005: Fit to the Finish Weight Loss Podcast: NonScale Victories

Fit to the Finish Podcast

I think that celebrating each pound on the scale and each positive change you see during your weight loss effort is very important. That’s why I dedicated an entire podcast to finding and celebrating non-scale victories.

When I was morbidly obese and found it hard to walk from one end of our mall to another, the day that I could walk from one end and back without feeling as though I needed a Cinnabon for energy was a huge accomplishment.

It can be easy to get so scale focused that you miss out on some of the not-so-obvious victories that come with losing weight. And although you may not see as many victories if you just have 10 or 15 pounds to lose, there are still victories that come and should be celebrated.

Listen to the podcast here or download it to your computer. You can subscribe to the podcast in iTunes as well. If you do like it, I’d love for you to leave a positive review of it on iTunes as that will help more people find the podcast.


Let me know what you think or if you have any questions!ย Diane

    Great podcast, Diane. The non-scale victories are what motivate us during the months that it takes to loose a large amount of weight. Thanks for the reminder of my NSV’s- being in photos, being able to move freely, looking at myself in the mirror.

    Staying on track and sustaining the changes are long term processes. NSV’s make the path sweet, without the sugar. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love your podcasts!! It’s a great way to reach people and you do it really well, Diane!

    I have heard women blame their husbands for their bad diet, among a myriad of other things, lol

    They are probably accurate ๐Ÿ™‚

    Loved your podcast. And so true. I actually have been avoiding the scale and using a pair of my lower weight pants to gauge where I am at. It is working beautifully. THere was four inches between the closure and now it is touching. Wahoo!

    And I have to say it- but you are hard on yourself. The part about your fat spilling over the seat. It is not a gross image for me. I see it as a symptom. We all have things that some pople would see as gross. But it is their own short comings. Being overweight is simply a noticeable outcome of a adeeper problem. That is not to say that I dont look at my own image and baulk because I a=sometimes o, but I have worked on loving it regardless because my body, does things for me. It is mine. And order for me to lose weight I have to love myself enough to do it.
