For many years there was one rule that could not be broken. Nobody is seeing me in a bathing suit ever! Well when I joined the gym 5 years ago at 446 Lbs there was not a lot of exercises or machines I could work out on. There was certainly no getting down on the floor for some crunches because there was no guarantee I would be able to get back up. It only made sense that the pool was the place I belonged. My first few months I wore a regular one piece bathing suit with bike shorts underneath and a bra. The bike shorts and even the bathing suit didn’t hold up too well to swimming and soaking in the spa every day. I probably looked more conspicuos with my extra layers than if I had just dressed in a regular swimsuit.
The extra pounds really hated all that activity so I kept it up. I soon gave up on modesty and became the Naked Fat Chick in the hot tub. My signature move is the tsunami (Rusty’s favorite)!
I soon found the perfect bathing suit at Junonia and I have been wearing this style of bathing suit ever since. I even wear it with tights to workout with my trainer. The man has me looking at the world upside down so often that I got tired of my top flipping over my head. Now I can finish up with him and go straight to the pool for Aquafit with minimal fuss.
