Back in action...or at least a bathing suit

Now I know that some of you are going to say "Lyndsay, you looked like your old self again quickly after having a baby this year...yadda yadda." And though I agree that I have been happy with my physique for a while now, all you moms know that there is always some "tweaking" to be done under those layers of clothes. And EVERYONE loves a happy surprise in the figure

Here are few nice discoveries this month:
1. I went shopping with my parents only to happily discover that I was fitting into the size pants/jeans I wore before Finn came along (I haven't been real jean shopping since Finn was born--just every few months I check to see which of my old jeans fit again. My butt has been hanging on to a little extra fluff).
2. At my latest check-up I found out I am only 3 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight. I don't own a scale, so I never check. (I know where those other few pounds are hanging out, considering I am still nursing).
3. I have a totally presentable bathing suit body again! I mean, I am sure I could have gotten away with wearing one before, but you know how it is. I didn't exactly go swimming this summer because none of my existing bathing suits really fit properly and I didn't feel up to buying one. And now it's technically fall. Solution? Laundry and blogging in my bathing suit! :) Finn says I look great. And it only took 8 months to make the full reversal, ha!
