I agree about the suits from Lands' End. I like that they have separates and tops with underwires! It always amazes me when shopping for a suit that the plus sizes rarely had an underwire. I wouldn't wear that little of support under a shirt and a sweater, why would I wear it as a bathing suit for all the world to see! I am also a fan of the skirted bottoms. Helps to cover the dimples!!!! I love summer and being at the pool. I may not be the thinnest girl there but I am going to be swimming over 40 pounds lighter than I did last summer. That's something to celebrate!

CruiseCat, is that your new haircut? It looks great! I assumed from your other avatar that you had short hair, I didn't realize it was pulled back.

School nurse was in to check BP and pulse today. It's part of our Commit to be Fit program. My BP was terrific! I'm psyched to keep on keeping on!

Holy Cow OMW, I can hear the enthusiam in your words! I've been stuck for awhile it seems. Maybe next week I will see another pound. I've been eating well but slacking on my exercise. I need a kick in the pants.

Spring activities and family responsibilities are taking up my time and I am not making my exercise a priority. I try to do lots of little things during the day, parking far away, volunteering for physical errands, taking stairs, etc. However, I know I am not getting the cardio I need.

Time to commit....action, action, action. Maybe if I keep repeating that word tomorrow. Good night all...

I'm going to look at the Land's End bathing suits and hope I find something. Here at home it's not an issue cause I hang at the pool nekkid. But I am going to Myrtle Beach at the end of April and I'm sure the kids will want to go to the beach a few times and nekkid is not an option.

OnMyWay - Thank you, yes that is my new hair cut. I'm thinking as I lose the weight I will go shorter.

Pony, those little changes add up and make a difference. Just think, would you have taken the stairs or the elevator 6 months ago? You'll get back on track! Pony, what do you think of letting this thread go and just starting to post in the 40 something monthly thread. There are a lot of regular posters there and lots of great support. Just a thought. We are still in this together, I count on you!

Good luck suit shopping CruiseCat. Let us know what you find. I agree, nekkid is not an option at Myrtle Beach. You must have a very private yard to be able to skinny dip at home! Sounds like vacation everyday!

Have a good weekend.

Thanks OMW! The 40 something thread sounds good to me...I'll start posting there instead of checking in here. Thanks for all your support and for getting me off to a great start. I'll still be cheering for you and together we will continue this journey!!
Cruise Cat...your haircut looks nice! For fun I took a picture of my face, placed it on an internet hairstyle site and tried on different computer hairstyles about one month ago. Then the kids got in on the action and started putting mustaches on me. We all laughed way too hard for comfort. I'm planning on trying a new style this fall.
