11/30/10 Inches lost!

Sunday I put on a pair of jeans I haven't worn since last winter. My newer pairs were in the wash, so I went 'closet shopping' and dug out a pair of LBs that were kinda tight a few months ago. They were so incredibly baggy and saggy, I couldn't believe it. I figured it was time to take some measurements, since I haven't been getting any scale love.

Well, I'm so glad I did, because since May, while I've only had a net loss of 5lbs, I've dropped a pants size and lost about 7 inches! Not too shabby!

Check it out: The first column is from October 2008, about a month after I had my daughter. I was about 18 months out from surgery at that time. The second column is from May, and then now. I'm thinking the return to exercise has a lot to do with my shrinkage!

It is such a great thing to take measurements. I wish I took mine more often. Congrats on clothes shopping in your very own closet. That really is the greatest feeling!
