So I’m not getting married and going on my honeymoon until October, but FI’s sister is getting married in less than a month in Mexico and I am NOT vacation body ready. I have wanted to lose about 25 pounds before the trip and am still about 9 pounds off.
I tried on the two bathing suits I bought to take on this trip and sat down and cried because of how bad I look. FI says my tummy flab and leg fat are not that bad and to just wear the suits, but I think I would be WAY too self concious in front of his crazy bodied, athletic sisters.
I don’t really know what this post is about except my depression that I a. Didn’t meet my goal, and b. now have to go by 2 more new bathing suits, with money I don’t have, so that I don;t have to walk around with a bag on my head 🙁

i feel your pain. not as bad as having athletic inlaws to make you feel like a whale, but i booked a cruise back a year ago for this past feb, and then got engaged in september. it was supposed to be my “motivation” to lose my last 20 pounds. yeahhhhh still was the same weight really when feb rolled around. so now im hard core for my wedding.
just go and be happy. people will talk no matter what, its how you carry yourself that matters. just try and use this for incentive to look your best at YOUR wedding and say “oh well” for this one. hard to do i know, but i still had fun on my cruise, even WITH the fattie pictures on the beach LOL (i just dont have those posted in my album!!!!)

First of all, 9 pounds away is awesome! You’ve lost 16 POUNDS!!! That’s HUGE!
Second of all, I totally get not wanting to wear a swimsuit around super athletic people. One of my besties was a professional cheerleader. Eek.
So, even though you’re going on vacation in a month, if you aren’t comfortable with the swimsuits you have, buy only one! And buy a really sweet, gorgeous one piece that makes you look rockin’.
These one-pieces are AWESOME and about $40. My mom buys from Spiegel (go ahead and laugh!) and they have the CUTEST swimwear, plus most of them have body spanx Shape FX stuff to suck you in. And they’re really adorable
This one is sexy but cute and flattering!
A one piece can be hot =]

That is a pretty hot one piece…I had not checked out Spiegel. I will have to look at that site! Thanks!

I agree, there are some pretty hot one pieces out there but if you dont find one you can always wear a sexy sarong that will cover the areas you are concerned about.

I get how disappointing not getting to your goal is. And do not give up just because you’ve realized you won’t be exactly where you’d like to be by that time. I think losing 16lbs is amazing. So congrats on that. Chances are you’re being really hard on yourself. We tend to see these flaws and imperfections that others wouldn’t notice at all. I always watch this stupid channel at the gym on the flat screens that shows a bunch of videos with hot chicks on the beach or just in a bikini for no apparent reason and I’m like, “Come on! I can’t look like that!”, grrrrrr. But then I realize I still can look good, for me.
Anyway, I’d rock that one piece up there! Its like a scandalous mini skirt… only its just a hot bathing suit. There are options!
