A Non-Scale Victory – My Week 6 Healthy Trucker Check-In

Hello, all.

I decided not to even weigh in this week. I wasn’t sure how I would feel if it hadn’t moved again, so I just decided to skip it this week.

It’s not all about the number on the scale anyway.There are so many other victories besides that number. We call them NSV’s – non-scale victories. I had a huge non-scale victory this week. I jogged for 2.25 miles without stopping. It’s a turtle jog for sure, but still, I didn’t stop!

I’ve decided I love running and I want to get really good at it. Here is a pic of me with my hubby, Aaron, and son, Brandon.

Tammy non-scale victory

We did our first and only 5k about a year and a half ago. I quickly slacked off and found I couldn’t run any more. I’ve been working on it a lot lately though, and am getting it back. I need to sign up for another 5k for more motivation.

Another non-scale victory — I took measurements and compared them with earlier ones and was real pleased! Another NSV — my rings are looser on me. But probably the best non-scale victory so far? My hubby is noticing changes and giving me lots of compliments, and that is a great feeling. 🙂

Anyway, my point here is to not get too wrapped up in what the scale says because it’s not the only indicator of being healthy.

Thanks for following along on my healthy trucker journey! Until next time,

About Tammy Croce

Hi! My name is Tammy, and I'm an over the road truck driver. My husband and I started team driving in January of 2006. We took a year off from July 2011 to July 2012, and have only recently gotten back into driving. I've battled with my weight my entire life. When I got back into driving, I gained some weight because I didn't make good food choices or set aside the time to exercise. But I've decided to change my ways, and this is my journey to becoming healthier through diet and exercise. I hope you'll join me for the ride!
