Just Keep Swimming
So I resigned myself to the fact I'd have to shop out of the catalog one last year (hopefully) for a swim gown. I found this cute one that had an adjustable shirt on it that was form fitting and looked great on the model. I found a 40% off coupon for OneStopPlus.com (OSPCOUPON16. I have no clue how long that is good for) so I was all proud of myself. I woke up this morning in a cold sweat when I realized "hey dipwad, you don't HAVE the same body as the model! You have an inner tube and a big gut in the way and you'll be wearing a skin tight minidress!" Panic set in and I called to see if I could cancel it and order something else. I did...the same friggin' empire waisted gown I've been getting for years depending on what size I was. Well I did get one that has gathers in between the boobs so I don't have that beautiful uniboob effect. So there's a plus. But it was still disappointing that I had to go to that old standby even if I was forced to get it in aquamarine over black which will either be really flattering or I'll look like cotton candy on a stick.
It's that weird place I'm in where even though I've lost like 180 lbs, I still have a long way to go and nothing is a better reminder of that than lycra.
Have a great weekend all!
