Non Scale Victories



Recommended Posts

I've noticed significantly less chub rub this summer than all my previous summers. I live in Arizona. I had to make sure my thighs were shaved dolphin-smooth before I went out in a dress in the summer, or I would have heat rash and chafing within an hour. Usually I ended up with that anyway, so I would wear capris or jeans. Now it seems to be a complete non-issue. I still get hot, but not even close to the degree I did when I was 100lbs heavier. It's like I was wearing 2 winter coats every summer before this one!

I. BOUGHT. A. BIKINI. TODAY.

(contemplated posting a pic of me wearing it, but I don't have the balls to do that yet....maybe later, 😎).

I have to say most cases of bikinis and balls don’t end well...IMHO 😏☺️

Strapless Bras.

I can now wear one and it actually holds my boobs up...like a regular bra! Not like before, when my trunk and boobs were so big that strapless bras preformed no more than glorified pasties.

(side note: I just realized that almost all my posts today have been about boobs. yikes.)

Right?!? So much better than having to blindly fasten those "4 hookers" bras and miss one then have to start over again...

I haven't lost much in the past 2 weeks, but I did fit pretty well into size 12 jeans today. Haven't worn 12 since junior high. So down from 24 to 12 is just amazing to me. It's still so hard to get used to looking at the "new me."

I was gifted with this beauty by my boyfriend to help me in my new journey... And because he wants Soups which he received promptly😂

Congratulations! Getting into 12's from 24 was very exciting for me too! I was actually pretty content there. But then I made it to 10 which is where I'm at now! I can't even imagine getting to single digits sizes! I'm not pressuring myself into it though. I just keep working the program, letting whatever happen... happen.

Here's a little NSV story. When I first got to my current assignment last year, I was confronted with tiny blue armchairs in every office. Just looking at them, I knew they would be difficult to sit in, but I tried anyway. I needed the help of two people to get out! Yesterday, I found myself alone in a room with one of the little monsters and decided to try my luck. It was still an uncomfortable beast but I got in and out of it without any struggle, although not much room to spare. Still, it was a victory and I don't have to avoid the chairs and stand, or have another chair rolled in because I don't fit.

I wore a wrap dress today, and two things were notable:

1) the wrap now fits me so completely that I don’t have to pin the bodice and I also don’t have to worry about gusts of wind - if the first panel flies up, the second one wraps all the way to my hip and has me covered

2) I completely forgot about wearing anything on my thighs, so when I hit the street and felt how muggy it was my heart sank, imagining friction burns on my inner thighs by day’s end. But after 2 miles of walking? NOTHING. even with the extra skin, NO CHAFING AT ALL.
