NSVs (or Non-Scale Victories) are great things! (NOT to be confused with STDs!!)
Sometimes that scale is just a plain liar! Our weights are always changing depending on the time of day, foods eaten the day before of even that “time of the month”. You can exercise like crazy, watch your eating down to the last calorie and STILL the scale does not move! So frustrating!
So what is a health striving person to do?? That is where the NSVs come in.
Some common NSVs that you may find that pertain to you:
1- You lose inches but not weight. This is a big one for most people but they don’t realize it. Before starting a health journey take a minute to measure and record your body measurements: axilla, chest, midriff, waist, hips. You can also measure arms and legs but I see the biggest changes happening in those places.
