I'm at 7 1/2 weeks out, I have not weighed myself this week, but yesterday, I tried on a XL tshirt, I started off in a 3 XL and that XL FIT!!!!! I was so excited. It could fit a little looser, but I was still able to not only get in it and wore it!!!! My shorts are fitting far more comfortably!
The one thing I am going to start really working hard on, is my arms. The upper arms are so flappy, yes I wrote flappy...they flap in the wind! It's loose skin and it's time to work hard to try to get things the best I can.

I'm walking farther than ever and in shorter amounts of time, even when I don't feel like it, I'm going out and walking. Yesterday was a VERY long day. I watched my friends 2 kids as always and helped another friend with her grandkids, I was up at 6:30 to start my day and fell in bed around 1 AM. We had a full day of childcare, then both of my big boys had baseball games, and they both had personally great games! One game started at 6:30 and the other started at 8:15. My husband after working 11-5 went to K.C. I to pick up friends of his who were flying back from leave/vacation, so he got home about 15 or so minutes after we got home from the games. We both just say dazed and exhausted, as I told the boys to take the dogs for a walk, I back tracked and told them to just get them on their leashes, and my husband and I instead went for a walk. It was only one mile, but hey at least I got that mile in.
So I have not shared update pictures. I made a collage, to show my progress. I can see it the most in my face and chin(s). :) Progress has been made.
