Swim Suit Season Stinks

I dont care what size i am , get to , become I wont like summer for one reason ... SWIM SUIT SEASON !!
Let this be a lesson to anyone out there that thinks " Your not "big" anymore be happy! Let me tell ya something... I was 110 pounds and was not comfortable with myself in a swim suite. I need a lap band for my head ! Because the weight might be off, but the apron around my stomach is still there and my wet tube socks I have for boobs are hanging around my shoulders still and I do not feel comfortable in a swim suite.
But here is my aggravation . Maybe its mean , not PC ... I dont know . I met a women in my new area who is larger. We were talking about my surgery . We went to the pool the other day . Because of my saggy thighs I had on board shorts with my swim suit top . Her response was " OH gawd take that off " or " You look great what do you have to worry about " Just because I am thinner now that I was a year ago MEANS i am comfortable with my body , comfortable in a swim suite .
But why do people assume that ? There are people at 250 pounds who are perfectly comfortable in a swim suite . And I think that is AWESOME . But guess what ?? That was NOT me .. There are people like ME who would not be caught at a pool for 3 yrs at 250 pounds because they were not comfortable with them selves at 250 pounds.

My point I guess. No matter what weight you are, you get to , you become keep in mind that there just might be someone who is uncomfortable !. Dont assume people are happy ( about their bodies) JUST BECAUSE they lost the weight.

Dont get me wrong.. I am happy with myself . But being happy with myself and putting on a swim suit in public are 2 totally different things !!!


  1. you're too funny Mindy!! Wet tube socks LMAO!!! I can totally relate to the tube socks and the whole body concious thing. I don't mind wearing a bathing suit. I love being by a pool, but I always wear something I'm comforable in and it usually consists of board shorts or one of those tankini's with the swim skirt on the bottom. You should wear what makes you feel comfortable.

  2. Just wear those kick-ass jeans everywhere. THEM ARE HAWT!! :D
