First NSV

Today's post is brought to you by the letters NSV and the number 1!

Lapband lingo time...NSV stands for Non Scale's the weight loss success that we see outside of the pounds lost.  Things we can do that we couldn't do before...things we can wear that were too tight...things other people notice and remark on...

I've been kind of wondering what my first NSV would be...and then it happened...last weekend at the pool.

Imagine me in my super stylish one piece suit with an underwire bra for added boobage support.  I'm swimming around with my kids...munchkin is dog paddling around with her arm floaties bouying her up and little man in a seated floaty kicking his chubby little thighs and splashing in the water when they blow the whistle for the 15 min break.

We paddle to the side of the pool.  I help munchkin out the hand her little man and then HOISTED MYSELF OUT OF THE POOL.  I didn't even stop to think about it...I just did it.

Do you have any idea how long it's been since I've hoisted myself anywhere?

It's always been pool ladders for me...which also sucks because they are usually rickety and old and unstable and even worse than a fat chick cannonballing herself into the pool would be the fat chick breaking the ladder and collapsing into the pool.

Yes, we worry about stuff  like this.

But not I can hoist.



  1. Oh wow--that is amazing!!! I agree--the scale may fluctuate, but those NSV moments do not lie. Way to go!!! This really inspired me--just what I needed today!!! :)


  2. Congrats! That's wonderful!!! :)
