CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - #30Tipsin30Days - Day 17: Non-scale victories!
There may come a time when you don't think you're making progress. When the scale is not your friend. It's during those times when I realize just how important a non-scale victory (or NSV) is.
It's changes that you've noticed despite what the scale might say. I've had so many since I started my journey on #TeamNOSugar - but these stand out the most.
- The first time I wore a dress without a jacket on TV. This was HUGE for me. Especially considering how I had ALWAYS worn a jacket and never felt comfortable enough to do so. I felt like a million bucks in this simple, black dress I found at Stein Mart.
- The first time I wore stripes on my bottom half. This from a gal who always used to favor black skirts/pants and never thought prints and stripes was something I could rock. Again, I felt amazing - you couldn't tell me nothing, LOL! I've since learned it's all about the width of the stripes and that diagonal stripes are your friend (as opposed to horizontal ones.)
- That time I ran 100 miles in a month. Yep, you read that right. July 2014. 100 miles in 31 days. I NEVER thought I could do that. But I felt strong, powerful and like I could do anything I set my mine, too. I met my running goal (after being challenged by a college classmate) even after being sidelined for nearly a week with knee pain. Your body will achieve what your mind believes!
So, whatever your non-scale victories are - celebrate them! Whether it's a new outfit, a normal BP or A1C or the fact you can run a mile without stopping.
Whatever it is - it's JUST as important as the number on the scale!
