 I have ten that just won't leave so I know your pain! I'm breastfeeding so I don't know if that has anything to do with it, like my body just really wanting to hang on to some extra weight or what.

If you just drop to 1000 cals for the week making sure you journal food so as to not go over you'll at least lose two. Add exercise and it might be more.

They'll be gone by tomorrow if this keeps up....

....I had a piece of flatbread pizza and the gluten in the crust is wreaking havoc on my digestive system.  I've been in the bathroom WAY too many times today!

Have you taken pictures of your midsection in the past? I've been doing it every few weeks and it helps to look back at them too see the difference.

I've also noticed that my jeans are fitting differently around my middle as well. I'm losing the fat in all the vanity areas now, like the extra padding on my hips toward my back (muffintop area I suppose) and on the side of my abs, so it's just in the middle now that I have fat. Slow but it is improving.

I haven't taken pics, but I have noticed a big difference.  I used to look as if I were permanently 6 months pregnant (my baby is 13 yrs old) and now my abdomen is flat on the sides and I just have this loose skin (5 babies, 3 of them large do that to ya) with fat under it.

Jeans are definitely fitting differently!  I don't have the money for a whole new wardrobe, so I just wear baggy clothes for the most part.  Today I put on capris that I haven't worn in several years...they fit, although a bit loose!  I also put on one of my 13 yr old DD's sweaters  and it fits beautifully!  I sure don't look like I'm 6 months preggo anymore!
