The Plus Side of Looking Like Crap In a Bikini
WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS PICTURES OF STRETCHMARKS
If you are offended by my body instead of inspired, don't comment about it on this blog. You send me a nice little email instead. You know what? Don't even do that! Keep it to yourself! I feel fantastic about this, even if I don't pull off a bikini with the pizazz of a supermodel. So only nice comments, please. Don't rain on my parade. This is hard enough to do without fearing the backlash of folks.
So as Queen of the Blog, if you say something I don't like, I'm gonna delete your comment.
Just putting it out there. Moving on...
I wasn't even sure if I was going to post this or not.
I need one that has a gun rack attached to it, to carry the goods properly. And to find the bottoms. I wore them on Halloween, and now can't find them anywhere! So I went with the thickest pair of skivvies I own. It's not the end of the world, and if you have issues, please re-read the first paragraph of this post.
Nevertheless, I looked at the records, and according to what I have down, this is where a girl and her body can go with a 10 pound difference. That's the difference. (or so I am assuming, because I'm not weighing myself. If I'm at 168, it's a 10 pound spread.) The pic on the left was taken last March.
The right one I took tonight. Well, Matt took it. Cause he's a good sport.
But seriously- WOW. I didn't realize my body had changed so drastically!
I'm learning how to love my body again. I'm not going to sit here and play it all cool and confident.
I am still struggling to be positive about this post. I can see a difference. But when will I really feel that the difference is enough to be applauded by society? I don't know.
But when I put the picture from today next to the first swim suit picture I ever took...
(and I know, the sizes of the pics are kinda off compared to one another. Oh, well.)
Well, that right there makes me applaud myself. No matter who else is clapping.
Today, I am loving myself by saying "Charlie, you are doing better than you ever thought you could."
And THAT, my friends, is the plus side of looking like crap in a bikini.
