It’s bathing suit season, people. Also known as MY WORST NIGHTMARE.
Sorry for the theatrics but honestly? It’s how I feel. It seems like very few woman actually like they way they look in bathing suits. If you do? kudos to you, lady! I admire your confidence and also your lack of flab. I really really really want to find a nice bathing suit that makes me look skinny. Does this exist? For the past few years I have worn the same black one-piece. It’s flattering and comfortable but it doesn’t, um, remove the jiggle from my jello. Even though I have lost twenty pounds since I last wore a bathing suit I still don’t see a difference. Last year I purchased a cute pin-up style one-piece from Target. It was adorable. Yes, it kind of dug into my back fat but who’s looking at my back anyway? Last weekend we went swimming for the first time this year and I put on the suit that just last year I thought I looked kind of cute in and it was a DISASTER. I looked bad. My stomach looked huge and my back fat? Even fatter. How is this possible, you ask? How come I look worse even though I’m smaller than I was before? Fuck if I know but it was a total sucker punch to my self esteem. I resolved right then to get back on my diet and start working out again.
However, that is going to take awhile and I want results NOW!
Trying on bathing suits is one of the most demoralizing tasks I’ve ever done but if I want to find a ‘slimming’ bathing suit it must happen.
Maybe I’ll just wear a full wetsuit to the pool. Yeah, that’ll be sexy.
