I actually had a couple this week. Since we sit all day at work we have fairly nice chairs...ones that I call fat-butt-friendly because they don't squish you in. Well, this week I was able to sit Indian-style in my chair at work. It's been a long time since that happened.

Then tonight, I have a pair of size 18 Levi's that my friend shrunk out of...normal Levi's, not the big-girl kind ( you know with stretchy fabric). I've been afraid to try them. It was early in high school the last time I consistently saw an 18. Tonight I was able to put them on and zip them no problem.

I nearly cried.

Congratulations!  That is a couple of nice NSV.  I can't sit Indian-style at all!

Great job!  It's sometimes hard to find those "non-scale" rewards but fitting into a chair and a pair of jeans are definitely two of them!

That is awesome about the Levi's!!! When I was younger all I wanted to wear was red tagged Levi's, but they never fit. The ones that did fit I wore them raw. When I'm at goal I'm going to get some custom fit red tag Levi's. can't wait!!!
