But 64.6 (as of today) lbs later, something as silly as my weight isn’t going to stop me from having a kick ass swimsuit. Like this one from Mod Cloth:
Fruity Suity One Piece, Plus Size
Besides, I can’t continue my new-found love of swimming without one and I’m definitely going to need a new one soon. And can we also talk about how awesome it is that so many stores realize that us curvy girls want cute sexy swimwear too and none of that frilly little skirt shit? I have a Macy’s gift card and am so totally tempted to use it on this:
Rialto Over the Shoulder One Piece
The really weird thing, though, is that I’m actually looking at bikinis. Not for now or for the time being — I mean, hello, for all of my confidence now I haven’t gone craycray — but as the reward for myself when I hit 175. If Sissy and I do end up going to Florida once I hit my goal weight, I’m totally going to need a cute bathing suit.
I mean, hello how cute is this one from Pin Up Girl clothing:
Although this one is also uber adorable:
Really, though, the bikini thing is weirding me out and I’m thisclose to starting a Pinterest board to keep track of all the ones I find. I sorta figure that by the time I get down to goal weight, I’ll be roundabout a size 10 maybe? Although I know exercise and toning will affect that. Recently I had to get rid of a pair of Torrid jeans that were several sizes too big even though they originally were purchased at the weight I am now. Inches, man. Crazy inches.
But, see, regardless of what size I get to, once I do get to goal weight (and I will, I don’t care how long it takes me), I’ll have lost a grand total of 151 lbs. That will be 48% of my starting weight. And you know what? I will freaking deserve a cute bikini at that point, amirite?
Love from the ashes,
