I should have taken my measurements when I started and I know that would help me but I was just in the mind set that I didn't want to know. I know it sounds silly but I hang on sometimes to being disappointed in myself for gaining all the weight back from last time.
I am still noticing little things though. I went to a restaurant with my dad a few weeks ago and I fit into the booth alot better than I used to. Normally it would hurt my stomach while I sat there but I actually had some wiggle room!! It was nice!
