The Trauma of Getting a New Bathing Suit !!!







This week my daughter and my son came to visit us.I love it when we can be all together !
It was a busy fast pace week.

We hung out together, we did BBQ's , they visited friends and we went shopping (of course), we did all sorts of things we would normally do together
.
I happen to mention that I would really enjoy going back to aqua fit classes like I use to.It feels so good to exercise in water,no pain in those stiff knees of mine.I use to go twice a week and somehow I got away from going.

BUT I needed a bathing suit and my favorite shop had them for half price this week..... well it was time to go and have a look see right!

OMG !!!

I only tried on 3, a two piece and the other 2 were one piece......
Here I am so proud of myself having lost 22 pounds , feeling better and svelter(is that a word?)

You realize really quickly that its a drop in the proverbial bucket..... I need to lose another 22 pounds....(I am working on it.... remember... the no carbs post...... I have the willpower to keep on.... its not easy but I am doing it)

Looking at oneself in a small room with a full length mirrors on each wall is humbling..... You see the thighs in all their glory.... you see your back....... and you see your behind..... I didn't know my trunk had so much junk..........

Parts of you that use to be North have moved South....
Which one to chose ?? so difficult...... no choice you must try on several to make up your mind, to find the right one that slenderizes and hides the most of your abundant womanly parts.... hehe...I know you know what I am talking about ... don't pretend you don't now...




I use to be 110 pounds soaking wet with a brick in my pocket like these ladies above but that my friends was a long long time ago.... pre baby days ago !
You know what I mean..... I know you do.......



Wish I could wear one that hid everything like this one..... but I would get laughed at... heck I would laugh too.... I love the bloomers... you know that reminds me I still have my old high school gym suit, it was red and had bloomers it was a one piece.. yup... was a size 6..... ohhhhh those days are soooo behind me...



Well I wanted to jump for joy when I found a half way decent one for my over abundant shape.
My daughter says it looks just fine, to me it looks a bit dated but it did hide the thunder thighs and that makes me happy.
It looks very much like this one ,same style !
Have you had a bathing suit reality check latetly??? Scary isin't it !!!!

I know exactly what you mean. I haven't even thought of a bathing suit in years. I am afraid the elastic is well shot in the one that still sits in the bottom of my drawer.

You are more brave than I am! I haven't worn a bathing suit in at least ten years. No plans to get one, either! :\ Sure I sit on a deck or beach chair once in awhile, but it's a big deal if I wear Bermuda-length shorts rather than long pants.... I might change my mind if I could have the one in the first image on the far right. Heck, it comes with an umbrella! ;)

Just too funny, and I love the pictures. It is a traumatizing experience to try on bathing suits!

This is the cutest post, and oh how I can relate to it. Small dressing rooms with mirrors surrounding our body..... Goodness....depressing for sure.

Your pictures are so cute.... the picture with the tiny waist makes me ill..... I'm jealous of course.

It's so good to hear that you had such a fun visit with your family.

What a cute post and I'm still laughing...I know exactly what you are talking about, because I'm there too. I like your suit and now you can get back to your water classes...you are inspiring me to get busy...hugs, Linda

Mountain Mama said...

I love your post!! I haven't bought a swim suit in years.
I never learned to swim myself but taught my children. The one you chose looks nice and the important thing is you can do that water exercise now. Good for you!

Brenda@Cozy Little House said...

I will not even entertain the thought of trying one on. Besides, every time I get in chlorine it manages to give this old menopausal broad a terrible infection. So that's my excuse!

I have 2 very similar suits in a drawer in my bedroom. They've never seen the light of day - even though the suits themselves are cute. You are way more brave than I am!

SmilingSally said...

You're braver than I am, Diane. I wouldn't even THINK about trying them on!

Hi there, just a comment from an
older lady who has the same problem
with swimsuits! Is it time we take
what makes us comfortable at the beach
or in the water, vs. what "society"
dictates we wear.
Check out the more "modest" version on "wholesome wear. com"..you may
laugh, but I'm considering getting
one. It reminds me of your pic of the
1920's suits...mm,vancouver, wa.
