if i was worth my weight in gold i would be a millionair.my riches are measured by other standards and are worth far more than any gold.

That is awesome! Right now I'm not to that point about the water, but I have cut out all soda & sugar-sweetened drinks. I drink Walmart's equivalent of Crystal Light through out the day and am working on drinking one tall glass of ice water each day. Baby steps, ya know?

woo hoo,way to go.give yourself a pat on the back not only for buying the water but for the extra exercise you had in walking to the garage and carrying the water back.it must have weighed something.we are lucky here to buy our water if you get the shops own brand it is only 19 cents for 1.5litres so much cheaper than soda.though i have a club soda and make my own fizzy water fromthe tap.

I had a none scale success yesterday I want to share. Our city water was dark brown. I am not sure why. I called but they didn't call back. So I worked through the morning but by about noon I had to have my water. So I went to the gas station on the corner and bought a gallon of water for 2 dollars. I never ever thought in my life I would be buying water. I know this sounds silly but I really had to have my water. A year ago I would have bought a case of soda it was actually cheaper. lol. but I got my water. Actually needed my water. I am still a little dehydrated today from waiting too long. I told my daughter from now on I am making sure there is at least one gallon of water stored somewhere and hopefully work up to more.

Hi Karen,

I, too, did not laugh but understood completely. Threre are times when clipping my toenails is relatively easy and then other times it's a struggle. I would imagine the more I exercise and stretch, the easier it will be.
Not overstuffing a chair, when attained, will be a great non-scale success for me. emoticon

what are your biggest or most memorable none scale success?
Hershey Park 2008!!! One of my non-scale goals was to ride anything I wanted at the amusement parks -- I fit into any of the rides I wanted to ride.

Being able to buy clothing at more stores -- some stores just didn't care the sizes I needed. Randy2 couldn't believe it when we went shopping. He would say -- lets check here and I'd say -- they don't have anything for me. He just didn't realize that everyone couldn't shop at the same stores.

what are the next none scale successes you are looking forward to most?

I want to buy something from A&F (Abercrombie & Fitch) Actually might be nothing I really want but I know that everything is for the "smaller" person.

I hope I get down to at least a large. When I lost weight years ago (118 pounds) at 200 pounds I was wearing medium shirts and 34 inch waist pants.

good topic Karen -- and congratulation -- I didn't laugh -- I KNOW what you mean. Activities of daily living just keep getting easier for me too as the weight comes off.

emoticon That's great, Karen! I'm almost to the point of loving non-scale successes better!

I've gotten off both my BP meds, am down 3 sizes in clothing, can fit in chairs without overflowing them, and have much more energy! And I'm working on being able to kneel - something I've not been able to do for years!

Karen --

I can understand the struggle! Your post brought a smile to my face. I can picture the look on your face when you figured out you didn't have to struggle any more!!

Do a happy dance! You earned it!

Isn't it funny how something that's so small to others is so important and meaningful to us. I actually wrote a blog the day I realized that I could stand in the shower, and shave my legs without pulling a muscle, or falling over. emoticon emoticon emoticon

what are your biggest or most memerable none scale success?

what are the next none scale successes you are looking forward to most?

my none scale moment i am looking forward to most is being able to go on the kids trampoline.i have just under 30lbs to go to do it as the trampoline only goes up to 220lbs but i assure i will do it and when i do i will also be posting it on a thread here.
