Yep, that's me in my bathing suit. I wasn't going to post these pictures because I was embarrassed but then I decided that I have been honest and shared everything about my weight loss journey so far. So why change that now.
This is what I look like in a bathing suit at 183 pounds. I know some of you may be thinking that I don't look good enough to be posting this picture on the Internet but to tell you the truth I am very proud of the way I look. I know I don't look perfect and I still have a lot of work ahead of me but I have worked so hard to get to where I am and I am very proud of myself.
Don't get me wrong. I am not saying look how great I look. I am just saying that I have come a long way and I just have to keep reminding myself of that. If I don't remind myself of this daily then I just get discouraged because I am not at the weight that I want to be.
You are probably wondering why I would post a picture of myself in a bathing suit on my blog. Yes, I am a little crazy but I really wanted to do it to show others that you don't need to be ashamed of your body just because it isn't as "perfect" as the one's in the magazines. We are all different shapes and sizes and there is nothing wrong with that.
P.S. One good thing that happened last week was that when I put my bathing suit on to go swimming it was to big to wear. I ended up having to wear the one that I had in a smaller size. It's not my favorite suit (not enough support) but I was so excited about the other one being to big that I didn't really care.
