Non Scale Victories from Camp

I am back from camp – a bit tanner, a bit more tired and with a whole lot of bug bites (seriously it is ridiculous).  Camp food was a challenge but on the whole I would say that I navigated it pretty well.  We’ll see for sure what the scale says on Wednesday.  However I do want to point out some Non-Scale Victories I experienced this week.  Some are camp related victories and others are victories of my weight loss that I discovered being at camp.  So here we go.

*  I could walk up the big hills at camp without getting winded.  I could even keep up with other leaders and kids and still carry on a conversation.

*  I could use a sleeping bag in the manner in which it was intended (zipped with me inside) rather than as a comforter.

* I could say no to mediocre desserts

* I did not eat any treats from the canteen – I did buy some for my campers but ate nothing myself.

* I got my 10,000 steps in 4 of my 7 days, and was close on the rest.

* My shorts were too big in the waist (my hips is another story).

* I did not suffer from much back pain sleeping on camp bunks.

* The food tasted processed to me and not all that good.

* I drove into town twice for zero point fruits to eat instead of getting treats or snacks.

* I turned down a S’more and had cherries instead.

* I played games (9 square, gaga, capture the flag) with the kids and while I was not fast I was at least more able to keep up.

* I did my best to fill up on veggies.

* I skipped a few really “dangerous” meals and grabbed something healthier in town instead.

* I kept drinking water all week long.

* I tracked EVERYTHING I ate.

So no matter what the scale says I feel like a did well this week.  I certainly didn’t give myself permission to slack or not track.  I had one meal (at the camp directors house – aka a homemade meal) that I went a bit overboard on, but I tracked it and applied my weekly points to it.  All in all, it was a win.

But I am glad to be home.

  1. Nice…I think we are always headed in the right direction when we can see beyond the bigger prize (weight loss and health) but see how all the hard work is shaping our behaviors and choices which ultimately brng us to that big prize but we have to learn those other things first.

    I am started a fitness challenge/clean eating challenge next week with my hubby…I am so nervous but so pumped.

    Woo Hoo!! Good for you!! This was a great reminder to us all that what the scale says is not the end all and be all and doesn’t have to show a loss to prove how much we’ve gained 🙂

    Thanks!!
    Bridgette

  3. Those are significant, and stellar, NSV’s. You should feel so proud! This could be the forward momentum you need to aide in your journey.

    I hope the scale is exceptionally good to you on Wednesday!

  4. Well done!! It is a real accomplishment when you can finally say no to food that is right under your nose. I absolutely think that you should be celebrating this week!

  5. You should be VERY proud of yourself!! Resisting the temptation to cave in for a weekend is quite the accomplishment! Go you!!!!!

  6. Thanks for sharing your progress! I thought that was so cool!!

    The biggest thing that helped me lose weight was just keeping a healthy attitude about myself. I assumed I was clean, controlled, happy, and healthy! And then I never really had to say NO to anything ever again…I just wanted what was best for my body. Easiest way to do it! Keep it up!
