Y’all…yesterday, for the first time ever in my life, EVER, I tried on a bikini.
I didn’t hate it.
|Not what I look like in a bikini. But this is the suit.|
This was definitely another profound moment in this journey for me. I actually thought to myself that I might one day wear this in public. I don’t even like wearing the skirted one-piece suits in public! Now, I’m no Sports Illustrated model, not by a long shot. Most people might look at me in a bikini and think I look gross – and that’s cool. I think the general public consensus is that bikinis aren’t meant for everyone. But for someone that has spent the better part of her life being closer to 300lbs than an ideal weight and housed a giganto baby for 9 months…

I liked what I saw. I may not be beach-bikini ready – but I’m certainly backyard-in-my-pool ready.
So…you wanna see?
I will only post these photos if y’all can get me past 100 votes. That means I need you to share this in your circles on Twitter, Facebook, wherever you roam on the internet.
Here’s the catch: You have to log in to the BlogHer site. It should be as simple as logging in with your Facebook account. Total pain in the ass, right? Yeah, I know. And I wish I could give you better incentive than bikini photos…but look at it this way: you could walk away completely inspired or you could walk away with material for a terrific new internet meme at my expense. Its a toss up, a risk I’m willing to take.
To sweeten the pot, this is one of the few photos that exists of me in a swimsuit. Sexy, no?
