The last time I wore a two-piece bikini, when I wasn’t I pregnant (cause really, how cute does a pregnant lady look in a two-piece bikini) was back in 2001? That sounds about right. That means I was 22 years old and I still didn’t have the body I wanted, but I was content. Even then, my bikini was more like a sports bra and short combination. Since then I’ve always worn bikini bottoms with a tank top.
Yesterday I bought a bikini top. I got home and tried it on and for some reason it just didn’t look right. It does look better now than it would have 9 months ago, but it just didn’t look like “me”. Once I’m in better shape and slimmer, will I feel more comfortable in a bikini? I suspect not and maybe I will always feel uncomfortable.
Anyway, tomorrow morning I plan on taking a picture in my new bikini top. Just so that I can stare at the picture and think about how awkward I look. hehe… kidding… tomorrow is a big day.. the day I turn 33 years old. I’m feeling good about my health and my shape and I know it’s only going to improve, so I really want to capture a snapshot of my starting point.
