Non-Scale Victories

I am a huge fan of measuring goals that aren’t on the scale. It’s really hard to measure small successes on the scale. When I run more, I usually gain a pound or two, but loose inches. I’m not using the scale as much as I was a few months back. I’m fairly satisfied with my weight, but would love to lose a few inches and tone up a bit. Still staying pretty steady at 156-157lbs.

I did a little shopping this weekend. I knew that I could mostly wear a size 8, but this weekend, every single size 8 at three different stores fit with some room, too! Woo-hoo! I don’t think I have consistently worn a size 8 since the end of high school. All through college, I’m pretty sure I was wearing a 10.

It felt so good to grab shorts and Capri pants at American Eagle and not have to dig to the bottom for the big girl sizes. Anyone know what I’m talking about?! When you gotta find the sizes on the very bottom of the pile because it’s all size 0’s and 2’s on the very top?!

What about going to the dressing room and finding that you have to have the salesperson grab you a smaller size?? In the past it was always the opposite. I always was hopeful and grabbed the smaller size, often even not asking for the larger size, just giving up in sadness.

So yes, one trip to the mall, but several feel good moments over the course of a couple hours!


  1. That's awesome! I am heavier now than I have ever been and hate it. I want to be losing too!

  2. That is definitely a good day!! Way to go!

  3. I am SOO with you girl as I only weigh myself once a mth to make sure I haven't lost myself.
