She wore an itsy-bitsy, teenie-weenie yellow polka dot...

Today I bought myself a gift. Something wild, something I would have NEVER bought myself a year ago, let alone paid 100 bucks for)

Today, I bought myself a Victoria's Secret bathing suit!
(This photo is the new swimsuit, mine will be black. Unfortunately, NOT ME modeling it.)

A few months ago I went to the store determined to buy myself a bikini. I wouldn't wear it of course- nobody would want to see that! But I would hang it up as reinforcement. Motivation.

When I got to the store I chickened out. I decided I couldn't bring myself to buying something I might never wear. So I bought a plate instead, go figure. A small divided plate that I used to trick myself into eating smaller portions. 

Needless to say now that I have lost 20 pounds since last January, it's time to buy myself a bathing suit. Last summer's is very loose and UGLY as sin. (Seriously! What was I thinking when I bought that???) So when I saw the Victoria Secret coupon come across my email I thought "Why not?"  I didnt get a bikini, I opted for a more modest 1 piece. But I am really happy about it. I just hope it fits!

I am starting to get really excited about 130 by 30 goal... I just need to get back on track a bit. This week I am recommitting and my goal is to concentrate on sticking to the WW guidelines. Even though I lost .8 last week, I have 5.2 pounds to make up by the May 5th to stay on track.

I will lose this weight, and one day I will buy that bikini. One Day.

Till next time, See ya lighter!


  1. That is so cool! I should do that...those Victorias Secret bathing suits are very high quality and are made to make you look good! I'm sure you will love it! I too need a new bathing suit but I'm dreading that whole "shopping for a bathing suit" process. Good for you with your goal too, best of luck to you! =)

  2. I have a whole closet of "inspirational outfits" I've never fit into. Never again, This summer my whole wardrobe fits me and it feels great, and motivates me to look better. So congrats on making yourself feel special in this moment!

    And absolutely congrats on facing the firing squad on getting a suit!!!
