Last week I noticed that I’d had a few Non scale victories recently, I’ve changed my life a great deal over the last few years and that really is showing with my new endeavours. I’ve also bought some new clothes recently. I shop online a lot because I HATE shopping with crowds of people, so I have to guestimate the sizes as they seem to vary so much. I ordered a dress in a size I kind of considered “my size” and it was too big. Like 3 sizes to big.
So I started to evaluate what actually fits me and it’s 4 sizes smaller than when I started this journey. I wear normal clothes now. From normal shelves. Not from the chubby girl range.
NSV number 2 : I actually can look at my face without feeling unwell or cringing. This is me on the way to the pub last weekend.
That night went a lot like this…
Finally there is the non scale victory that the title of this post is referring too. For a number of years I didn’t regularly wear deodorant. I didn’t need to because I rarely sweated. I lived under the illusion that it was because I wasn’t really a sweater. I didn’t ever smell myself (and never had any complaints!) so I felt pretty certain that I wasn’t much of a sweaty person.
It hit me today when I noticed that I needed to pop some deo on (code for I caught a wiff of myself) that the reason I never broke a sweat before is because I never considered doing anything that would break a sweat. For instance back then we lived around a 10 minute walk from the shopping centre and where I currently go everyday. Back then we wouldn’t have considered walking there from our place, we always drove (and paid for parking!). Well, it is up a big hill and down another hill.
Recently I’ve been parking there. Deliberately. Doing the walk. And I’ve had a little sweat on. It’s been swampy humid and wet recently.
I’m strangely proud of having to use deodorant.
Whats your strangest NSV?
