This is it...

Today is the Official Day 1 of my journey. I know I blogged about starting last week- but I was really waiting til after the weekend o' many barbecues to pass by. I certainly indulged this weekend- I won't even talk about it. It wasn't pretty (and yet- it wasn't terrible either- it contained no deep fried foods or fast food!) but it's out of my system and I'm ready to begin. My goal is to lose 25-30 lbs by September when we go to my parents' lake house. Unfortunately, I'll have to wear a bathing suit before that. I'm on the hunt for something that won't look too bad. I've gotten a bunch of recommendations for Land's End suits. Here are my choices from the website:

Unfortunately, there's no such thing as a suit that hides the hips, butt and thighs (except for those skirted suits or dress suits- but, to be honest, I feel like those just call attentions to the fact that I'm heavy. Like, I may as well scream "Look at me! I can't wear a cute bathing suit so instead I just buy the one with the most fabric!").

The ones I posted above are pretty expensive- around $120 per suit. I suppose that's the going rate- but since my last bathing suits came from Old Navy and Marshalls- $120 is ALOT! 

I'll let you know what I end up with!

Thanks for reading!

  1. HA! I bought a suit this year for the first time with a skirt. Love it. It's actually the first time I've felt comfortable enough to wear a bathing suit in public without a t-shirt over me. Give it a try... ;D


Thanks for sharing with me!
