A bathing suit compliment! Yeah! Another way to measure success
Friday, June 28, 2013
wow, I finally lost another pound today, and down 38 total. almost to my goal of under 200 for fourth of july, freedom from the 2's and we had a kid party yesterday at the Y. they sent out an email saying the Y wanted adults to help in the pool with the kids and I waited and waited for a reply all from the other parents and of course who wanted to go in the pool/ in a bathing suit? I decided,I will do it! I did it. I shaved (ha!) found my bathing suit and owned it, my daughter was so happy she was like mom, wow! I get to swim with you. I want my daughter to know we should live our life and I was determined not to mention I don't want to put on a swim suit or anything like that and just put it on and be like, let's go! She told me she loved my bathing suit (my daughter) and I said thanks! No negative talk here. We had a great time and when we were in the showers getting changed back one of the moms said- wow you look so great! this is while I was standing there soaking wet in my bathing suit! I was so happy! There is one thing to say you look great when you are covered in a flattering outfit to cover the flaws but this compliment was a woo hoo for me and I am so thankful to her for saying this. I did thank her and I am so glad I made the decision to live life, be thankful for my body, wherever I am in my journey and go for it! I need to lead by example with my kids and I am proud of where I am and where I am going and where I have been because afterall I am who I am from what I have learned and I am moving on.... into the 100s and enjoying the journey! Thanks for listening!!!! WOO HOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
