In This Issue1) What is a Non-Scale Victory?
2) Celebrating Holiday Non-Scale Victories
3) A Heartfelt Thank You
The holidays are in full swing as we speak, so I felt it especially important to talk about non-scale victories.
Because being healthy isn’t just about the weight you lose, it’s about the life you gain!
Gaining weight and/or not being able to lose any weight over the holiday season is usually a major source of stress. If you're only focused on the numbers on the scale, you might get frustrated or upset at your (perceived) lack of progress.
That's where non-scale victories come in. They make a huge difference.
What is a Non-Scale Victory?In case you don’t already know, non-scale victories, or “NSVs” are positive outcomes you enjoy as a result of positive diet and lifestyle changes. They have nothing to do with the scale.
NSVs can be any noticeable change along your weight loss journey, such as:
•Having more energy
When you notice the inner and outer changes you’ve made, you’re more likely to stay motivated for the long haul.
Celebrating Holiday Non-Scale VictoriesTry stepping off the scale over the next couple of weeks. Celebrate the holiday season in a new way by celebrating your non scale progress.
Lift your spirit and reinforce your resolve by paying special attention to all your holiday related non-scale victories. For example:
•Saying no to social pressures to eat or drink
•Not giving in to cravings
Look around. Acknowledge every single non scale victory, no matter how large or small. Celebrate them. Celebrate. Celebrate. And keep celebrating ;)
The TakehomeThe number on the scale isn’t as valuable as you think. It’s simply a snapshot of one moment in time.
You can get a truer picture of your progress by recognizing the diet and lifestyle changes you make day to day, week to week, month to month. Those changes amount to much more than the number you call your weight.
Keep going. You’ve got this!
Start TRACKING your non scale victories. SEE HOW
A Heartfelt Thank YouI just wanted to take a quick second to thank you for letting me into your inbox. I really appreciate the privilege!
Wishing you and your loved ones a happy and healthy holiday. I look forward to the journey through 2023 with you.
I have lots of new and exciting things planned coming next year. Stay tuned ;)
