No, this is not prior to the beach to fit into my swimsuit. Ha! This is trying to take off the weight FROM the summer and the beach. Since our return a few weeks ago, I have managed the gym almost everyday with a friend. Thank God for the friend. I am so externally motivated that it makes it easier to work out if I'm committed to meeting someone there. Plus, my kids love playing with her son. In two weeks, I lost 6 pounds. I know that's not much, but my clothes at least fit again and I don't hate looking at myself in the mirror anymore.
