When I gained weight I got rid of almost everything from when I was young and thin. For some reason though I held onto this one Lucky Brand bikini. I loved the colors and the style. I had pipe dreams that I would fit into it again "someday." A year ago I pulled the bikini out to go meet some friends at a pool party. I took a picture of myself in it to see how it looked and I think that was the moment I realized how overweight I had become. Until then, I honestly thought I could wear this bikini with no problems. I put the bikini in a drawer, put on my one piece and went to the pool. About eight months ago I pulled the bikini bottoms back out and tried them on. Still didn't fit. This morning I tried it on again. I still wouldn't wear it in public but I'm starting to feel like wearing this bathing suit again might not be a pipe dream after all. I have made really amazing progress in the last year. My hope is that this time next year I'll be able to take a final picture of me in the bikini and have it fit just exactly right. For those of you following along this is after a 30 pound loss and a 6% body fat loss.
Also, if you are on a similar journey to me share your link, I would love to follow along and watch others reach their goals like I am.
