    my jeans are poking me in the belly rather than rolling over at the waistband. I'm taking that to mean I've lost enough belly flab that my jeans actually "fit".

    A pair of jeans that had been stuffed in the back of the closet for a couple of years fit!!! Maybe not as well as I'd hoped...but they zipped easily!

    I went to Outback with my family tonight and they got cheese fries. I love cheese fries. I had ONE FRY, no bread and stuck to my steak and asparagus.

    I have been working out four times a week with yoga, and I walk everyday. But now I'm ready to add more variety. I want want to add balance ball workout to my weekly routine, but the problem is mfp doesn't have it in their exercise list. What do you think I should post it as?

    I'm very excited about wanting to improve my weekly workout, and I believe that is a good NSV. :smile:

    I love doing different exercise ball routines! I normally log mine under strength training rather than cardio since most of mine are in reps rather than time.

    Thanks for your feedback. I have a DVD and it has routines and warm ups. I think its more cardio then strength in my case, but it also involves the strength band. When the band is used other parts of the body move as well. I don't know if it is like aerobics, but I don't want to over calculate the calories either. So I'm tempted to go with yoga....

    Can't wait to start it, I'll change my weekly routine on Tuesday :wink:

    Got a new ID with my ACTUAL weight listed on it.

    My linen pants (a juniors size 9 but a bit generous as they fit like an 11) FIT! I wore them to my dr appt, and the nurse commented my pants were getting too big because I lost so much weight. AND they were my old (pre-sick and pre-obese) pants.

    I smiled and said "these old pants?" but I'm telling you, it feels good to be on track and getting back to a healthy size. I finally understand that saying that nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. Although I am at 150 pounds so I am not small by any means, but the NSVs are better than the pounds lost for sure.

    Happy Friday everyone :)

    I made a pan of brownies tonight, I was planning to have one and freeze the rest. The brownies didn't turn out very well...I didn't like them at all. Before I would have binged and ate them anyway. Tonight I ate 2 ( just to be SURE I didn't like them) then threw the rest in the trash. I have never thrown out brownies in my life.

    I hate the elliptical but recently got an app called BitGym. Did 30 minutes on Wednesday (highest time so far) and 21 minutes today. I didn't plan on using it today but was showing my mom the app and it hit a limit so figured I might as well workout

    I also did some weights today

    My sports massage therapist was working on my back and shoulders and said you could definitely tell I had been swimming. i'm assuming that's because I have been toning up and getting some visible muscle there, rather than because I smelled of chlorine! Made me feel like a boss :D

    I am able to work outside in the heat now that I've lost 100 lbs. Still have about 80 to go. I sat cross legged on the ground for the first time in....years.

    I have been wearing my size 3x clothes (working clothes) when I buy my chicken feed at the country store. But the other day, I was dressed in my 1x pant / xl top with makeup on and the ladies were amazed by my weight loss. The couldn't really tell before because of my too large clothes. They said they thought my face had looked slimmer but didn't want to say anything because weight loss is such a touchy subject but with my cloths on that fit, they knew they could make a comment.

    I've been reading these replies everyday to keep myself motivated but I FINALLY have a couple NSVs of my own! The first is that I went on a family vacation last week and felt confident enough to wear a bikini even though I weighed about the same that I did on last years vacation where I only felt comfortable enough to wear a one piece swimsuit! It just shows that although I'm still the same size,(for now lol) taking care of my physical health can also improve my mental health. The second happened this morning when I was checking myself out in front of the mirror before I took a shower(btw I'm not the only one who does that right?). I noticed that the stretch marks on my hips that were previously pink/red in color were starting to turn white and blend in with my skin. Even the stretch marks on my thighs are becoming a tiiiiiiiny bit less noticeable which is really exciting because those are the ones that I'm most self-conscious about. I've only lost about 15 pounds so far and I think it'll be another 10-15 until I can notice the change in my clothes but this really gave me the reassurance that what I'm doing is making a difference even though it's a slow process.

    Two NSVs: 1.) I went on vacation last week. Ate all the foods, and did modified workouts. Managed to maintain my current weight. (I guess it's technically a scale thing, but I'm still super proud that I pulled that off.) 2.) My endocrinologist thought my biceps were super cool and referred to them as potatoes. He then slashed my insulin resistance meds in half, with the plan to be rid of them completely in 6 months. So I guess that's 3 things!

    My potatoes are making me feel pretty.

    Realized while I was checking weight limitations on a bunch of ladders that I no longer needed to. They all took 10-40lbs more than I've got!
