One Piece Frustration

I am a self-proclaimed swimsuit HATER!! Always have been, and always will be. When I was little I would always say that if I was ever president, the first thing I would do is make swimsuits ILLEGAL. (I know, I know...priorities right, hopefully I would do some good as president too)
I am not someone who is built for swimsuits. I like to think i was built for business casual, but even that isnt really that true. I can pull off running shorts and a big ole tshirt like nobody's business though. haha
Anyways, two pieces aren't the best on me, but I feel like one pieces are even worse. As a matter of fact, I feel that there are very few people who feel like they look amazing in a one piece (and I am not talking about a tankini ladies...but a SOLID one piece). I mean, who doesn't love that the leg holes are so tight that it cuts off the circulation in your thighs...and if you get a suit big enough that it doesn't do this then you have saggy butt suit. (if you are reading this and you have never had the thigh circulation issue, then you probably have skinny legs and are not invited to be in my club) Plus we all gotta love how one pieces make a flat girl look like a boy. Haha...I am re-reading this and I sound really disgruntled when in reality I am just laughing at this. Please tell me SOMEONE is with me.
Well, the whole point of this post is that I bought a Nike onepiece today because I am going to start training for a triathlon that is in the end of June and it has been YEARS since i have bought one -- back in the lifeguarding days. We will see how this one works out when I start training. Did I mention it has been years since I intentionally swam laps more than once in a month?? Should be interesting....I am really excited about this tri and the new challenge. I will keep you posted on the progress. Feel free to throw your tri tips my way for you triathlon experts.
Have a great one!!

LoL!!! Preach it sista! Try having a baby... losing all of the weight, plus some, wanting so badly to fit in a cute swimsuit only to find out your body has shifted and even the granny one piece suits look bad...

Looks like another summer of a tank and shorts...

But Gracelee is totally worth it!!!! ; )

I like the memory verse for the week with this post!

And yes, one-pieces look bad on everyone!
