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 !!!
