We had a great time at the pool yesterday although it was so hot that the water was very warm, so not quite refreshing but fun regardless.
I didn't realize until I got wet that my bathing suit is really baggy on me. I was afraid I was going to "flash" people because I was constantly adjusting it everytime I got out of the pool after going down the slide or jumping off the diving board. It was very baggy in the front as well as other areas that I hadn't noticed when I tried it on the other day, but being in the water really showed how loose it was.
I commented about it to my friend (the same friend who has not mentioned one word about me losing weight) and she told me it wasn't noticeable, but trust me, it was very noticeable because even my son commented on it. I knew it was not tight on me when I tried it on the other day and didn't fit close like it used to, but didn't expect it to be that loose in the water.
I really don't want to purchase another bathing suit yet because I have another one that was worn when I was at my lowest weight (129) and while I can get it on now, it's not very comfortable so I may be stuck with "baggy" versus "tighty", LOL. The older one is two sizes smaller than the one I wore yesterday so it may be a while before I can fit in it.
Bathing suits are so expensive and I hate to buy one just for this summer if I'm fitting into my older bathing suit next summer, so I'll maybe wear a shirt over it or something to avoid indecent exposure. :-)
I know we got a good bit of exercise yesterday because it was a constant climbing up the steps to the top of the slide, swimming to get out and over and over again so it felt great. I was so exhausted when we got back home and fell asleep pretty fast, but unfortunately woke up in the middle of the night and have been up ever since. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!
The kids have a party to go to today at our local library that is in honor of the end of the summer reading. The kids are excited because they get to play Guitar Hero, Wii Sports, etc. as well as other fun things the library has planned.

I feel like a brand new woman after a great night's sleep (finally). Yesterday had me so exhausted not only from the heat and high humidity (it was close to 100 degrees) but of course those female issues that exhaust you add to it.
A group of friends and their kids plan to go swimming at a public pool near me tomorrow if it doesn't rain. To prepare I tried on my bathing suit to make sure it still fit me. It does fit which is a relief in a way because I paid a lot of money for it, but it sure doesn't fit as closely as it used to which is wonderful since even with a bathing suit I can tell my body has changed since losing weight.
There's no chance of my bathing suit coming off, but the shorts I used to wear over it (I have serious saddlebag issues that I'm hoping will be the next area I start to lose as well as my tummy.) fell off me, so they were added to the bags of too baggy clothes that I took to Good Will yesterday.
I went through my closet again and got rid of more items that were too big, out-of-style, or just not very flattering. I deserve clothing that looks flattering to me and since we don't have a huge house, I also have to be picky about what I keep due to storage issues.
I always feel so "naked" in a bathing suit, no matter what my weight, but of course I feel better about it if I'm not looking like a beached whale, LOL. I'm so fair-complected and that on top of spider veins which show up big time on fair skin as well as being blindingly white that I probably reflect the sun and blind people, it's never something I'm comfortable with wearing in public.
My husband keeps encouraging me to look into spider vein removal, but I'm still holding off because I'm sure it's expensive and we have so many bills coming up including potential braces for my son as well as perhaps a new air conditioning unit.
I may do it eventually but I'm always one of those people who has to do research and get a lot of information on something before I make a decision. I hate walking into something completely clueless.

It was crazy hot here today, but despite that I had lots of errands to run including a few yard sales I went to that meant I was out in the hot & humid air constantly throughout the day.
The positive thing was that I got clothes for 25 cents each so I suppose it was worth all the sweat, LOL. I got my daughter a very nice winter coat for $2 and the people that were selling it were shocked that it had taken so long to sell since it was so nice and a great deal. I know it had to be the heat, most people don't want to buy winter clothes in the brutal hot sun, but I try to buy ahead a size so I'm not left having to pay full price for something the following season.
I may not find another great deal like that before winter and although it doesn't feel like it, it will be here eventually.
I'm so worn out though that I think I will just relax and read some of the cookbooks I got from the library recently and just chill out with a cool drink and the ceiling fan blowing on me.
