The fatkini made its debut at the pool today.
Life is too short to worry about what other people think. I can honestly say I haven’t shown this much skin in public since I was 5 or 6 years old. I felt awkward and uncomfortable, but needed to step out of my comfort zone in order to grow as a person. I’m really happy I made the spontaneous decision to purchase this instead of a one-piece. I’ve come a long way with my weight loss and am far from “perfect”, but I’m learning to embrace what I have! I’m sharing these photos in hopes that I might inspire someone else to be bold.
As a sidenote (and because I have been asked this question before)— I promise my lumps and bumps are untouched! I’m a firm believer in embracing bodies as they are. This is me in all of my chubby glory!
