    Physically I'm at the lowest BF% in decades, so there's that. However, people had better have their sunglasses on, as I'm sure my neon-white skin is sure to blind a few folks.

    Since I went to Belize the end of January, and had my body on the beach - YEP!

    I plan to go to the beach and have family fun so we'll go with yes. HOWEVER, the bikini is an entirely different story.

    Yup, but with the weather we are having in Northern California recently, not likely any beach trips for a while... also not sure anybody wants to see me in a bikini - although It would be interesting to see Dwayne Johnson or Tracy Morgan try to pull it off. lol

    I'll probably never wear a bikini again. I was here on MFP before my 50th birthday & worked my *kitten* off . . .ok more like my belly. I rocked a bikini on my 50th. I was so proud of myself!

    Then DH walked up to me & handed me a cheeseburger & a pina colada. He congratulated me on achieving my goal (bikini with a flat(ish) stomach) but when he handed me the food he said "don't ever do this again. I want fat & happy not skinny & bitchy." I didn't think I was that bitchy. :s

    Anyway now, post Covid & all the stress baking I did, I'm overweight. Nothing fits & I'm miserable. I gave up my biggest calorie problem -- wine -- for dry January. Lost about 1-2 pounds. Now for Lent I have given up the other one -- sugared soda -- which is killing me. Oh, how I miss caffeine.

    DH & I joined the Y in February but haven't been faithfully going :( Trying to do better. I worked out yesterday & today but still feel fat & out of shape. It's demoralizing.

    Oh, I am so ready, but.........

    We were all supposed to be hitting the Caribbean and a cruise at the beginning of April to celebrate my son's 50th and my 70th but my better half managed to break his ankle in 3 places (compound at that!) so all travel is off for a few months.

    I love the beach and usually haul my snorkeling gear along with me for these trips as well as 7-8 bikinis. Yup I have that many, and 1 swimsuit (that I haven't worn since the day I bought it). I hate sitting around in wet bottoms so always carry a couple spare bikinis to change into.

    Do I look great in my bikinis? Probably not.
    Do I care? Not at all.

    (a friend has a video of me stood in a bikini laughing and my belly is jiggling like crazy. It sets us off laughing all over again every time it is played)

    Cheers, h B)
    I do slather myself in sun block in general, and wear a rashguard when snorkeling.

    Every body is a beach body! Have fun and enjoy the sun and sea no matter your current size and shape. Of course, we all want to feel our best, but I hope people never want to not participate in amazing nature at the beach because they aren't a certain size! F(53), 131 lbs, 5' 2.5".

    With medical problems will never be able to swim in ocean again but can work towards being able to sunbathe

    Well that's a complicated answer. I'm not the biggest fan of my body, but I also won't let that stop me from enjoying the sun and soaking in rays. I won't be impressing anyone I'm sure, but I also won't let insecurities hold me back from living my best life. And one day, with all this working out I do, I'll get both.

    I don't like tiny bikinis. So, no.
