When I first started this process in early 2009, I couldn't truly believe I would be as successful as I have been, or would have lost these 105(ish) pounds. I could not picture myself thin, I could not imagine how I would look. I knew my body would probably not look ideal when I got to the weight I wanted to, but I still dreamt of having a bikini body for summer 2010. In some ways I've completely surpassed my goals - my weight and size in most clothes makes me pretty darn happy. The bikini body - well I guess that's up for debate. I have two bikinis now. I don't feel ready to wear them around the world at large, but I am hoping that I can just get over it, whether on my trip to BC this week or some day in my backyard. I decided to take some pics last night, and here they are. This is what my body looks like at 165.
Not bad. A weird tummy. The underwire top is definitely a good thing. It's hard that most people who never weighed more than 165's bodies would look better than mine... But if I'd always been thin I probably would have been really bitchy. Or bitchier. HAH.
You'll all be glad to know the sunburn is faded, that I was wearing SPF 30! It was just SO hot with the dome open at the baseball game!
So hope seeing a really body isn't too traumatizing after seeing Catherine's amazing one! Haha. Love you guys!
