Test Run of a Swim Suit

For many years now you wouldn't find me caught dead in a swimsuit.  There were several people that would always get on me to put one on and I never would.  I even had myself convinced I really didn't want to swim so why would I need one!  Then you have a really good friend say to you "You know if you felt good about your weight you'd be in one".  YUP that stung for sometime until I started my weight loss journey and knew she was very right.

We have a swim party planned for the boys and their classmates next Saturday but we just found out Rick's schedule has changed so our party has been moved up to this Saturday.  Which means I must get in a suit!  YIKES, I did find 2 really cute ones at Old Navy on clearance (who would have thunk that) for $9 each!!  So I now am braving a swimsuit, well that is with a cover up but still there is a suit on under there.  I'm moving my way there!  I probably will never post a pic of me in a bath-suit here, but I can do the cover up pic :).

So currently I'm down 103.2 lbs, I'm not going to make my goal of 113.8 by my birthday next Sunday but man I can't complain after a 15 months being were I am right now. ( I had to update Friday AM, I'm down 104lbs woo hoo!, 9.8lbs until goal)

Hope you all have a great weekend!

  10. You look awesome Alexis! And I know how you feel about swimsuits. I haven't bought one since middle school. Rich's family tried to convince me I should get one last summer to swim and I told them I'd get a wet suit before a swimsuit. ;-)
