Daughter and son then i... I had the prefect Father's Day beach vacation.
When you forget to sign up for pole class, you go hiking. Off to #lincolnville to check out #fernaldneckpreserve I want to say it was nice to get outside and on the trail. But the swarm of blood thirsty mosquitos makes that difficult. While i was wearing enough bug dope to keep them from biting (mostly) the cloud of them that surrounded me and buzzing in my ears, oh let's not forget getting inhaled as i gasp for breath, made for a not so fun time. Felt as if I needed to run the trail and this #fatchick dont run. I was SO miserable, that i cut the hike in half. Maybe when things dry up I'll return and do the second loop. Weather was perfect. At the end i saw a car enter with a dog's head stuck out the window. The perserve does not allow dogs. I was hopeful the lady would see the #nodogs sign and return to her car. Nope. Not only did they continue walking, but the dog wasn't even on a leash. This kind of thing burns my ass and reflects poorly on all dog owners #hike45of52#52hikechallenge2019#hikingsolo#fatgirlhikes#dontwait#unlikelyhiker#leftmydogathome#maine#ihatemosquitos
I’m not sure how I missed posting this pic here. Anyone who’s on FB, sorry you gotta see my sexy legs twice. Lol
Anyway, I am 5’7”, and I weigh 270lbs. I carry my weight in my midsection, making shopping for flattering clothes super hard.
Shorts have been a challenge for years. For shorts to be large enough to fit around my belly means the legs are huge and make me look silly. Or they hug my thighs nicely, but the muffin top is unacceptable. Or, they’re all Bermuda’s, because people assume that because I’m large, I want to cover up my legs.
I found these magical shorts at Fred Meyer the other day, and I’m living in them. They fit perfectly, they were cheap, they’re comfy. And they’re cute as heck. I bought every pair they had in my size, which, of the 7-8 colors available, only three total pairs were in my size (18).
Anyway, I’m never taking these shorts off for the rest of the summer. I’ll treasure these shorts until they are too big or until they’re too tattered to wear, whichever comes second, really. Lol
The whole point of this post though is to tell you that you can wear shorts. Have chunky legs? Cellulite? Scars? Haven’t shaved in weeks? Literally no one cares, and those who do care don’t matter. It’s hot. Wear shorts. Wear that tank top that makes you nervous about your bingo arms. Wear the crop top. Wear a bikini because you wanna tan your belly, too. Wear whatever the hell you want, because, despite what society wants you to think, you look great, confidence is beautiful, and you can wear whatever the fuck you want!!
