I will be the first to admit it – I am guilty.
I am guilty of wearing my beach cover up for hours a the pool or beach to cover myself up.
I lack confidence.
I am self conscious about my jelly belly and my body’s many imperfections.
Swimsuits make it difficult to hide the things I am so great at covering with clothes
They make it even harder to hide my emotions,
My lack of self confidence,
My sheer embarrassment.
This year I have been working hard to watch what I have been eating and working out hard several days a week.
It has been paying off
So far 11 pounds GONE!
But I still have the same nervousness about putting on that bathing suit again.
For once I want to feel beautiful, despite my shape.
I refuse to sit and wear my cover up this year while my kids beg me to play with them at the pool
I am going to be that Mom that enjoys my summer more than I ever have.
I have a secret weapon this year,
Thanks to Lands End.

Lands End – Thank you for caring about ALL women – of every size and shape. It was such a pleasure to see and hear about your amazing collection at the 2013 Spring Mom Mixer. It is an even greater pleasure to spread the word to all of the Moms out there who deserve to feel comfortable and beautiful on their vacations this summer!
Disclosure: I had the opportunity to meet and chat with representatives from Lands End at last week’s Spring Mom Mixer. I received no monetary compensation for this post. All opinions, as always, are 100% my own. As an attendee of the Mom Mixer, I received a swag bag of goodies.
