Day 59 NSV Linkup!

Soooo, this week I've been at a bit of a self imposed stall.  Like I said previously I weigh myself daily so that I know where I'm at.  I don't think I have tracked one time this week, because my schedule has been so helter skelter.  I knew that this week was going to be like this though.  Yesterday was my 16 year anniversary to my wonderful hubster.  Unfortunately we didn't get to do a big thing b/c we had to go to a basketball banquet for our daughter but we did end up going out to eat afterwards.  We went to Logan's & I don't care what anyone thinks I was FULLY prepared to have me some dessert to celebrate, but alas my stomach just said no.  There just wasn't any room left.  But I didn't do that bad really & was proud of my choices actually.  Here's what I had:

6 oz. filet & lobster tail
1/2 serving of their fried onion petals
mac & cheese as my other side (of which I ate every bite)

Pretty ok right?  Well I'm pretty sure that's not where the calories came in.  The real calories were in this drink that I ordered.  I wish I could remember the name, but it's some Mango/Rum drink that they served in this HUGEMONGOUS mason jar that didn't taste like it had a bit of alcohol in it, but it was really sweet & yummy. So I guess technically you could say that I did have my dessert. 

All in all I made a pretty good choice & I was happy with myself, plus I ate a pretty good lunch yesterday beforehand & this morning my weight was only up by 1 lb, but I'm sure that's just sodium.  My goal is still to get to that 263 so I can take my first set of "after" pictures & I promise I will get there soon!! 

Now on to my NSV linkup

Last night when we went out to eat I put on this coat that I've had for forever.  Sadly since I've owned this coat I have never zipped it up.  It fit ok, it was just too tight to zip but guess what?  Last night I put that sucker on & not only could I zip it up but I could wrap OVER the zipper.  I was pulling it around me & could actually pull the closure past each other.  Seriously, I am starting to love NSV's more than the scale itself, it's so fun to discover these new things!!  I would love to hear some of my reader's NSV's as well!

Hope you guys have had a great week!!


Guess who is now a follower of this little 'ol blog??? That's right, TIFFANY!!!!!!!!!!!  My super gorgeous, healthy, 187 lb weight loss champion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so excited that she's following my blog & I hope to be just as inspirational to others as she has been to me (and tons of others I'm sure).  Now the pressure's really on to do good....:)


  1. Congrats on the coast NSV!

    Candi, we are just in different places, you and I. The important thing is you did the best you could, and I'm sure you will continue to forge on in the right direction. :)

    1. Nah, I don't think we're that different at all. Differences are what makes the world go 'round & I love seeing how other people do things differently, it gives me great ideas.

  2. Candi, I came to you through the NSV linkup. It sounds like you are pretty dedicated to reach those goals. If you like you can check out my site If you are interested I have a link at the top for a free product review of weight loss supplements.

  3. Great job on the choices :) I had same experience with a coat I bought last year. When I bought it I couldn't zip it all and I felt like I would rip it if I moved a certain way and this winter I was able to zip it and felt a lot more comfortable in it. It's a great feeling isn't it?

  4. Hey lady, I am visiting again from the link-up, awesome job on getting to zip up the coat, isnt that an amazing feeling?! Great job this week!!

    1. I am seriously starting to love NSV's even more than the numbers on the scale!! But I guess I can't do that b/c it's the numbers on the scale that make these NSV's possible!

  5. Found you on the NSV Link Up!

    That Logan's meal sounds amazing! It doesn't help that I'm feeling hungry now (I forgot my water this morning, so it's really thirst in a hunger mask).

    Way to go on the jacket! I have a pair of capris that I'm doing the same way.. Just waiting..


    1. Girl we'll be zipping up that jacket & wearing those capris in no time!!

  6. Wow! Congrats on that coat, so awesome! Thanks for linking up and sharing :)

  7. congrats on your victory. I am happy for you.
