I cannot recall for the life of me what NSV stands for..lol...but I know what it means and I had another one today....several month ago after I lost my 1st 20lb I went shopping with a girlfriend of mine to Lane Bryant just to use a coupon I had. I was looking in the clearance section and there was a pair of pants I loved but they were a size 14 (a big size 14) they were a casual somwhat stretchy waiste ( with a button) pants. really cute...its was the only pair they had and they were only like 5 bucks...I took them into the dressing room and I could get the up but not even close to buttoning...I had at least 4-6 inches maybe more...but I went ahead and bought them anyway cause I figured I would eventually get into them...well tonight, after the gym, I was diggin in my closet and find the pants still in the bag...I slipped them on and .......Im sure you know what is coming next...they fit..I could button them with no problem ...I dont think Im a size 14 yet, probably a 16 now since my size 18 pants are getting big but I was like WOW these freakers actually fit!! I had a really good workout at the gym too...sweated my butt off . The class room has mirrors all around side to side front to back you cant avoid seeing yourself..normally I just dont look..lol. sometims I catch myself and think omg look at my sagging gut..will it ever be small??.but sometimes like tonight I look and really can see the change finally..I look slimmer not skinny but definitly slimmer. and I am so glad...when I first started I would catch myself in that mirror and get soooo disgusted! ok AND one more NSV (whatever it means) I change into my gym clothes at work before I head out to the gym...when I first started doing that I usually struggled to get my socks on, shoes on and all that jazz..and would have to it on the toilet and still struggle to get them on...today I realized I can easily lift my foot up...still standing mind you...hold it up while I put my sock on, same with my shoes..I wasnt out of breath or struggling..it was just so simple and I barly noticed. I dont know when I started doing that! I dont know if 50lbs is the magic number or what but its seems like it is just coming together...all the sudden people are noticing, Im noticing...and things are just starting to change! I cant imagine what will happen whenI lose 100lbs! As far as my fill goes....as you know I had it on Tuesday...I just really started eating solids today...I had a protein drink for breakfast because I had morning meetings and no time to eat....for lunch I eat 1 and half beef fajitas and was very full and had no problems with getting stuck and it went down easy than tonight my husband made grilled shrimp on top of a spinach salad..it looked so good...but I took a bite of a shrimp and it got stuck...wasnt a bad stuck but I knew I couldnt keep eating..I waited for about 5 minutes and it finally passed I tried to eat some more and I mean I literally have to cut it up very small and chew chew chew...if I take one slightly larger bite I feel like im getting stuck again...Im so hungry and just want to eat but for some reason the band is not liking this salad or shrimp....at this rate it would take me 2 hrs to eat this salad!! I really wanted to write about the success I was seeing so hopefully I helped someone today that read this!
