Do you ever wonder what an overweight thirty something mum of one wears on her first beach holiday since losing her waistline somewhere in the bottom of a mound of takeaway boxes?? Yeah – me too!!
To say I’m embarrassed of my shape nowadays is a bit of a whopper! I am MIGHTY self-conscious of where I’ve got to but I know it’s all just down to my eating habits so I can’t sit and complain!
Mind you – since joining Lifetreeworld, I’ve been enjoying far too many cookies and treats after doing the ‘add to basket’ trick more times than one person really should!
I think perhaps I need to focus more on the chopped tomatoes and rice for a while…..maybe indefinitely!!
Time to do something about it before our holiday arrives……. Oh wait!! That’s less than a week away!!!
The horror and excitement when I realised this, was profound! The thought of exposing more skin than my usual limit of ankles and wrists sends my crisp eating hand into a quaver …. Ooops my bad …. quiver!! But it’s going to happen so I NEED to get some sort of ‘swimwear’ organised…. And PRONTO…. So, off I trot, (with my freshly painted holiday tootsies), to the mega sale at good old BHS!
I selected an array of beautifully coloured tankinis! These magical inventions that mean I don’t have to share my tummy with the world ….(unless I feel like it….) but am able to feel like a young mum and not a plus size mum trying to hide my body!! They’re simply inGENIUS! Who’d have thought it?
So clearly, I have bought four in different colours, (plus a swim suit incase of a super self-conscious day), plus another from good old Asda! I feel, prepared.
So, I WILL be showing more than just my Kankles and wrists …. And I WILL be in that pool making a fool of myself!! This is our first family holiday abroad and my husband is about to embark on a new future as he leaves his job and I will be the Belle of the poolside in my pretty ‘I’m a big girl but right now I don’t care’ tankini’s…….
