I wore a swimsuit in public AND was comfortable :)

This is pretty off topic, but I'm happy about it so sharing :)

I gained almost 100lbs while on bedrest with my son (who is 2 today!!!) It's been such a struggle the last 2 years to try and get back to a comfortable size, and stay there. I'm 135lbs right now, but I got down to that for my wedding a year ago (may 3rd 2008) then was back up to ~155ish this winter, now I'm there again and hoping I can keep it off :)
 

I really like this swimsuit too because it's a 2 piece so it's not like one pieces of the same style that have only so much material in the middle and so will really show any flaws i your tummy (which mine is not nearly as flat as i would like, lol) so this suit seemed more forgiving :) I was also shocked that the 4/6 size was the one that fit me the best, I grabbed the 8/10 and it was much looser then I expected it to be, so I opted for the smaller size. In pants have been an 8 for so long I just wasn't expecting that, although in the last couple months the 8s are big on me and I've been wearing one pair of 7s and one pair of 6s more, but I have another pair of 6s that's WAY to skinny for me, so I didn't think a 4/6 size would even start to fit me, so that was... gradifying I guess is the word, to see my hard work paying off :)

 

So for the first time in a long time I wore a swim suit in public and was totally comfortable with how I looked. I know that I've still got a ways to go... but that's ok, it's nice to be comfortable in a swim suit again :) 
 

Here's some pics of me and my baby swiming :)












here's some of me back in the room after swiming (sorry the lighting sucked)

That's so great, Kay!  What a great accomplishment.  You look absolutely beautiful in your swim suit!

 

You guys look like you had tons of fun at the pool too.  How does Tristian do?  He looks so comfortable in the water.
