I was in the change room at the local pool and was putting on my old swimsuit and working up a sweat trying to pull it up! I had to wriggle and ease the spandex up inch by inch and when I was finished I realized that I could hardly breathe!
It must have shrunk!
So I HAD to go swimsuit shopping...
not my favourite thing to do, but we are off to the cottage,
and they have two lovely pools and I like to swim laps,
so needs must!
Do you believe in miracles?
This is what a size 14 swimsuit looks like on the hanger...
I am not proud of the fact that I have gone up a size.
The weight gain is all in my midsection where I once had a waist!
Simon Chang swimsuit.
This one is also a size 14 but it looks smaller because it is black.
I like the mesh detail at the top and at the leg holes.
I purchased two swimsuits because I don't like putting a wet bathing suit on and I may be swimming a couple of times each day.
I walk everyday and some days I walk farther than others...
I do watch what I eat but I could always cut down on the carbs.
My husband loves pasta so I make it once a week and I adore potatoes.
My thyroid is sluggish
(but that's no excuse)
I have taken medication for hypothyroidism since I gave birth
to our daughter 40 years ago.
Loving life and feeling gratitude is part of my daily routine.
Every day is a gift and it never fails to offer up something of beauty.
So in the whole scheme of things
is a size larger worth getting all bent out of shape over?
I am doing what I can to stay active and healthy.
Thank you for popping by and reading The Humble Bungalow Blog today.
It's sunny here at the cottage and we plan to go swimming today.
With two suits to choose from I have to make a decision which one to wear...
I hope you are having a great weekend.
Until next time
