So remember, I said AFTER the cruise...right? Well..it's after the cruise..time to get to it!

Previous, on Instagram (@mairzdotes) I posted my first before/after picture. Really not thinking I'd lost. To me...I'm 'only' about 20ish lbs from where I was almost 5 years ago. I guess I didn't really, realize HOW drastic that 20ish lbs was.
