My first NSV!

Hi everyone! I am posting a mini-success story because I am kinda pumped about this. I have lost 30 lbs since May (9 lbs since joining MFP in December 2012). In May 2012 I weighed in at 232 (my heaviest) and I am now 202. I need to lose another 40 pounds still (so no pics yet, but hopefully in 6 months, or less!) but I am excited about this NSV so I just wanted to share :)

I have been able to feel my collar bone for quite some time (month or so) but today I COULD SEE IT! :D it's been hiding inside me for like 4 years :D just thought I'd share!

    NSV = non-scale victory. I had to ask the same thing a week ago :P

    people (skinny people) don't understand how something so small like this can make our day, I remember the first time I saw my collar bone, hip bones and being able to lay down without my stomach being higher then my chest bone and my fav being able to tie my shoes without holding my breath : ) nice NSV!!!

    congratulations! It's so exciting to see the small changes in your body as you begin to lose more and more weight.. I'll always remember my first NSV>>> I was able to get up from sitting in a lawn chair, and not have the chair stick to my butt as I stood! LOL!
    best of luck to you! and many more NSV's to come!:happy:
