Strange NSV and BOOBS

Hi all,
Hope things are going well. Things are the same over here. Crazy busy at work and we are moving offices this week which just adds un needed stress to everyone. Lucy is doing good. Still struggling with the snacking and night time eating but doing ok otherwise. I don't weigh myself this week as it is the week before my TOM and I always stay the same or show a gain so I just avoid the scale. I think restriction is perfect most days but then we all have days when we are wide open or closed shut, just the nature of the beast.

So I was at my new gym yesterday. I changed gyms to be closer to the new office and have been going for about 2 weeks. Anyway when you sign up you get 3 free training sessions. Yesterday I was on the treadmill and this big burly Russian trainer came up to me and was saying I have seen you here and want to sign you up for the free training sessions etc. Anyway he asked what I usually do and I said just cardio but know I have to work on my arms etc. Anyway so for the NSV, he then said to me are you looking to loose weight? And I said yes. And he then said " is it about 15-20 pounds you want to loose?" So why am I excited ? Because I don't think I have ever been at a spot in my life where I "only" need to loose 15 or 20 pounds so yeah NSV for me...
Technically I want to loose 21 pounds to reach my personal goal of 140, 41 pounds to my surgeons goal for me of cough cough 120. But I chalked that up to an NSV for me :-)

BOOBS---- so I am so excited for all of you that are getting together and I would love love love to go but I have so many things planned for this year. I am going to FL ( every 3 months to see my family ) and then I am going to Scotland and Ireland and also my best friend is getting married in November so I wont be able to make it. To all who are going have a blast, I am sure you guys will have so much fun

Anyway have a great week all!!!


  1. What an awesome day!!

    Where do you come to when you're in Florida? I'm near Tampa.

  2. You are so close to your goal! Good job!

  3. Hi Carla, that is an awesome NSV! Only 20 pounds left, that is like nothing in the grand scheme of things...My surgeon gave me a goal of 150, very generous!

  4. Too bad about BOOBS!! I am not sure whether I'll be there or not (cannot decide or plan b/c of all of my stuff going on.)
    Anyhow: good luck with the new gym and enjoy!
