NSV (measurement victory)

I started my measurements in December of 2011. I have randomly done measurements since. I took my measurements just now and since I have started Crossfit in April of this year I have lost a total of 16.25 inches (total!) Since my last set of measurements (one month) I haven't had much time to excersise due to injuries, weddings and other life obstacles. So in 4 weeks and 2 days I lost 3.25 inches (total).

I have a hard time loosing weight because my scale never moves, to this day it still irritates me BUT my measurements are changing like crazy! For those who are stuck on the scale buy a measuring tape for $2-3 from Walmart. You'll be so happy you did! You CAN see progress this way (and when you've had a bad month)

Yay! I'm glad you are seeing changes! You reminded me I need to use my CrossFit Groupon...

Do it! I'd love to hear what you think :) It is literally changing my life in ways a gym membership and personal trainer could not.

I definitely need to!  I've heard nothing but good things.  My brother and his wife have done it and loved it!  Great results.  I'm trying to get off what I can in the next 6 weeks, before I start my nursing program.

I've been lurking for a while and finally have to ask--what does NSV stand for!?! I've been trying to figure it out for weeks! Sorry!

Non Scale Victory... anything that doesn't involve a scale. :) like losing inches or fitting into a smaller jean size, etc
