Perspective

Every year, beginning around March, I begin to spazz over the weight I haven’t been able to shed no matter how hard I try. I spazz because bathing suit weather is around the corner. Normally, there is a cushion involved because we don’t usually vacation until mid- to late August. This year we are going in late July.

AAAHHH!!!!

There is no time to do anything about my predicament. Oh well…..

We put a deposit on the place we are staying at and took a little spin around the area. What I saw made me forget about MY weight.

Did I actually see these particular women? No, but I might as well have. Oh dear God! What makes people think this is okay? Why should boobs spill out of your top? If you are NOT eighteen years old or perky, put that shit away!!!

Does anyone really want to see a woman (or man–you fellas are not immune to this behavior!) lift all of those rolls of fat to apply sunscreen? When you turn around, we DON’T want to see where the good Lord split you!

Hubs and I saw a woman with her four kids crossing the street, looking pretty close to  this. We looked at each other and simultaneously said “Holy Shit!” I almost felt the bile rise in my throat.

I don’t think I will be worried about how I look in a swimsuit this year. Mine will cover my ass. I will not ‘accidently’ pop a titty out of the top. And I will look at these other women and say  “Damn! I look pretty fuckin’ hot compared to her!”

    I think I look like the woman in the far right in the pink suit. Reality is that I am 5’8″ tall and weigh 165 and am a size 12 right now.
    30 pounds to lose on my diet – the pressure to be thin is excruciating – but being as fat as one of those ladies would make me suicidal.

    LovingAnnie-If you think that you look like that, then the reality is that you are probably much thinner. We tend to see ourselves as heavier. I have about thirty pounds to lose too!

    To be shaped like some of these people and hide yourself in shame should be depressing so I guess they have chosen the option to live their life publicly which is good in a way but, god, something must be done for their own sake, unless that’s the way they are happy. Their health is paying a high price though.
    I’m sure you’re smoking hot Metal Mom hehe

    Regardless of what I actually look like, I feel like pink bathing suit woman — which is why I don’t wear bikinis anymore.

    I’m sure you’ll look hot in your suit, babe. xo

    See, there’s always somebody else worse off then you. I don’t think it’s comfortable being almost naked in front of thousands of folks. I still don’t like being in a bathing suit.
