Good for you!! Confidence is the positive side effect of weight loss!!8
I have a few from this week:
1.) The other day from my perch on a 2nd floor treadmill, I realized that I don't look out of place at the gym anymore. I'm not the most fit by a long shot, but I don't look out of place. Nor do I feel awkward and insecure there anymore. On the contrary, I love going, and these folks are quickly becoming "my tribe." When the gas shortage hit this week, my first thought was, "I've got to save enough to go to the gym." Turns out there was a full parking lot when I arrived because everyone else there had the same thought!
2.) My favorite jeans are now officially too big. I had to roll the waistband down to sit comfortably at prayer meeting, and I could put both my arms down the back.
3.) My husband remarked that I feel smaller and harder when he hugs me. I've noticed there are a lot more hugs, too!
4.) I'm finally starting to look smaller to MYSELF, so I'm not relying on external validation as much. Like, I notice muscle contours appearing in my legs and torso and back. And everything just looks SMALLER now. It's weird. I didn't notice much of anything until this week. Now I keep staring at myself in fascination.27
What's your recent NSV?
My resting heart rate has dropped from 95ish to 62 as of today
Today I was able to make it through a tough 30-minute circuit training workout that I couldn’t get through 6 weeks ago because I was so out of shape. Oh, and did I mention that I did 45 minutes of walking before the circuit workout?19
It took me 2 months to add 5 pounds to my bench press, 230 pounds now.21
My resting heart rate, like Nakila TDRakes, is now 62. Used to be about 72.11
Speakeasy76 Posts: 961 MemberFound an OLD picture of me from college that I hadn't seen in a long time. It used to be my "motivator" as I thought I wanted to look like that again, although it never really worked. I am 23 years old than I was, maybe weigh about the same (or less), but think I look a lot better now then I did then. I'm way more focused and purposeful with my strength training than I was back then, and I think it shows. Not only that, but I have a way healthier relationship with food and my body then I did back then.20
Not eating processed food16
Threw out and/or donated the last of my "big gut" clothes. Resting heart rate consistently at 50, like when I was 25 (now 73). Walking 3+ miles every day. Have kept weight off and maintained it for well over one year.20
I was able to walk 3 miles outside, without getting tired🥰20
I can bend forward and touch my toes. Have not been able to do that in quite a while.22
Mondowefte Posts: 150 MemberMy jeans fell down, and I hadn't even put anything in the pockets. Luckily (or unluckily), my only witness was my 7 year old, who found it hilarious. Time to buy new jeans.33
Medium. As in: 3X, 2X, 1X, XL, L, MEDIUM!
😁 😁 😁40
I ordered shirts online a size smaller and they all fit.18
I think my image speaks for itself!
A long way still to go, but progress should be celebrated!53
Taking a moment to really appreciate all that I have accomplished, and how good I feel. From my last blood test, everything, is in the normal range. Started on 9/1/20 weighing 194 lbs. Last Thursday I was at 141.8. I'm truly feeling grateful and powerful.😁21
So I went shopping. I went to the vintage shops and to the cute independent boutiques where nothing was ever available in my size. I tried on a million things and actually enjoyed it! I had sales people in 2 stores tell me I had accidentally picked the wrong size and bring me smaller ones. CRAZY.21

You are to be congratulated. I had a friend who had to have her wedding ring cut off her finger, because it was turning black with no blood flow. Can you imagine? Keep up the good work.6
I owned the mountain biking trails this weekend. I conquered terrain features that I normally would have walked my bike over. I did not walk at all this time. 100% time in the saddle!24
Managed ten minutes on the bike tonight before my calves started to ache. This is progress. I was only able to do five before.26
