Bathing Suit Season Sucks

It's no surprise to those that know me, that I hate my body. It's not my body's fault though, it's mine for not taking care of it. I always have had what I would consider a weight issue. I only weighed less than what my drivers license said ONCE -- for a day! Last time I had my license renewed though, I didn't fudge the number at all. I figured at my age, what was the point?

Now though, I'd kill to weigh what it says on my drivers license. Where did this extra weight come from in the last few years?

I got motivated to get rid of the weight this weekend though. We went to DH's daughter's (DHD) house for a BBQ and because she lives 60 miles east of us, the weather is drastically hotter there -- over 100 degrees yesterday! All pride went out the window when his daughter loaned me a bathing suit & I got into her pool. I was just too hot not to! And if wearing a bathing suit in front of the other guests wasn't enough motivation, I got a whammy when I was looking through DHD's wedding album for the first time. When she got married, DH was married to Juuuuuulie (that's how I say her name). I'd never seen a photo of her, but there she was...all over the wedding album. All 100 perfect pounds of her & her perfectly toned legs & arms. It definitely made me wonder what DH saw in me (I think I weighed 100 pounds in 9th grade!)

So why do I care? After all, DH chose me over Juuuuulie. Maybe me losing weight isn't for him. I know I'm heavier now than I've been in 10 years, so it's time to get off my lazy butt & get back into shape. Especially since I have our 2 week cruise & DisneyWorld vacation coming up in less than 11 weeks. Wish me luck & lots of willpower!!

A cruise is the best motivation... you'll do great!

I think you look great, so it's either really good photography or you have nothing to worry about!
