I love the beach and it hurts my heart to think about how many years I did go because I was embarrassed to be seen in a bathing suit. Then I decided I had wasted enough time not doing something I love and pulled up my big girl panties and bought a 3X bathing suit and went. Was I still embarrassed – yes a bit. Was I glad I went – words can’t express how it felt to sit in a beach chair and dig my toes into the sand. Realized what other people thought of my was not my concern.
Please do what you love – even if… you are not where you want to be yet! You deserve it. And you can enjoy those things while working on getting healthier!
When I am in Dallas, one of my bunny friends is taking me kayaking and can’t wait. For so many years, I would not have fit into one. Now I can wear my knee length shorts and will not worry about my wrinkly knees from losing weight. Instead focused on making memories with friends and living in the moment.
What is something you love to do in the summer?
