Hello Fall! Does anyone have any goals, NSV's especially for fall?



Recommended Posts

We are finally getting the cold fall weather here in Missouri. I've waited years to wear boots that would zip around my larger calves and now that I can I've been sporting them proudly. I've been shopping for all fall clothes and it's just amazing how different the experience has been from last fall. Last fall I was wearing a size 18 (snug) and this year I'm shopping for size 8 which opens up a lot of new options I never had before. My goal is to do as may fun fall inspired activities outside with the kids that I can. Thing I never did with them like apple picking, hay rides, corn mazes, visiting the pumpkin patch, fall festivals ect... I feel alive now. I'm excited to get out and live this fall as apposed to sitting in the house being unhealthy and sluggish. I love fall! Unlike summer I can dress to cover up the parts of my body I'm not thrilled with yet and not look like a crazy loon wearing long sleeves in the middle of summer :) This is going to be the best fall in all of EVER! Ha! So what are you looking forward to?

It won't be this year, but I am looking forward to: wearing boots (both fashionable and hiking boots) and fall clothes (sweaters, cords, tweeds, etc.), Going to football games and the fall racing meet at Keeneland. Homecoming. Fall art festivals. Taking pictures in the mountains.

Several years ago I went on a weekend photo workshop in West Virginia. I had fun but was limited due to mobility. I want to go again. And there are some more I would like to go to.

I absolutely love the color purple and all shades of it. I have shied away from wearing it because I would look at myself in the mirror and see Barney. Well, not any more! I bought a purple winter coat and I look good in it! Not like Barney at all! :D I am looking forward to wearing my purple coat!

@@TammyDTM That's funny you should say that because I almost bought a silky purple shirt today but it was sleeveless and I was afraid it would be too big by the time I could actually wear it. I love the color purple too!

@@Margie122 That was actually my first goal! I bought some that finally fit (still wide but fit) now that I can wear them they are getting loose. I wish I would have bought the regular size instead. Oh well live and learn!

Would I sound horrible if I said I've done the hayrides, pumpkin picking, etc stuff and would rather put my eye out than do it again??

My boys are 11 and 12, so not as interested in this stuff any more. Now they want to do the haunted houses etc, which is fine. Plus, the orchard is known for all their pies and fall treats I can't eat anyway. I'll pass on the temptation and having to pick hay off every article of clothing. Christmas is my thing. Bring on the lights and shows and SHOPPING!

So fall goals... Wearing the knee high boots... Yup, I now own a pair and am breaking them in! Getting used to running in cooler (cold) weather. I'm still in weight loss phase, so managing my diet in light of all the comfort food fall throws in your face!!

@@dhrguru lol! No it's ok. I'm still naive so the pictures I've seen look fun! I'm not sure if I can do the haunted house without pissing on myself and that would be pretty embarrassing.....for the kids ;)

NSV for the fall happened Friday - I bought a pair of boots I have wanted for years and they are regular width! Not the extended calf! The sales lady brought me the extended calf first and I was wearing them and wondering why they felt so sloppy when she said "Oh those are extended calf! Let me get you the regular ones."

I reached my maintenance phase in the spring. So during the summer I set some NSV's that I wanted to focus on and it was a fabulous summer.

My fall NSV's are:

ride a Ferris wheel for the first time (always been to scared) and I am trying to do things outside my box!

Kayak with the manatees once it gets a little cooler

Take at least two new hikes

Go zip lining

I am pre-op, so my biggest NSV goal right now is to stay on plan for my pre-op diet. I don't have my surgery date yet so the end isn't exactly in sight! I am on day 4 and last night I *almost* ate a slice of my sister's stuffed crust pizza, it smelled sooo good! Instead I left the table with my chicken and broccoli so I didn't have to be around such negativity ????

Seeing all of your posts about wearing fall boots is so inspirational! I hope to be doing the same next fall ????????????

My Fall NSV happened this weekend. I went to a pro football game. I was able to sit in the seat with room to spare. I we also walked 5 miles a day and took the stadium stairs up and down with no problems or the need to stop and rest. I was so excited!
