The One Where I Put on My Swimsuit, Cont.

Earlier this week I wore a 2-piece bathing suit in public. It was the 2nd time in my life and the other time I was 17. Sports Illustrated won't be calling any time soon, but it's kinda a big deal for me. Pardon the blinding white on the mid-region. It hasn't seen much sun.

Hope everyone got to enjoy some fireworks tonight! I did.

Congrats on swimsuit confidence. It's one of those things that is going to tale me a long time. White or not, that mid section is looking fit.

Wow! Your skin looks amazing! That's my biggest fear that my skin won't tighten up. I have a bit of a pooch now but I know it'll go away eventually.

It's unreal how amazingly good you look. I can't stop staring. You look terrific. You're SUCH an inspiration. Wow! Wow! WOW!

This is something you didn't have to share with the World Wide Web, but I'm so happy you did. It's a good reminder of why I need to KEEP going. So I look as great as you some day!

You look fantastic!

I can totally relate. I think swimsuits are SO traumatizing on all fronts. I wore a two piece this weekend and felt cute... which is new.

End of this month I'm going on a cruise with 8 other people. I plan on wearing swimsuits so it's definitely making me focused on staying fit.

I'm currently trying to lose weight through healthier eating options with intuitive eating, while exercising with C25k and ChaLEAN extreme.

I am also a Christian, so I hope that you would be encouraged by the devos I post randomly as I read through the Bible.

Keep persevering. (Galatians 6:9)

I have ceased wondering how I look in my swimsuit. I love my body. Weird, right? I don't know what happened, but I know it's God. You are an inspiration. Don't forget that!

I clicked on the link where you first put on a swimsuit and you did a video log. Would you do another for who you are today? I liked them, every once in awhile. i want to see what how you sound now that you've accomplished so much. =)
