What's Your Most Recent NSV
I was able to go down one more notch in my belt! Boss even noticed that my clothes are getting baggier and said that I should probably invest in a new wardrobe. I don't necessarily want to do that right now because I am in between sizes, but it's nice that she noticed!
This is a good but a bit annoying problem when you are between sizes and especially when between Womens/Misses department. I have been unable to find dresses for quite some time. anyone have suggestions.10
I bought a cute jacket on sale a few weeks ago. I knew it wouldn't fit round me but I thought it would look nice worn open with a T-shirt. Yesterday I zipped it all the way up. It's a girl's jacket. I'm the size of a 14 year old girl. I wasn't even that size when *I* was a 14 year old girl!25
Just noticed today that I now only have one chin!31

You could have your clothes taken in? Lots of cheap dressmakers/alteration services out there.5
Well, my scales are stubbornly refusing to budge, but my chair at work has gotten even more uncomfortable, so I guess something must be happening.21
JenSchimanski Posts: 92 MemberFinally went from Obese 1 to Overweight for my BMI. very very happy to achieve that41
My beautiful, fit, slender daughter passed on a coat to me because she bought a different style. It fit. May I tell you I teared up?37
Just came back from a healrh check, cholesterol good, weight down 2kg since last at doctor and very close to normal bmi range.24
I am spending a few days organizing my closet. I placed slacks in order of decreasing fit, knowing there are a number
I know will be too large in a month or two. The NSV is I have a calm certainty rather than a false bravado about this. During the process, I did make a pile of favorites to save that I labeled “fear”, then I narrowed those down to two and tucked them in a drawer. Looking forward to ditching them in a few months.15
I have to have fingerprints taken for a new job and they ask for height, weight, etc on the forms.
This is the first time I not only didn’t cringe at the thought of giving my weight, but was actually kinda proud. How freeing!32
I always focus so much on the weight on my arms - I carry a proportionally large amount of weight there, and was annoyed today that one dress was still tight in the sleeves. It made it a struggle to roll up my sleeves to give blood today. It made me feel like I wasn't making any progress.
Well, I had a happy wake-up call. The elastic belt I normally wear around my waist (one like this that clips in the middle) fell off when I leaned over because it was too loose.
I know the weight it my arms will come off eventually as I lose more, so it was nice to see that I was still making great progress.18
I have been reading this thread for months! Maybe even a year. It is so motivating. I feel personally invested in many of your journeys.
Today I have a real but small one. We have ton of family coming into town this weekend. I mean 45-50 people because my twins are being baptized. This is a really big deal in our church. We are feeding everyone and housing many and I am makeing a huge Dalek cake. So, stressful day ahead. I saw a bottle of Dr. Pepper on the counter and reeealy wanted to drink it. BUT, I filled up my water bottle instead and reminded my self that the water would help me more than the soda ever would. Victory!
Glad to join all of the wonderful people on this thread. I now want to start lifting, biking, SUP, and get some dragon pants. Thank you!
Fitting into a pair of jeans I'd held onto for several years (2 sizes smaller than my peak) and fitting into them comfortably!21
Today I went to spin class for the first time in 10 months. I got sweaty, dirty and totally killed it. It felt so good to push myself physically. And as an added bonus, I left with NO SCIATICA PAIN!!! WOO HOO!!! I've struggled with a sciatica issue since April 2017. I haven't been to spin or been on my bike in many months hoping it would get better.24

As a fellow sufferer I feel your joy!!7
My clothes are fitting better, my shoulders are getting their shape back and I can see my collar bones again!18
Buying pants the next size down!15
VUA21 Posts: 2,072 MemberSo I uploaded my pics on another thread "Does this uterus make my belly look fat", showing normal posture, good posture, and flexed and posed. Holy crap!!!!! I'm freaking out a bit. I spotted my abs (barely, but flexed, I can see them starting to poke out just a bit).
My beloved five year old had to have a (very) minor operation under GA today (GA due to risk of causing further damage if she was conscious during the op).
Major, major, major stress (normally stress = forget everything and eat everything).
I really struggled to sleep last night, so watched the clock tick the night away until I couldn't stand it any more and at 5am got up and went to the gym.
Strike one for keeping it together.
My little girl and I then walked to the hospital for 8am (almost two miles, bless her, but she wanted to walk). Without breakfast as she wasn't allowed any and I couldn't actually eat . . .
Strike two for keeping it together.
After the worst hour of my life, I was allowed into recovery to see her. The nurses knew that I hadn't eaten (must be a thing with worried parents) and offered me tea and biscuits when they offered my daughter a drink and something to eat. I accepted the tea but declined the biscuits.
Strike three for keeping it together.
Got home (with little one) and DH offered me something to eat that just wasn't healthy. At all. I declined and ate some fruit, as I knew that lunch was just around the corner.
Strike four for keeping it together.
The op was successful, my beautiful little one has recovered from the GA and is back to her normal self, although a little more clingy than usual (= guilty mummy for wanting to go for a short bike ride). Daddy persuaded my little one to snuggle with him for an hour as he knew I needed to de-stress.
Strike five for keeping it together.
With the support of many, many people, including at least twenty NHS staff (I came across some of the most caring people EVER today) and my lovely family. Without them, I'd have stuffed my face (especially as I was tired and stressed) and not exercised.
My only lapse all day was needing a caffeine fix whilst my little one was in theatre. Not supposed to have caffeine but I really needed it.
But all is good and I may actually get some sleep tonight47
@Madwife2009 I’m glad all is well with your daughter. Hope you both sleep well tonight:)2
