Today while working around the house - I typically wear PJ's, but couldn't find any clean ones... so I decided to try something that I haven't tried since the surgery. I put on a pair of shorts... and they FIT!! They are a pair of shorts that I bought 2 years ago when I was doing a program called Medifast, and had lost 40 pounds... I'm about 4 pounds shy of that loss this time, but such a fabulous feeling! And I've done it in a little under 7 weeks - instead of the 5 months that it took me last time!
