Good Morning, sunshines! You're probably thinking "NSVs? Is that some kind of drug?"

And you'd be right.. and sort of wrong. NSVs are "Non-Scale Victories" (and technically these could give you high. high on life of course). We all know that for someone trying to lose weight, sometimes stepping on that scale once a week is torture.

Especially when you see no weight loss, or worse, a weight gain. It is so easy to get discouraged! So I think it's important to reflect on things we did well that week, instead of what the scale is telling me. Those things are called "Non-Scale Victories".

So today I'm linking up with Katie and Lex for


My Non-Scale Victory this week happened yesterday! My goal for this week was to try to drink 4 full bottles of water during the day. It sounds a lot easier than it actually is.

But I not only drank all 4 yesterday, I almost finished a 5th. Balloons and confetti fell down from the ceiling. There was band, with 76 trombones. Someone brought cake..

Okay, so none of that happened. And definitely no one put cake in front of me. That would have been a dangerous situation. I'm actually 100% positive that no one noticed, except for me. I'm the only person who knew that I had reached (and exceeded) my goal. Which was okay. For me, that's what the Non-Scale Victories are all about.. I was proud of myself. The scale may or may not reflect that come Monday morning. But I will know I did it. A big high five for me!

So go link up with Katie and Lex and spread the word about your NSV this week. Then give yourself a pat on the back. Then get back to work. :)


  1. Way to go! Getting in the habit of drinking more water can be difficult, but 5 bottles! Amazing job. Congrats!

  2. I stuggle so bad with the water!! So good for you!!!

  3. Water used to be hard for me. I was addicted to pop! Now I drink what I call Fizzy pop which is just sparkling water. Its awesome and gets my water in! Thanks for sharing your experiences with us!


I love you people! Let's be friends.
