I've Lost...

I seem to have lost the 9+ month old child that I was carrying around. I was looking in the mirror today and saw my side profile. I don't look pregnant anymore. Yes, there is still fat there, but I am looking more close to "normal." I've wanted for all my life to be "normal" size wise, and it feels weird that day by day I am starting to get there. It is hard to wrap my head around the fact that I am not as huge as an elephant anymore. I wish I had been taking side profile pictures all along to notice the change in that area. I know having excess weight in the stomach area is the most dangerous place to have it.

Yes, keep taking side photos. When I look at some of mine, I see such a bigger difference than the front or back views. I took some in my birthday suit within a few weeks of surgery and in mid-November and the difference is amazing. I look like a deflated balloon!
