It's taken a very long time and I'm still a ways away from my weight loss goal, but this weekend while on vacation I said screw it and wore a bikini. I know I'm on my way to my goals, but at the end of the day I think to myself if I hate my body, then it's just going to wear me down. My body can doamazing things and it gave me my beautiful baby girl so why should I hate it right? Anyways just thought I would share to all the others mommies out there to just remember to not hate hate bodies because think of what it can do :)

 Ya know, I didn't start really losing weight, and keeping it off untill I started really loving myself. Our bodies are pretty amazing. I am amazed every day I am able to get up and get going. Knowing that there are so many out there who can't.

Yay!!  I'm still a ways from my goal, but I have decided that this is my year for a bikini.  It's not super low cut or anything, but I have worked hard to get to where I am, and I am proud of it.

Celebrate your body, mama!  =)

That's awesome!!! I love seeing people celebrating and loving their bodies. I'm not at a bikini level (dang stretchmarks) but I've been rocking shorter shorts and dresses, which I've never done before. I'm just now starting to think I look good so why not show it off?

My 10 year old told me my stretch marks look like flames. I told her it was because I was on fire. :) She said they look kinda cool............ Love her!

Good for U I've been working my butt out too and I said I was going to Rock a cute swim suit this year no black but I still think I'm too big😥
Everyone around me says I'm nuts And that have a cute sharp but I jus don't feel 100%.

I'm not 100% by any means, but I've worked hard to get to where I am, and I've seen much less fit women in bikinis, so I say, if they can wear one, so can I!  I've grown more and more comfortable with my body between weight loss and age.  I still have loose skin, so that's less than ideal, but oh well, right?  If I can't do it now, when can I?
