Mum Celeste has had some great success with The Healthy Mummy following the programme since April 2019. She had lost almost 4 stone but felt her weight loss had not only plateaued, but she had also put on weight since the Christmas period. Even though the scales had gone up, Celeste was thrilled to see that a dressed she loved, but hadn’t fit her for a long time, finally fit like a glove!
Mum shares her non-scale victory: “It’s a perfect fit!”
“NSV! When I started Healthy Mummy in April 2019 I didn’t know what to expect, however, I noticed that lots of people had a goal outfit to work towards. So in May, I decided to pull out a dress I loved but hadn’t fit me in over 4 years.
“I have been struggling a lot since Christmas to get back into the swing of things and while I have been sticking to my meal plan mostly the scales just haven’t moved, if anything they have gone up!
“I decided to give my goal dress a try and it did all the way up I was so happy I could have cried!
“So even though the scales haven’t moved in weeks clearly I am still losing cms. 4 stone down in 10 months and can’t thank Healthy Mummy enough for giving me my life back, if you are unsure whether or not to start my advice is just start and who knows where you will end up in a few months time!”
What does non-scale victory actually mean?
A non-scale victory (NSV) is a victory that can’t always be measured by a set of scales. For instance, you may not see the number on the scales change but you’ve gone down a size in clothes or you take your measurements and realise you lost cms from your waist.
There are many types of NSV’s that are worth celebrating. It is important to recognise these changes in yourself, even if you consider them small. Focus on these NSV’s and the pounds will take care of themselves.
