But I'm happy I reached my goal pretty darn close! SO can tell a difference already. I was trying on dresses for him yesterday, and he mentioned that it's obvious in my back-fat area.. you know, where it folds if you're overweight? I can see it too I also went shopping with him yesterday, and grabbed my usual size L at H&M for this super cute dress. It was loose-ish around the mid-section, and would require a belt to make it really cinch my waist. So SO grabbed a M for me It fit so much better around the waist area, but it was wayyyyy too short, so I bought the L anyway. It did give me a rather large confidence boost!!
