Actually, I bought two since they were so cheap at Ross (Speedos for $11). It's the first time in the last few years since these drastic hormonal changes (and yes, overeating) brought on the weight that I've even thought of swimming. I want to find an aquafit class. (Plus, it's a bit ridiculous to live in San Diego and not go to the beach!) I bought my size and it took me another day to muster the courage to try them on. I've never fully come to grips with the "OMG, how did I get this big after being trim all of my life?" I'm just starting to get back looking into the mirror again. (smiling) Okay, so I try on the first one. To my amazement, not as bad as I thought. Yes, a lot more work is needed and yes, it will be a bit horrifying to get out in public with extra pounds on me, but you know, not as awful as I'd imagined. The second suit was a keeper as well. I am still tempted to wear shorts over them. (smiling) But this first step is a big one for me.
