When a old bathing suit becomes new again! Exciting

Saturday, May 03, 2014

We live on the river so I have had many bathing suites in all shapes and sizes over the years. I however was basically the same size prior to my 2014 car accident. I kept all these suits unless they were ruined for some reason as you never know when you will have company and need it. I have loaned them to family over the years who they fit. Well today, Da ta de DA! I fit into the smallest size I own. Even the suites I wore last summer are way too big! I had to buy some small bottoms but the top of one tankini still fit. I actually am going to have to buy some new ones. The best fitting one piece suits will either be for wearing under shorts as I am 56 and not 30. They have very high cut legs but my husband said you can wear that when it's just us on the boat (The leopard did look good). Two will be yard work bathing suits with shorts. They are just faded but still fit good with good elasticity. Whoo Hoo! Exciting. I have some clothing boxes to go through again now.

House work, yard work, boat launching, and may be a ride this race weekend. Plans are to stick close to home for the most part. Go Jeff Gorden is my cry, my husbands will be Go Jr. Same owner but we root for different drivers. It's always fun and looking forward to Sundays race which we will watch from home this year but have many happy memories of attending the races. we quit attending when I had my car accident in 2004. Maybe next year we will get tickets again. We both have good health and are active due to weight loss!

Have a great day everyone!!!!!

    Guess we'll both be in front of the TV for a few hours tomorrow afternoon. I'm a Stewart-Haas fan, but I've been watching NASCAR since Jr's Daddy was racing, and I've had a soft spot for Jeff since he was the Rainbow Warrior.
    I bought a new one piece and a new pair of bottoms with a couple of tankini tops when I went to the Dominican in February. None of my old ones fit. That is definitely a good feeling.
    Have a great weekend.

    emoticon the smallest one!!! Look at you go, girl!!! That's just so fantastic!!! You're doing amazing!!!

    I went to the Wal-Mart today, and I bought several bathing suits. I no longer have to shop in the BIG GIRL department for them. I got some bottoms with a little skirt, 2 different colors, and then 3 different color tops that come down midway between my waist and hips. This is the first time in my life that I've been able to get a regular size swimsuit, and I'm over the moon about it! All I can say is, "Thanks God, that "D" and I are in the smallest swimsuits in the closet and no longer 5X in the store!"

    Be blessed,
