Went shopping with mum today. Needed to get a new bathing suit as I am going to start doing laps at the local pool as an additional method to slimming down.
For the first time ever I stood in the women's section trying on bathing suits and realizing that I needed smaller that the smallest size they had there (don't get too excited, the smallest was a 16, though I am still happy). I ventured only momentarily into the other smaller selection but even though they fit me in the stomach and below...the tops only covered half of each breast. I finally did find a middle group that I was comfortable with, including a skirted bottom suit to hide the worst part of my legs and butt :)
Something very cool I found in the mens section just happens to be a pair of swim trunks with Captain Morgan on them! Mom got them for me as I was very excited over them.
Went to a party last Saturday that was....interesting. SCA friends mostly at a friend's house who just happened to have a pool. So I can now chalk up skinny dipping on my life's list of crazy things done. It was a lot of fun swimming around with all the girls in the dark, comparing breast size, and giggling about other things. Still very shy about my body, though it was pretty liberating.
