Beach season is just around the corner, which means one thing for anyone heading to a beach or pool at some point: it’s time to put on a bathing suit. No matter what your weight is, what you look like, or where you come from, putting on a swimsuit, especially a bikini, can be a little intimidating. Wearing a bikini is essentially the same thing as walking around in your underwear, and wearing a one-piece or tankini isn’t much different.
It's so hard when you're trying to be healthier not to feel like it's to "fix" yourself because you were broken or ugly or wrong. No. You're simply choosing to be different, to be healthier, to live longer, to be stronger. It does NOT mean you've been failing up until that point.
