I think the ruffles really make a difference, don't you?
This picture oh so perfectly sums up my shopping experience yesterday!

I went bathing suit shopping...

I have been so looking forward to spring and spend more time outside without a chill in the air...yet I in no way, shape, or form have been looking forward to the attire that is necessary during these warmer months.

Don't get me wrong...I have come a long way in these last 9 months...well really 30 months since my first born arrived.  Out of the past 30 months, I have either been pregnant or breastfeeding for all but 2...2 my friends!  For the last 3 summers, I have been pregnant.  It has been okay to be huge and wear whatever was comfortable at the was okay to let me belly hang out!  Ya...not so okay now.

Like I said...I have come a long way in these last 9 months...I have lost 27 lbs since August....but standing in the dressing room yesterday reminded me very quickly that I have a long way left to go.  

I just long to feel comfortable in my skin.  I don't care the number on the scale...I just want to feel comfortable!

Yesterday, I bought a bathing suit with ruffles...that is not quite my comfort zone.  Let the hard work begin! Again!

I had this come to Jesus with myself this weekend when I saw my reflection in a building window. Bring on the ruffles!
