Oh, for the old days........

     I am sure you have seen these pictures.  But, whether you have or whether you haven't, it matters not.  What matters is that I used to look more like this.

     I say more like this because I used to be skinny.  I don't mean the Barbie face.  No one ever said I should enter a beauty contest or anything like that, but I could wear a two piece.   I could wear a 3/4 or a 5/6.  Of course, I was not happy with my body then.  Are we ever happy with our bodies?


     But, I would give anything to go back to those days when I wasn't ashamed to wear a two-piece swimsuit.  Now, I am ashamed just to get in a bathing suit.  Because, now, I look more like this............. (scroll down)















     THIS!

     This is all I can think about right now because I have to put on a bathing suit today.  I'll explain more tomorrow night or Wednesday.  For now, just feel sorry for me.  Think about me all this evening and all day tomorrow when I have to walk around feeling exactly like that fat Barbie.  
     And, just so you know, it's my own fault.  I take full responsibility.  I am an addict.  I can't say no to Swedish Fish, Sour Patch kids, ice cream, cakes, doughnuts and the like.  
     When I get home, I think I need to enroll in a 12 step program.

I feel your pain. I am on week 2 of weight watchers the first week I lost four pounds a record high for me this week a big fat 0. I could scream!!! I did good too, so I thought. Good luck with the swimsuit. By the way I have never seen you but from your pictures you look pretty dang good in my book.

Good luck
Amy

You are going to be fine!! Probably everyone else is too concerned with how THEY look to notice how you look in your bathing suit. Wear some heels and everyone will be staring at your amazing calf muscles and nothing else! =)

Besides, you'll always be the first Barbie to me!

You are cracking me up! Where on earth did you find 'fat' Barbie?

Girl...you are adorable...Have fun in that swimsuit!

Want to feel some sympathy, but can't. I have NEVER been able to wear a 2-piece. Now I just look for suits with a skirt and try to convince myself that it is better to be modest. But really, if I was anything smaller than a 10, I would sooooo flaunt it (and repent later)!
Anyway- Have fun!

Oh my. I am laughing. You don't look like fat Barbie, I assure you. Why the swimsuit?
