through Week 2. Do you have any non-scale victories to share?

    Let's hear about your successes!

    I took a goofy selfie of myself to send to the boyfriend... between me working full time and going to school full time... and him working 2 full time jobs, i joke that we are in the closest long distance relationship ever (he only lives 20 minutes away).... AND I actually really liked how I looked!

    @WishfulThinning18 Good for you! It's a huge victory to feel good for yourself about how you look. I'm so glad for you!

    @Runnerjess119 Way to go on the lower weekly range! It's good to have a feeling for yourself of what is really maintenance for the week versus what is maybe a little higher day because of something that happened the day before. Perspective is important, right?

    Way to go on running and feeling good! A great NSV!

    My NSV: Optimism!

    When I started losing weight last April, I was motivated by fear. I was 49% body fat (according to an inbody scale) and I really felt for the first time how devastating the possibility of metabolic-related illness could be. I realized I'd been lucky not to have any problems so far.

    Today I had an inbody measurement again, and I'm about 31% body fat. There's still work to be done, but now I feel optimistic about it. I've managed to lose weight without it feeling impossible. I was motivated by fear for several months, and then eventually, I started being motivated by the good feeling of progress, and now I feel optimistic that I can continue making positive changes, maintaining and even continuing my weight loss.

    NSV I'm down another cm in my waist! The scales haven't really budged since October, no matter what I do. I'm not sure if still breastfeeding has something to do with it. But my waist is getting smaller, which is the main thing I want to shift.

    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yes.
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yes.

    NSV.....I started losing weight for my health. After 50# I was able to cut my BP med to half a pill and cholesterol med to half a pill. I lowered my cholesterol by 100 points. I am stronger, feel great....now to lose that last 20#.

    @LesIckaBod am I not in this month, I didn’t see my name on the spreadsheet, no big deal, I can wait until next month. Thanks!

    @cjscoey Hmm, looks like you weren't on the December spreadsheet by the end, so that's probably why you didn't roll over onto the Jan spreadsheet. I think we can get you added back, but do you have a starting weight and preferred weigh-in day?

    I didn't finish December and made a post stating that and requested to be added to Jan, I was having work issues. My starting weight was 173 and I would like Fridays for weigh ins, Thanks!

    @cjscoey My apologies. I'll update the moderator to get you added back!

    Thank you so much!!

    It's close to my TOM so I'm not going to sweat this, plus I've hit the gym pretty hard this week so that may be part as well. Next week will be better!
