Non Scale Victories



Recommended Posts

Had another NSV tonight! I haven't worn heels in a very long time. I've been wearing a size 12W for a while but when I ordered a 12W and 12M both were too big! I get to return them for an 11M! Just reminds me how much the extra weight affected so many other little aspects of my body and life. I didn't expect to go down a full shoe size and width but I'm relieved! It's nearly impossible to find large stylish shoes. Not to mention that my ankles couldn't even take the strain of wearing heels before weight loss. Now that I'm not carrying an extra 125lbs heels don't feel so bad! :)

That’s great! I’m not sure if my feet will get smaller, they’re pretty bony right now, but I guess we’ll see.

If I look down, I can see...well, I can see.

9 days post op, down 10 lbs since surgery, 17 total. Knees already feel boney and like I need a pillow between them to sleep on my side.

I had the band too it eroded around my stomach so they removed it. I kept weight off many years until I became pregnant and gained 100lbs. Now I’m leaning towards getting the sleeve vs. the bypass. Why did you get the sleeve vs. the band? Are you happy

Recent (12/12), but down 30 though not focusing on it. Pants are falling off. I've got a lot of clothes that didn't fit in my closet and now they do so I've suddenly got a wide selection of clothes. I've noticed a bit less back pain too


My back pain is so much better. Actually I used to be in pain all over on a daily basis. Though I still have the occasional aches. Things have improved tremendously. With the clothes. I feel like I don't know where to start. I've been shopping in plus sized shops so long the variety I now have just amazes me.

I almost forgot this one. Even at my heaviest I had small fingers. About 7 1/4. My hubby got me a new ring for Christmas. I had to have it reduced to a size 6[emoji2]

I had my surgery 12/14/17 and my non scale victory is: I'm down a shirt size, I can now shave my legs, I can but my arms around my back and touch my fingers, my face in thinner and I am starting to have a lap. A little disappointed that I haven't lost size in my pants. 🤔
