Dignity? Check!

I celebrated the glorious weather this past weekend at my parent's house on the lake where I went swimming for the first time this summer.

And before I did, I performed the annual check that has become my own time-honored summertime ritual, as much a part of the season as grilled steaks and black fly bites.

I performed the bikini check.

Check out the rest of my Shooting For Hip column over at Better Than A PlayDate. I even posted a picture - honest to blog!

You look fantastic! And way to go, wearing that bikini and feeling confident about it. Maybe I had get my big ole butt back into one. It's not really that big, and I could pull it off. You might have inspired me.

You look great! There's no reason you shouldn't wear one, good for you!

You are a rockstar for embracing the body you have inside of obsessing over its flaws (and I certainly can't see any!!). Keep wearing that bikini and embracing your awesome body image. More women (including myself) could learn from you.

Ugh.. I can't type today. "Inside" should be "instead." Sorry!

After I had my daughter I had no idea what a bikini even was...sad huh?

Tranny Head said...

I salute your bravery! I, too, wear a bikini - though with some more arse coverage than I had at 18!

Beth said...

I just posted about bikini wearing too. I feel like my body looks better in a bikini too, if only the stretch marks weren't there :)

Thanks for this reminder. I mean, when I'm 60 I'm gonna look back at this 30-something body and think it was so awesome.

I need to appreciate it a bit more . . . and not with chocolate chip mint ice cream, either.

I just had to buy a new swimsuit this week. It's a humbling experience no matter what size you where.

Honest to blog is an excellent phrase. I must incorporate it into my everyday vocabulary.
