To celebrate my sister's 1 year wedding anniversary, me & the hubby, her & her hubby & my other sister & bf are all going to the Poconos for 2 days 08/21 & 08/22. The have an indoor & outdoor pool and I have not been swimming in 5 years. I don't even have a bathing suit! But, I love, love, love the one that Miranda wore in Sex in the City and found this one that's pretty similar:

Oh, and way cheaper. (hers was $300!! :dizzy:) And I totally just bought it. I have exactly 11 days to drop a few more pounds and tone up some before I squeeze my tushy into it. I'm hoping it gets here before the end of the week, so I'll keep you girls posted on how it looks once it gets on me (yeah, I don't exactly look like that chick in the photo. yet! :devil:)

Wish me luck! :hug:

Way to go - good luck and my your fat cells self destruct!
Cute suit by the way. I normally end up being forced into a swimming suit every summer for the love of my kids...I have a nice sarrong that I wear over the old hips, tushie, thigh area...for my sake and the sake of others! :D

Thank you guys so much! :hug: Now, I'm actually looking forward to trying it on, instead of being terrified by the thought of it. Isn't it funny how in a few months, your thinking can change so much? :)

Well, ladies, the suit is a success! It looks good on in my house. I'm still a little freaked out by the prospect of wearing it outside in broad daylight :o , but I'm hoping that after a few cocktails by the pool, I'll be ok ;) Thanks for all the support. You guys are the best.

Tracy - congrats on the 10lbs lost. And don't worry. You'll be swimming again in no time :hug:
