So this month's theme of my Happiness Project is the Physical aspect of my life and I'm happy to say that the numbers on the scale are going down. Not way down, but down enough to make me happy. I've lost 4.5 lbs so far in two weeks, but more than that I feel healthy and good about myself. I've noticed this month that there are other victories out there besides the number on the scale not making me want to cry. I'm calling them non-scale victories or NSV.
Like when I went out this weekend for my birthday and I didn't need to wear spanx...nsv!
When Andy is drinking a delicious beer straight from our kegerator and he asks me if I want one and I say no and actually mean it...nsv!
When I went out to dinner and only had one bite of my birthday dessert because I wasn't really hungry when in the past I would have devoured it just because it was there...nsv!
When I can indulge in a treat without feeling guilty because I know that it's ok in moderation...nsv!
When the girls at work offer me a piece of chocolate, a bite of french fries, a munchkin and I decline because it's really not worth it even if it does taste a hell of a lot better than my carrots...nsv!
Now if only I could nab the ever elusive NSV of fitting into my skinny jeans.
