We made our first excursion to the pool yesterday .. perfect day for it, as it was hot as hell.
Now no one would mistake me for a super model, but what a difference from last year.
Last year, our first trip to the pool coincided with 1 day into my weight loss journey. My extra large swimsuit barely fit (the bottoms are boy shorts with snaps), I was busting out of it. This year that bathing suit would literally fall off me, so I went out a bought a similar style in size Large, which was plenty roomy (but Medium would be too small).
I am not where I want to be, but heading in the right direction ....

- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.
