    Hey everyone, do I fit in this group? Turning 40 this summer and I'm trying something new this time around: Not dieting and simply improving my relationship with food and exercise. Only rule for me at the moment is to log on MFP and count my calories. Feeling great so far !!!
    Looking for buddies !

    That sounds like a good, solid plan. I need to be more diligent about counting my calories and using the app methodically. (And, of course, making better choices!) Here's to us!

    Happy Monday all...hope you all had a great weekend. Spent mine at the pool watching my oldest in a swim tournament. Maybe I should take up swimming they all have so many muscles and can eat like horses!! Of course they are teenage boys...sooo...haha.

    Swimmers are so super fit it's such an amazing full body exercise. That's why everyone is so hungry after swimming!

    I was just buying bathing suits today. I had 2.5 hours this morning to get groceries and bathing suits. With our schools striking twice a week lately I have to make the most of my time. Next up.....curling

    I cry trying on bathing suits...so stressful. I just need to put on my big girl panties (bikini bottoms?) and deal with it !!!!

    You can do it! No one cares/notices... we are just too critical and hard on ourselves.....easier said than done!!
    Ive never been a summer/bathing suit fan....even when I was younger..of course, I want to knock myself out and wish as a teen and in my 20's I didn't give a *kitten* and ran around in a bikini all day ..LOL


    Chilly rainy here day in Jersey.....ran some errands...kids are older but still got them something small for vday :)

    Hope everyone is well!

    There are lots of tankinis this year at the store I like to shop at and they are like loose outer parts of them. So i got like this little crop top one that is loose so it hides a lot. Then lots of bottoms are high waisted although I don't like those I always feel fatter in them so I will pair this with some bottoms I have
    This is the top it is awesome https://www.lavieenrose.com/en/solid-crop-cami-bikini-top-black-150416

    I've got lots of barhings suits I was just pulling them out of my drawer as I looked for workout shorts haha. I usually get at least one new one per trip. Usually I'm playing in a pool with the boy or snorkelling So i like sportier ones for that so I don't feel like I'm falling out and I have a propensity to burn. ☹️

    That is super cute!! the suit I have right now (I only have one because I rarely get in the water) is pink and black and flowers and looks like an old gramma suit. Maybe that's why I never get in the water???

    I end up the second day wearing a t shirt over my bathing suit and being doused in aloe because no matter how careful I am i just can't avoid it. It's annoying

    It's very forgiving hides the flaws.
    I can't swim and water splashing in my face scares me but I will brave the surf and a pool cause it's boring just laying on a beach or beside a pool hahah. I need to branch out to colours I guess

    Hi y’all! I’m 47 and I am from TN. Looking for motivated friends. I had a very active lifestyle up until about 5 years ago and in the past 4 I managed to reach an all time “worst shape of my life” status. But....since Jan I have started to get my old self back. I’m already down almost 20 lbs. I am active. Eating right. My blood pressure is normal again and I already feel amazing! Feel free to add me!

    THIS is the swimming suit I will be wearing soon (the 3mm version)

    kuw22wriyjz4.png

    I've never had a suit like this; I usually use a drysuit or sometimes my 7mm suit that has a built-in hood and 5mm vest. At 3mm, even this one might be "too warm" for 80-degree water. But I won't get cold! And it will protect most of my body from jelly stings. I might even add some thin gloves, like those nitrile-coated cotton ones. I hate getting stung.
