I didn't do measurements for my first month and a half mostly because I didn't want to include that initial bloat reduction that comes when you start losing weight. Now that I'm down a bit, I figured I start monitoring inches lost as well as lbs.
Of course all the measurements are high, but NOT as high as they were in 2011 when I first started being serious about losing weight. So there's something.
We just babysit our friends' two young boys. I can say for certain that I do NOT want any more kids. I'm happy with my 3!
