“It’s #transformationtuesday! Me at/near my heaviest and *clearly* unhappy with wearing a swimsuit, vs me yesterday in my bikini at the gym! I neverrrrrr would’ve worn a bikini at my heaviest.

I was a tankini girl because, much as I wanted to wear a one-piece (and I really wanted to, for more stomach coverage), I could never find one that was long enough for my body (carrying a lot of weight in your torso can do that!). So I was stuck with unflattering tankinis.  I’m not going to lie – I’m still a bit self conscious in my bikini. I know all my stretch marks are on full display.

I know my stomach is not perfect and flat and smooth, and it won’t be without surgery. But I’m SO much happier and more confident now, even with my loose jiggly bits, than I was back then!”
