I'm so glad I'm over it, and I wish more women could be too!
This year I've lost a little weight, but I am still very over weight and I've dreaded bathing suit season. But as a mom I feel like eventually you just have to get over it and take your kid out to have fun in the summer and thankfully there are better options for over weight mom's than in the past. This year I finally just kind of embraced that this is my body right now and I was able to find a bathing suit that doesn't make me want to run and hide. The last few years I was only willing to put on a bathing suit two or three times and it really got in the way of our families summer fun but this year it has been a lot more.
Tomorrow is my son's 6th birthday and we are celebrating at the lake and some mom's have called to say 'I'm wearing Capri's and I'm not getting in the water.' I'm not judging them because I"ve been there but I wish I knew what to say to help them get to the place I am plus I picked a place with a lot of life guards. Granted it isn't like I am frolicking around in my suit, as soon as I get back to my towel I usually have my sarong wrapped around my big butt, but at least I'm getting in the water and having fun with my son.
How about you ladies? Anyone able to over come this year and get back in the water?
