Default Three NSV's - I Needed Them!

Been for a fun swim with hubby and daughter today. Haven't taken her for ages and she's been asking so the rain was a sign to go do something indoors.
After swimming a few fast lengths I realised my costume I got at christmas is now getting too big (1) . Hubby laughed when I told him it's a size 20 and I'm now in a 16, and I was surprised it's too big
Usually I stay in the pool and do more lengths while they go on the water slide, but today I suddenly got an urge to go on myself. When I told my daughter her face lit up and she led the way to the slide. Going up those steps I was terrified, I haven't been on a water slide in probably about 10 years or more. I really thought I wasn't going to be able to go through with it, but something inside me knew I had to. I got about a third of the way down that slide before starting to enjoy myself, and once I got off I walked straight back down again for a second go! (2)
Finally on the way home we went to a charity/thrift store and I saw a lovely skirt. I haven't worn skirts except for special occasions in years because of my thighs rubbing together I went and tried this skirt on and it fit perfectly. I told hubby I'd no idea when I'd wear it and he said, anytime, you don't have to wait for the right occasion. So I bought the skirt and I'm going to wear it one day this next week, just because I can! (3)
I still feel down about the scale playing nasty games with me, but I'm not giving in, I will make sure I've got something positive to show for each day.

Great story. I bet you will find lots of places to wear the skirt. Sweet that you were able to do the waterslide with your daughter. I bet she loved that!
