Motivation Monday


This weekend I went shopping for a new swimsuit. I'm pretty sure no matter how small I get, shopping for a new swimsuit will always rank high on my "I hate doing this" list. There's just something about getting into itty bitty clothes that display all of your imperfections...

But, I needed a smaller swimsuit this year. After trying several I found a hot pink one and kinda fell in love with it. 

I had to convince myself over and over to not cover up and just enjoy the sunshine on Saturday. I ended up really enjoying the entire day. 


What do you struggle with as you get smaller?

  2. You look CUTE!!! I still, at my very smallest ever, will not wear a bikini. Still so incredibly self conscious (part of me sees my body as huge, still) and just cannot get past 20 years of hiding my body as best as I could. The bikini is a step too far for me that I can't seem to do!!

  6. You look awesome!!! I've actually been on the hunt for a cute high waisted bikini and of course they are either for teeny folks or plus size. I swear there's nothing for folks in the middle so I guess I'm stuck in my boring one piece...LOL! But I guess for me now my biggest concern is my butt! I swear as I get older it just refuses to go into hiding -_-

  8. You know I think for me right now, I just struggle with embracing my size right now. I don't know how long it is going to take for me to get where I want to be. When my husband and I first met, I hated to even go to a pool. I would always where a pair of shorts and a shirt over my swimsuit. Then finally I got rid of the shorts. I then found that absolutely loved to swim, and I enjoyed using swimming as a form of exercise. Finally, I just decided I didn't care what anybody that. I finally wore the swimsuit without a coverup. You look wonderful in your bathing suit. All your hard work is paying off :)

  10. I've gone from being morbidly obese to being a pound away from "overweight" per BMI charts. I can wear regular size clothes, and that feels amazing. I'm at a lower weight than I have been for 18 or 19 years! My weight loss has been pretty quick (but healthy). It was really a thrill.

    Now as I get closer to a regular weight, the rate of loss has changed. I have to get used to that and set other goals. I also find myself having more expectations. I think now that I am in a more normal weight range, I start to notice imperfections. I look down when I'm wearing shorts and think about how my inner thighs are flabby, or the abodominal fat I want to lose. I know I look so much better than I used to -- hey, I'm wearing SHORTS --, but there is that other voice, too. I think I just need to manage that and use it for motivation. : )

    Right now I am 181. I'm setting mini goals. If I get to 157, I will have lost 100 pounds, which would be pretty rocking!
