So yesterday my husband reminded me that he had promised the kids he'd take them to the pool again. At $5 an adult and $1 per kid, it is some serious cheap fun that involves physical activity which is great! I said I'd get my bathing suit and towel and we could go. My husband was actually shocked and said I didn't have to if I didn't want to and I just told him I could care less how I looked in the bathing suit, I wanted to swim with my kids. Because quite honestly, I don't want to be that mom, you know that one that sits on the sidelines and cheers on their kids but doesn't actually participate because they are out of shape or uncomfortable in front of others.
When I went to find my swimsuit, I was shocked to find I own five! You know why, because everytime I went on vacation I would buy a new one thinking it would make me look slimmer than the last one... it never did though. I own a Miracle Suit that is anything besides a miracle but I did find my Land's End tankini with ruching in the front you know to disguise my tummy fat and it's black because black is slimming. Well I took a picture before we left for the pool. I am posting this picture to provide you with proof that black is neither slimming and the ruching does not disguise a darn thing!
