Markers On My Journey

Back in August I was diagnosed with a health condition that, among other things, suppressed my metabolism. It explained why I was slowly gaining weight, and could not seem to lose any weight, no matter how little I ate or how much I exercised. I started on a medication that has kicked my metabolism back into gear.

It has been three months, and today I braved Kohl's for the first time since early August. I knew I had lost a bunch of weight, but I didn't know how that translated into sizes.

Pants: From a size 18 to a size 14!!!
Tops: From a size 2X to a size L sweater and XL top!

Woo Hoo and congratulations for me! No more shopping dread! And baby, next shopping trip (in January) there will be even less of me to love!
