I haven't made much progress the last couple of weeks and was feeling slightly frustrated until It was almost 80 degrees here one day and I tried on a pair of shorts. These shorts fit all right in 2013 right before I got pregnant, but were a bit tight. I put them on this time anticipating having to take them off again because they would be too tight. No. They were looser than ever! It was such a victory. I thought after having the last baby there was no way I was ever going to recover, get back to my old clothes, or ever be in shape again. It works!
