Non-scale victories are a way to measure your progress aside from stepping on a scale. These are the things that you hoped and dreamed about before surgery that you could only do with difficulty or could no longer do at all.
It may be simple things like putting on a seat belt in your car, getting down to play on the floor with your children or grandchildren. It can be imaging what it would be like to ride on a roller coaster again or go on your dream vacation with family and friends.
For others, it is the prospect of improving or resolving health problems, such as diabetes, knee or hip pain, or improving blood pressure.
Who you are is not solely measured by the number on your scale. Not all progress is seen in that one number and it may not go down as quickly or as far as you wish it would. In those moments, it is important to have HOPE in what you have accomplish, not dwelling one point, such as your weight, alone.
Sometimes, we look to bariatric surgery because something pushed us to consider that option.
