Weekend Quote: Who Looks Worse?

11 Comments 1737 views

This is a special Memorial Day Weekend Quote in honor of summer and our most dreaded *cough* I mean, FAVORITE time of year…

Bathing suit season.

*insert dun dun duuun music here*

Before the madness of the conference hit me, Mehgann left this comment on my Getting Out of My Own Way post.

A very wise woman I work with once said to me
“Who looks worse?  The fat lady in the swimsuit, or the weirdo on the beach all covered in clothes?”  
…and she was totally right.  :)

LOVE IT!

Try not to hide yourself this summer… celebrate who you are and enjoy every moment. There will only be one summer 2011 lets take advantage of it!

Ok, it’s time for me to get back to my Fun Family Memorial Day plans! ;)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I’m a wierdo! LOL But only because , if I go to the beach, sometimes I just don’t feel like slathering on the sunscreen. I can burn on a winter day if the snow is too bright :)

    Very good advice! Someone also once said to me that everyone else is so caught up in their own insecurities that they probably won’t notice you anyway.

    I love it! I swallowed my self consciousness yesterday and wore a bikini to the pool for the first time in over 6 years. I rocked it, felt good and am so glad I just did it. Even though I wanted to keep my tank top and shorts on… Enjoy your weekend! We are doing NOTHING too!

    Hi,
    I began weight watchers in April 2010 and on weight watchers I lost 53 pounds. I went from 216 to 163 (size 18-20 to a size 6-10 depending on the cloths). The problem I have is that I am only 5’1. I work out 5-6 days a week doing the elliptical for an hour 3 days a week and running 5 miles 3 days a week and lifting weights 3 days a week as well. I stopped counting points in April. I just got tired of counting points and I dont want to count for the rest of my life. I find that I can’t lose anymore weight but I have been maintaining my weight since April. I find myself going back and fourth with trying to lose the last bit of weight (goal 150). I feel like I exercise a lot and the only way I will lose more is if I doing something drastic. I look smaller than what I actually weigh. Most people think I already weigh 150 or a little less. I find myself obsessing over the scale and at times I want to throw it away but I feel I will gain weight back if I stop using it. I am so scared of gaining the weight back that I feel trapped. Any advice?

    This made me cry. I wish I could not hide. I just can’t bring myself to be comfortable in my skin no matter how much I try and try. Here’s to getting better at it, at least.
