This food thing title is harder than I thought it would be, and we’re only the 8th… it’s going to be a rough month!
It’s been crazy hot & humid here. As I was walking around earlier I felt all gooey, it hate this much humidity! You do nothing and sweat buckets. Plus, in my case, you had to this some hot flashes, and you scream hot almost to the point of stopping, dropping and rolling!
Yesterday I did something that I TRULY hate. I so despise it. I’ve been avoiding it for a few years now, but I could no longer. I’ve tried considering other options, trying to find something on line, or just simply ignore it all together. But there’s this part of me who loves one thing, and for that to happen I need that thing I TRULY hate.
I’m talking about shopping for a bathing suit and swimming. Is there any worst feeling than to see proof that 1) you’re whiter than a slice of white bread; 2) you seriously need to do something about this weight thing; and 3) you also need a good wax job! Argh!
I’ve been lucky (I guess) since I didn’t have to buy a new suit for a few years, but last time I took my suit out I noticed that some part (in between the boobies) was disintegrating… no joke! I don’t know if it’s the chlorine or what, but I didn’t really any other choice, but to put my pride aside and go shopping for a friggin’ suit! Most shops around here are for the chicklets, not the round ol’ spring chickens… I knew of this shop, on the South Shore, that caters to full figure women. Yesterday I was at a client who happens to have moved right next door to that shop, so in I went. It’s an interesting concept, not cheap at all, but the service you get might be worth it. I’ve realised that I’m not “that” big… some of the women present were far more enveloped than I’ll ever be. I will not let myself get to that point, at least not for the next 20 years! Anyway, after trying at least 12 different models and discussing the options, I walked out with one, right of the rack “prêt à porter” – go figure! In every sense of that! Hee.
