"It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live," Marcus Aurelius
Weight or no weight, I am not waiting to live my life.
I love my life. I love the people in it. I love how I choose to be in the moment each and every day of it.
My reason today for wanting to lose weight:
Yup. That dreaded summer time horror show. How can such little material cause such huge anguish??
Thing is, I still wear mine. One of my best friends has a pool and I'll be damned if I'm going to sit on the sidelines dipping my toes in the shallow end all because I don't want to be seen in a swimsuit.
Now, please don't get me wrong...I don't want to be seen in a swimsuit Ha! But I hate the alternative more. When I'm 86 years old and I wonder about things I did when I was younger - I do not want to look back and say I should have swam more but was too self-conscious about being in my bathing suit. I will be mad at my 32 year old self when I'm 86 and I don't want to live a life of regrets.
So, folks, while I won't be posting any pics of my lovely curves in the most minimal of clothing choices, I want you to know that I will indeed be sporting a lil' somethin' to the pool this summer.
