My old bathing suit is a size 24... I bought it two summers ago. I LOVED it but yah... was not doing the job any more...

so to celebrate the SMASHING of my plateau I bought a new bathing suit today... a tankini in an xl!!!!

It's so nice to pay $26 for a suit instead of over 50 every time!

so yah... pictures....

I've come a LONG way from a size 32!

and I edited to add a picture of me just starting at 377 pounds :)

Awesome Mama. I am totally freakin jealous that your "girls" have not failed you! ;)

01-11-2010, 11:04 AM
You look beautiful! WTG!! I love that the suit shows off your tatoos. I noticed in your pictures that you had gotten those since your journey began. I love them!

01-11-2010, 11:21 AM
Love the suit, but I love the smile you're trying to contain but failing at even more! :D Awesome pic!

01-11-2010, 11:44 AM
You look amazing.

01-11-2010, 11:51 AM
What an amazing journey you have been on. You looked so defeated before...and now sparkling and confident...like you have a happy secret...
Thank you for sharing !

01-11-2010, 01:07 PM
:carrot: You look fabulous!!!!! I'm so excited for you!!!! :carrot:

01-11-2010, 02:04 PM
I actually got my tattoo's BEFORE I started on my journey :) They are much smaller now... lol!!!

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I was at the pool with my family yesterday and my husband kept staring at me. So did a lot of other men (well staring mostly at my chest! lol!!!)

and the girls? They HAVE failed me... sigh. However... I can make them look REALLY good in a bra or a swimsuit like this ;)

01-11-2010, 04:01 PM
That is so cute Tammy! Gosh your legs looks way better than mine :lol: I'm jealous!

01-11-2010, 04:34 PM

(Why do I feel like I'm saying this everytime you post? ;))

You look terrific. Great bathing suite! Now we just need to make sure you can swoosh your hips as you walk.

01-11-2010, 06:14 PM
I agree with what's already been said - it's your smile and sparkling eyes that I noticed first!! You do look fantastic in the suit :cheer2: :carrot:
