Weight Loss Wednesday

So another Wednesday has come. Another Weight Loss Wednesday. Another Wednesday to tell you I didn’t lose any weight. I stayed the same, which is a small victory, but a victory all the same.

My tip for the week: enjoy the Non-Scale Victories (NSVs). When you are enjoying a healthy lifestyle and making positive changes in your life, there are NSVs all around you.

For example, someone whose hasn’t seen me in awhile came into my office last week. I got up from my desk to grab something for her, and (as my back was turned to her) she said, “Omygosh, Cali Girl! Your ass is not there anymore. Omygosh! How did you do that?”

That, my bloggy friends, is an NSV. Look for them – they are everywhere and just waiting for you take notice and give them a title. They will make youfeel better about yourself and your day instantly.

Are you pants feeling a tad looser? Can you see your collar bone again? Did the construction worker whistle at you, finally? Whatever it is – take it and relish in it! You’ll be glad you did!

I long to see my collar bone - I remember those days...

I love the NSV moments and I feel encouraged to look for some in my life - and you go girl, getting rid of the butt is something I also long for...

I have a new yard duty..standing at the flag pole after school. I think I am there to direct traffic, I am not totally sure. I usually do a cross walk duty. Anyway, this little girl comes up to me yesterday and says, "Have you seen my mommy?" She must have been a first grader. So I reply, "Well, I don't think I have. What is her name and what does she look like?" To which this little one replies, "Well, my mommy is super skinny just like you but her hair is yellow!" OMG! I honestly laughed out loud! NEVER in my life has ANYONE called me superskinny! God love her....even if it was a lie!
We take what we can get! Now I wanna see your non existent butt!

My neighbor asked if I had lost weight this afternoon. It felt good.....REALLY good!

Well...truth be told, my bum is still in place. I must consider the source of the NSV and the larger tushie from which it hailed.

Bek: I so love to see my collar bone. Something about it makes me happy, happy!

Heather: Maybe, knowing that I will see you in December (I will see you, right?) will prompt me to actually lose my bum! Right now I am at a stand still.

Queeny: Ah yes, the best NSV of all! I love it when people ask that question!

I just ordered Jillian Michaels' (Biggest Loser trainer) 30 Day Shred. Someone told me it takes 20 min a day. So we'll see!
