Non-Scale Victories


When I used to be really active in weight loss forums, whether it was a South Beach Diet forum or a calorie counting forum, there was always a topic called, "Non-Scale Victories."

Non-Scale Victories are achievements we encounter during our weight loss journey that have nothing to do with the scale. For example, if you've been wanting to fit into a pair of your old jeans and all of a sudden one day you try them on and BAM they fit! That is a non-scale victory.

Lately for me, my non-scale victories have come in the form of health achievements and not really anything to do with weight loss. My non-scale victories this month include the following:

1. Drinking the right amount of water everyday.
2. Making diverse Nutribullet juices.
3. Being able to complete my kickboxing DVDs without taking a break mid-way through.

Truthfully, I can't wait until my non-scale victories involve my teeny-tiny jeans that I used to wear back in the day. That day will be super sweet.

Stay tuned though...it'll happen!
