    This is odd lol but I donate plasma frequently and my most recent NSV was fitting in a normal adult sized blood pressure cuff :smiley:

    Congratulations! Your profile pic is great, you are doing amazing. Keep up the good work.

    Thank you so much! You too! :)

    I'm not sure about the whys, but my eyesight seems to be getting better. Things are not as "blurry" as they used to be and I don't seem to need my glasses as much. Whatever the reason, I'm so glad and count this as a NSV for sure!

    There's fat in your eyeball, socket, around the muscles that control your focus. It's a legitimate side effect of weight loss that it changes your eyesight. Make sure you get yours looked at so you don't make your eyes worse by using the wrong prescription long term.

    Close enough to being correct in explanation to be definitely be correct in conclusion. Heed the advice and get reexamined if you (anyone reading) ever notice vision changes with weight loss.

    Got my kayak up on top of my van, then down and up again for my first solo kayak trip at a local lake. It was a lovely, peaceful morning—I remember how much fun I love being out early on the water!

    So inspiring! I'm going to have to get my guide boat out! Thanks!

    I ran week 4 of C25K successfully. It's the one with 3 and 5 minute runs. My breathing was good. And I liked every second of it. B)B)

    That's a tough week!! Great job!!

    That's incredibly interesting... I wore reading glasses when I was younger. Then didn't. Now I do again. I put it down to being over 50... maybe it's down to be (quite a bit) lighter?

    My latest NSV:
    I enjoy taking my smoke breaks in the on base gym facility in our building. My SB’s are 15-20 minute workouts with a mix of cardio, calisthenics and/or weights. I’ve only recently started pushing myself again after a surgery, so this was a test for myself. I’d grade myself a B+
    I was rather proud of my 19 minutes SB yesterday afternoon.
    Three rounds/sets each.
    3 minutes on the bag.
    40 hammer curls w/25 pound DB’s
    20 upright rows W/25 pound DB’s
    15 burpees
    The total of 45 burpee’s is what I am most proud of and the fact that the only break I took was moving from one station to the next. The third round on the bag my arms felt like lead and the last few burpee’s on the third set were a B. But I got it done. YAY ME! :D
    An added NSV is that my waistline is down 1.5 inches in the last 3 weeks.

    This is awesome!! How inspiring and what a creative use of your valuable time!!

    We had 2 close friend or family weddings last weekend + festivities leading up to said weddings & hosting out of town guests for the grooms side. (My husbands baby sister was married on Sunday!)

    1. I wore 2 different dresses and felt great in both of them.
    2. My husband and I fulfilled various “behind the scenes” roles for both weddings and there were a few times I had to get somewhere real quick-like. I jogged at these times, in a dress, and I felt so incredibly lighting my feet + I wasn’t winded!!
    3. I’m down at my parents house with the kids (3, 5& under) and they have a bar + plates. I can outlift my power blocks so lifting heavy today was INCREDIBLE

    That's awesome, congrats!
