I don't hate my swimsuit body!

Friday, May 07, 2010

Revelation for today: I may not be bikini-ready, but I'm damn sure going to throw on a suit and enjoy myself. In the past, I've let my insecurities about my body stop me from doing things like going to the beach or swimming at a pool party. That stops today. The reality is that most people are way too busy worrying about their own imperfections to care what I look like in a swimsuit. Not to mention that if they do care and think bad things about me, then they're not the kind of people who matter to me anyway. I swim like a fish, and it's good for me, so f**k all those people who don't like the way I look. ;) I'm going to stuff my fat butt in my swimsuit and enjoy the sun!

    Great attitude! I am slowly coming around to that way of thinking myself.

    Wonderful attitude! And your dead on -- everyone is too wrapped up in their own self image to notice anyone else. It's just how are brains are wired.

Enjoy the water --- Let the mermaid within be free! Woo Hoo!!

    Excellent attitude. You're exactly right - no one cares.
What drove that lesson home for me was years ago (when I was in good shape) going to a nude beach. There were all sorts of people there - people in all sorts of shapes. And no one cared what anybody looked like.

And, as you point out, as for anyone who might actually be investing their emotions in what others think, to hell with them. They're shallow people.

Life's far too brief to miss the fun because someone else might not like it.
Enjoy yourself. It's your life not theirs.

    I love that attitude!!! I just bought a new swimsuit and though I'm very self conscious, I'm going to wear it anyway. Besides, once I get in the water, no one will be able to see anything below my shoulders ;)
