Bathing Suit Season Scare

I don't know about you, but for me, it has to be REALLY hot outside for me to actually want to put on a bathing suit. Gone are the days where I would just prance around town, riding my scooter, in my bathing suit. For some reason, it doesn't seem that long ago that I was actually doing that! But I have to admit, that was a little over 20 years ago. I am turning 39 this July, and I'm doing just fine.

Here are my four reasons for not wanting to put on a bathing suit:
1) I feel too white.
2) I feel too flabby.
3) I feel too cold.
4) I feel like I have much more to do these days than just lay in the sun.

Truthfully, I am not a fan of the bathing suit.

There was a time in my life that I couldn't imagine not wearing a bikini. Oh, and it had to be a bandeau style as to not get any ridiculous tan lines. These days I am thinking about wearing more sunscreen....... and a one piece. Maybe even borderline wet suit! It's not that I think I am overweight, it's just the way I feel. And that doesn't mean it's right. It's just me. Would I feel any different about wearing a bikini again if I was as fit as used to be when I was 15? YES. YOU BET. So, why don't I get into that kind of shape right now at this point in my life? Well, I know it wouldn't take me long. But, there is so much more I want to do in this world than just simply think about myself. Don't get me wrong. I do exercise. But just not enough to look like I am 15 again. I feel if I went to that extent, I would begin neglecting other people who I love and want to spend time with.

  I suppose I am writing this blog post to see if there is anyone else out there who feels the same as I do about bathing suit season. Well, is there anyone out there?

I have done a little research, and at this point in my life, here are the bathing suits that I would actually proudly put on my body:
{Jaclyn Smith's Women's Tankini Top}

{Esther Williams Bathing Beauty One Piece in Cherry Pie}

{Next Tankini in Pink & Purple Combo}

{Surf's Up One Piece Bandeau Sarong Swimsuit}

How do you feel about bathing suits? Do they scare you as much as they scare me? Post a comment and let me know!
