@diyboudoirr:  girl you just need to learn the art of illusion! i think you and i have the same EXACT body size and shape- i’m 5’6″ and 141 lbs- and i love my body!  sure, i know i can definitely tone a bit, but i know my body and know tricks to make the things i wear work for me.  as PPs have mentioned, lace is very forgiving!  slip on a pair of vicky’s lace panties (i find the thongs are the best) and you’ll be a changed woman!  the side-tie bikini bottoms (not string, thicker ones) are the way to go.  also, a tan does wonders to make you appear slimmer.

you’re on the right track with your workouts.. just focus on eating healthy and loving yourself!

@diyboudoirr:  It is so tough to get that image out of your head. I know I struggle with it. The thing that actually got through to me was watching a documentary on how they make some bikini calendar. I was shocked– those girls looked like me when they were walking around– pre-photoshop!

As far as weights– I do BodyPump (very similar to Body Step) and my weights are around yours. It really works! I also run and it helps. Let me see if I can get pre-and post working out shots to post.

@diyboudoirr:  you’re so welcome! It’s totally unnecessary to set those goals for yourself, and I am totally comfortable in my bathing suit. If you want to get to swimsuit model territory eventually, you can go for it! But you should totally feel good about yourself now and every step along the way

@diyboudoirr:  totally do jergens instead of actual sun!  i personally hate the smell of jergens so i use the target brand version (“up & up”)- it smells so much better 🙂

Just rock it and if you don’t have confidence, fake it! I am 5’0″ and wore a bikini when I was 150 lbs. My theory was always that there was someone else out there bigger than I am working a two piece with confidence so I can too!
