so today i went for a long bike ride, and made the trip in record time. my legs felt like jelly when i got home but it was really worth it. i've been slowly but steadily losing weight over the past 10 months (down 20 lbs, 10 more to go...), and i thought it was time to treat myself to a new bathing suit. also, i'm planning on going waterskiing with my parents on monday- the first time in about 10 years. egad. i have a cute swimsuit from last year, but it's a big fat-hiding suit with a swimskirt, and it's not really practical for waterskiing. so, off to the store i went. since we're poor, i hit the discount stores: target, marshalls and kohl's. sure i would be able to find something. ha. freaking. ha. i tried on no less than two dozen suits today and every single one of them made me feel like a fat disgusting slob. or it was cut to low in the front. or it was a low-cut halter top (hate 'em.). or, in the worst case scenario, it was all three! awesome! seriously, how hard is it to find a decent tankini and a belly-fat-hiding bottom without going broke? my next stop is land's end, but the thought of dishing out $100 on a bathing suit that may or may not fit me next season is not my idea of a good time. so the search continues. let me know where you've found cute suits. oh, also, i prefer tankinis because i have a long torso so buying a one-piece online is a pretty risky proposition. blurg.
