Bikini Ready (Anonymous)

October 19, 2008

My son was born when I was 37 and 9 months later I wore a bikini for the first time (photo to follow shortly). My whole life I’ve been self conscious of everything: my stretch marks when I was a teen, the fact that being short-waisted with small boobs just isn’t terribly flattering, those (sometimes imaginary) 5 pounds I’ve needed to lose …

Even after running a marathon, I never really liked my body, but now here I am, brand new body post baby and I love it. My tummy is a bit soft (especially if I bend over), but I have that typical woman’s figure I’ve never had: hips, a waist, and boobs that actually fill a bikini top.

Stretch marks and soft tummy be damned! Oh, and I have one more thing that makes me look awesome in a bikini: the cutest 11 month old in the world on my hip! :) Nobody even looks at me when Mr. Blue-eyed Congeniality is in the room.

We are heading to Hawaii after Thanksgiving….I’ve never walked on a beach in a bikini before (only reclined after covering “my fat thighs” just so with a towel). I got my bikini wax scheduled….look out Kauai, here I come!
