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.
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. :)
