What's Your Most Recent NSV
I went to silver sneakers this morning all jazzed up and rarin' to go. Holy moly, I thought, how long has it been since I've actually had energy? Why today? Who knows, but I felt pretty good.26
Size 14 pants and a large top today.
Downside... my bra cups are baggy...18
Even as crappy as I felt today and horrible back pain, I did it. I still got my toosh on the treadmill and did my minimum 45 minute walk. Thought I was going to die mid way thru but, the further into my walk I got, I felt better!25
#1) Last night, I jogged in place during most of Titanic (the movie).
#2) I can jog in place now.34
MarieTrees23 Posts: 35 MemberOne of the main reasons I began this journey was to help with symptoms of PCOS. 52lbs down from my highest weight (230), I got my first natural period in five years. Couldn't be happier.60
Yesterday while making dinner I was doing air squats for a challenge. My youngest daughter walks in and exclaimed in a very excited voice "Hey mom you aren't really fat anymore!" Words from the mouth of babes. She just turned 6 so hasn't quite figured out how to censor herself. Who would think I would be doing squats while making dinner, let alone not be really fat anymore. Now, I am just fat on my way to medium.
Wonderful post! I am with you! I do squats at the bus stop in the dark in the morning - don't tell anyone! lol.8
I realized today that all of my clothing (scrubs, pajamas, underwear, jeans, coats) aren't uncomfortable anymore. It's getting colder here, so more layers and a heavy coat while driving and I don't feel like a busted can of biscuits!
Also, I used to come home from work and immediately get into my "stretchy pants" you know, the pants you put on after a big meal? Now I come home and either stay in my scrubs until bed or workout leggings.
Small thoughts I know but truly a big deal realizing how miserable I felt.
I made it to the second week on C to 5K after a month or so of the first week. I'm not a runner but I'm making it22

I literally came to this thread to post about now being able to do 15 push ups in a row which happened this morning! There was a time that I couldn't even do 1 full unmodified push up! I had no idea at some point I'd be able to do 15!! Next stop 20!18

Yes, the angles are favorable...but it's still me. Seeing my upper body begin to take shape is encouraging as all heck. I have 25-30lbs of fat left...then things get real
CW 223.x lbs.
Am 6' 1/2" for reference.
Yesterday, my doctor recommended that I come off the blood pressure medication. He then joked that he should take my picture and put it on the wall, because he rarely ever gets to make that recommendation to people.44
@KareninLux I love it! Yesterday, I started working on incline push ups. (I was doing them in the girls restroom at work) Got to take advantage of it while you can.10
No muffin top in my favorite jeans! : ) I took a picture, but Android app doesn't cooperate with pictures so...YEAH for me!21

this one made me very smiley. i'd be in the same non-runner-running category if i were running . . . which i am not.
I wore a dress to work last week that didn't fit on the first day of my MFP journey, it was the dress that made me say this is enough and I started logging that day.21

Ran a 5K on Sunday!!! Ran the whole thing, didn't come in last (!), and had fun. And I hit 280 pounds that morning = 40 pounds lost. Next stop: New Year's Day First Run!70
