I bought a bathing suit, but I am too affraid to wear it

Friday, May 27, 2011

I am going to LA June 11th-13th with my best friend. I am also going to Cancun mid July for my 5th year wedding anniversary. I really dont want to wear a one piece. I have been super duper hateful towards myself lately, especially my stomach. I really need to work on appreciating how hard I am working.
I have been busting my butt and I feel like nothing is happening.

I went to old navy today since they had a sale. I got a bathing suit , a 2 piece bathing suit. I got a skirt in a size 4. I mean its old navy so its not a REAL size 4, but still seeing that number on a piece of clothing that fits me, made me feel

Here are the pics of the suit
I just want my stomach to not look so scary. I don't know how to stop hating it... ugh.

and here is a proof of my awesome deal. By the way that skirt was on clearance, and today was 50% off clearance items. So I paid like $2.00 for it! I am such a smart shopper heheh

    You look awesome! If you are self concious - maybe a black sheer wrap skirt/ cover up? You know the short ones that tie on the side? Might be a sexy little extra that will make you more confident? Personally - if I had your bod I would be thrilled!

Enjoy your trip!

    Lady, you look jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Breathe in, believe in yourself, and you will rock that two-piece like it's 1969. Your tummy, your waist, your legs, you're hot.

It's just taking your head a little longer to catch up.

    you know, whenever i'm self conscious about wearing a bathing suit in public, by the time i get to the beach and see all the different shapes and sizes of people, i get over it.

you look great, though! :D

i think i got that same skirt off the clearance rack (in a different color) a couple months ago...also smaller than what i normally wear! score! it's comfy, too...and has pockets! amazing!

    I agree with everyone else - you look amazing! What you're seeing as still fat or imperfect or whatever you're poor brain is saying is actually definition! I see abs! Get out of your head as much as you can and enjoy yourself and all your accomplishments.

Don't get me wrong - I do know it's hard though. I bought a bathing suit last year and probably still won't wear it this year -- and it's one piece! Still, follow my advice,not my example. emoticon

    you're nuts! you look great , there's nothing wrong with your stomach! i used to think just like you when i weighed half of my actual weight. this year i bought a bathing suit and went to the pool , it was OK , I even liked how it looked , and it was a 2 pieces , i always thought 1 piece looks much worse than 2 on overweight people . so go there and have fun , you look really good , all the "bad"things are just in your head!

    You look Mahvalous darling! I used to think this way about 2 piece bathing suits when I was your age. I have pictures, that I wished I looked that way now!!! lol It's weird how we see ourselves in the mirror, I don't get that. Wear your suit, you look fine. If your worried about your stomach, concentrate on some pilates or yoga, to strengthen and tone. But again, you look great, and should enjoy your vacation!! MJ emoticon

    Way to go! Your stomach looks great...much better than lots of people who wear bikinis. The key as you said, though, is in YOU feeling amazing in it. You need to start some positive self-talk about what you LOVE about your body and IN that bikini to start! You can do it!!

    You look fabulous and that is my trouble spot too. What are you doing to work your core? I'm always looking for new ideas.

Oh and Victoria Secret is having a sale on some of their bikinis and I've had some good luck with them.

Sounds like you've got some fun plans coming up! You're going to look awesome rocking that suit in cancun!

    Hun... PLEASE take a step back and look at yourself as your old self. Look at how much you would have killed to look like this. I think your stomach is amazing. I love that even though you aren't at goal weight, your stomach is pretty flat and you have an amazing waist to hip ratio.

You look amazing. Trust us!

Wear that bikini with pride, sweetie! You have worked so very hard and look AMAZING! Maybe you should try and look in the mirror like a friend, instead of yourself. Would you say those unkind things to a friend who had worked so hard? What would you say to a friend wearing that bikini? If the answer is different than what you'd say to yourself, then you need to remember the 'friend' comments, take them to heart and be a better friend to yourself. *grin* Of course, we all need to be better friends to ourselves, don't we?
