A cleaning NSV...?

So, I generally do all the housework on the weekend now because I'm just too pooped after work during the week (new job, still adjusting to schedule and commuting). I did dishes, laundry (up and down to the basement), cleaned the whole bathroom, and vacuumed/washed the living room. When I finished I was like, wow, I'm not sweating. It really isn't even work to clean anymore. I love when these little things sneak up on me, even almost three years out. Even if I'm celebrating cleaning ;)

I've heard non-WLS moms say they were thirsty a lot during pregnancy as well. I was going to say it's just normal -- I love when we can say we're just normal :) It feels like my whole life I was defined as obese and not normal, so that feels a bit weird to say.

I did the same on the weekend. I used to put stuff on the stairs that needed to go upstairs and then do it all at once. Now I run up and down the stairs - not as efficient, but I have the energy to do so and it turns into exercise as well. My son told me that I have energy like my daughter x 10. As I'm 31 years older, that is a great thing.

Celebrate everything! Just not with food - lol.

That's a great NSV! I don't think I'll ever celebrate housework (I hate it) but it sure is nice that it's not a literal pain in the you know what anymore...just a mental one, for me, lol.

Perhaps we can say I'm celebrating being active without sweating or getting stuff done without being sweaty, instead of saying that I'm celebrating cleaning lol.
