HerStrawberri's Journal, 11 July 2011

OMG! So I'm talking to my mom today to iron out plans for the weekend and she hits me with ' I think we all should go to the water park on Saturday'. UMMMMMmmmm that's a BIG HELL NO!! I tell her this and she tells me I'm being silly. Ok, yes I have lost 50 lbs but I'm still a big girl and I'm NOT getting my big butt on ANY water slides. I have never been to a water park even back in my skinnier days. So yeah, that is going to be my saturday. yay me. =(

I definitely understand not wanting to get into a bathing suit - been avoiding mine for a couple years now.

Ack! I also understand you completely! I only have been swimming with close friends in a private setting but no way could anyone get me into a water park! At least not with my current weight.

:) I'm the complete opposite. Though I'm heavy it's the one thing I don't mind showing off because I love the water. Most water parks have a lazy river so just stick on that and remember no one really cares.

I am like diddoh, I love the water and will sacrafice the showing of skin for it.. if you do end up going maybe wear a t-shirt. My BFF is big and this is how she stays comfortable at the pool, you can always just lounge around in the lazy river and no one is going to pay attention to you I promise, and if they do who cares you know what you are doing!

This may be awful but when I go to waterparks & feel self-conscious I can always look around & see someone who looks worse than me, lol. If they can walk around & not care about what they look like & enjoy themselves, why shouldn't I? It's about enjoying life, & if you're not going to venture farther out of your comfort zone to do that after 50 lbs, when will you? Do it girl!!

I have to admit I do the same as Kat when I start feeling self-conscious about the way I look.

You should definitely do it! I went swimming while on vacation and, at first, I was really uncomfortable. But it was a super hot day and once I got in the water, I realized it was totally worth it. Plus, I had the bonus on wearing last year's swimsuit (which used to be tight). It felt so good realize it is time to buy a new swimsuit because my old one is too big!

when I do go to a pool or waterpark, I use a swimsuit paired with a T_shirt and exercise shorts. But partly because I'm a red-head and burn so easily...

Thank you everyone for your words of encouragement. I have been in bed all day with a migraine so I have had lots of time to think about this...and you all are right. I AM going to go and so what if I'm large. I have lost 50 lbs! They might now that but I do and I'm very proud of that. and you are so right Kat......I need to get out there and ENJOY myself and I LOVE the water. I'm gonna float around on the lazy river and enjoy the sun and my neice and nephew. I have to confront my anxiety head on sometimes. And this is one of those times. ( granted I will prob take one of my anxiety pills before we go...LOL) But I'm actually looking forward to it. Thank you again everyone! Angie I'm glad you're back from vaca!
