  • I was itching to go for a walk/run last night and so disappointed I couldn’t. Was awaiting a Covid test result which has since come back negative. Can’t wait to walk tonight. Another fitness NSV: I have a leave day later this week for my birthday. Was trying to work out what I’d like to do - alone as it’s a weekday. The…
  • I’m embarrassed to admit I fell off the wagon. Gained 20kg back, almost all the lost weight. But I drew a line in the sand a couple of weeks ago. I’m eating healthier, not perfect but much healthier. I’ve turned away from sweets in the kitchen. Today I went for a run, W1D1 of C25K. I’m starting over and it was hard, as I…
  • Fell off the workout bandwagon in June 2018. Back injury and then a bunch of excuses that followed. This morning I set my alarm for 5:20am, rolled out of bed without hitting snooze and went to the gym to walk on the treadmill before work. Slowly easing back into the running! TLDR; went to the gym for the first time in 7…
  • On this day a year ago, I hit a pretty huge low when I couldn’t find anything to wear for an annual presentation event the next night. I ended up settling for a frumpy size 16 dress that looked like something my 50-year-old mum would wear (sorry to be brutally honest - but as a 20-year-old that cut really deep). The night…
  • I fell off the wagon for a month recently but coming back to this thread has helped me pick right back up where I left off. THANK YOU to everyone who has shared their NSVs. Hopefully my thoughts inspire someone else like yours have me. There is no item of clothing in my wardrobe that is too small for me, so I bought a pair…
  • I realised over the weekend that I can’t trust what I see in the mirror - and that I’m actually down to the size I want to be. Bugger the scales. I put on a pair of jeans before going to the hairdresser and all I could see in the mirror was fat, chunky thighs. I thought they looked huge. No different to when I was 25kgs…
  • I bought a block of chocolate over two weeks ago. I was actually looking for the snack sized servings of my favourite dark chocolate but I couldn’t find them, so I decided to go with the whole block - and I was determined that I would eat the chocolate in snack sized servings but only when I could fit them into my…
  • I realised yesterday that I have moved past the “have you lost weight?” stage to the “wow, you’re looking great!” stage. There’s no longer any doubt to those around me that my body has changed and the comments are even coming from people who don’t know I’m trying. Happy days! (Edited as half the post was missing)
  • I know it’s not strictly an NSV... but yesterday I officially hit the healthy weight range according to my BMI. I am sooo pumped that I had to share!!! I’m especially proud as my weight has been bouncing around the same couple of kilos for a good month (tantalisingly close to healthy BMI too) and instead of getting bogged…
  • Worked my first shift in six months at the major sports stadium in my city. To say I got a fair few comments from colleagues and regular customers is an understatement. Pretty much everyone commented on it. Motivation to keep going is at an all time high righ now! Even better, I was comfortably wearing my S work shirt from…
  • Another NSV to add today... I’ve had a storage tub of clothing that is “way too small” sitting in my closet since I started losing weight six months ago. Most of the clothes are goal pieces, as I don’t actually know how much I weighed during certain periods of my life but I do know when I was wearing these clothes. Every…
  • I’ve got a pair of size 10 jeans on! This style runs big so it’s more like a 12 and I have a little too much muffin top to wear them out in public yet... but I’m sitting in a pair of size 10 jeans and they’re all buttoned up!!!
  • I found this thread six months ago as I started on my weight loss journey and have thoroughly loved reading through every single page. Thank you to everyone who has posted their experiences here. I’m now 19kg (41lbs) down with 11kg (24lbs) to go. No one told me that I’d not enjoy junk food like I used to (and I’m not even…
