NSV at the playground

Time for a quick update.  I am still on a major stall - I'm at the lowest weight I have ever managed to arrive at but this time I'm hanging in there cuz I know I am not done losing yet, not to mention having a tool that lets me keep working at it.  AND I am working out really hard so there's got to be some muscle-building going on.  Now for the NSV...I took my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter to the playground and had a blast playing with her...then she said, "Gramma, I want to go on the slide WITH you." Well, this is a tiny little 'twirly' kind of slide and I have not been on any slide since I was about 10...but thought, well, no one is here, might as well see what happens if I just sit at the top with her.  Hmmmm not too bad, actually let's give this a go...and we did.  I slid down the kiddie slide and I fit LOLOL!!!!  Then we climbed the rope bridge and I said I can't get thru the top it's too narrow...well, let's see, Hummmm I CAN get thru it just fine.  I am actually small enough to do this kind of thing now....funny how I didn't even think to try but my baby girl got me playing with her. How much FUN it is to get to do all these things with her, not jus****ch!! Hooray for my RNY!! :)

What wonderful NSVs! You will be a really fun and active grandma now! It really does take a lo g time for our minds to realize we are not so big anymore. I'm glad your granddaughter convinced you to play with her!

That is GREAT! I just have one question. I am new so, what is an NSV?

NSV - Non Scale Victory   ... enjoying a victory that isn't reflected in numbers on a scale but in something to do with living anew :)

Yes Yes! I'm right there with you!  I had the same thing happen earlier this spring.  Was at the park with the grandkids and felt a little energetic so after their pleas, I gave it a try... they loved sliding with their Nana!  Enjoy your new playtime with your granddaughter!
