NSV: With pic

So, today just out of curiosity before heating off to PT I tried on my size 18 capris, hoping that SOON they would fit so I could wear them to pt, since she works on my calves I thought it would be easier.

So, I put them on and they fit. Much excitement, I had to share. :)
(Yes that is windex behidn me, man was my mirror gross!)

Woooo! Have you had any Non-Scale Victories lately? Be sure to post them below!


  1. I don't even see any Windex. lol

    I already commented on Spark, but I'm so happy for you! That shirt is so cute and you're rocking the 18s!

    Let's see, NSV ~ my last one was doing 50 minutes of yoga on Saturday morning. New personal best since my spine injury.

  2. Every time I see one of your pictures, I don't even notice your size because I think you are so pretty and you look good right now. And the Windex? I didn't see it either. Congratulations on size 18s. That's bound to make PT more tolerable!

  3. Awesome ! How excitng when we finally get into a smaller size !!Love that shirt btw : )

  4. High Five, 18! I always loved how I looked and felt in a size 18. I can't wait to get back there again someday. Great job and excellent NSV. I hope you were floating on a cloud for a few days after this one.

  5. Congratulations! I went to the mall tonight even though I didn't need anything because I wanted to try on a pair of pants to see if they would fit me. They did! I was officially able to button a size 12 jeans from American Eagle. I'm holding off on buying any pants until I can fit a size 10 though. Makes me more likely to work at it, lol.

How Intuitive eating (did not) work for me

So I have spent roughly the last year and a half or more trying to lose weight by eating intuitively. I'm not really great at it. I have lost 30 lbs in a year and a half, it's moving at such a snails pace that I have finally decided that the only thing that works for me is tracking, and even though in my head I know I won't possibly do it forever, I have to go back to it.

So, Joey and I are tracking again, so far so good. It's only been a few days, but it at least hasn't been a struggle. I figure we will stay where we are calorie wise and after about a month and hopefully some loss (not being too focused on the scale though, it's been my downfall in the past) we can reduce our calories a little bit at a time.

I know this is the right thing to do, but I feel kind of down that I did so poorly with intuitive eating. Then again I probably wouldn't be fat if I were good at that sort of thing. :P Here's to being "On Plan." :D

Also, my job has finall…

I Was a Fat Bride

Our wedding pictures are the first thing you see when you walk into our home. 

Joey and I have been together for over 22 years. We've both gained and lost a lot of weight over the course of our relationship. Then we regained, and re-lost, you know how it goes. We got married on our 19 year anniversary, which is in March.  We had decided to get married just four months prior. So after what our friends teased was a 'brief 19 year courtship", we decided to just go ahead and do it. I know there are a million blogs and articles about losing weight for your wedding. This is not one of them. I had four months to lose weight. I don't really even remember what was going on, but I had NO desire to diet or attempt to lose weight and so I just...didn't. Joey lost a bit of weight so he could wear that fancy vest. I appreciate the effort, he looked handsome in it. :)

We thought we would never get married. We didn't see the point, we kind of still don't, and luckily, be…

Flying While Fat

"I'm scared of flying while fat," I told my friends when I was planning a trip from Pittsburgh to Denver in October of 2016. It was to be my first time on a plane, and I had heard all about Kevin Smith's problems with Southwest Airlines. There is the obvious fear of my ample hips spreading into the seat next to me, and some poor unsuspecting fellow passenger being assaulted by my fat spilling onto them. The fear of being told to buy a second seat, that I probably couldn't comfortably afford was real. Should I buy a second seat to begin with? I did decide to spring for the slightly larger seats in the front on a Frontier Airlines flight.

The anxiety leading up to the trip was palpable. I scoured the internet for stories about people's experiences of flying while fat. People who felt as if they had been crammed into a sardine can, pictures of squished thighs and disgusted and disgruntled fellow passengers, offended by the amount of space their fat fellow passen…
