Bathing Suit: Shein
When the fiancé and I took these pictures, I’m not going to lie, I was disappointed in myself. If you know me (or have been following my blog), you know that I’m really self conscious about my weight and body image. I didn’t like what I saw when these pictures were taken. I think it might’ve had to do with the fact that I had eaten like garbage for a few weeks leading up to this picture. The day after this picture was taken I had already planned a week prior to go back on my diet again. I am going to Poland at the end of August and to be honest, I want to lose some weight so that I can eat whatever I want there and not feel guilty about gaining weight until I get back. I’ve decided to do the keto diet, along with intermittent fasting. I’ll be fasting for 16 hours, and eating keto friendly within an 8 hour window.
I know that I’ve talked about so many different diets, workouts, and lifestyle changes here on the blog, so once I do this, I’ll definitely give an update. This set of photos will be my before photos. I wanted to share these with y’all though. Even though I feel like I look terrible in these pictures, I forced myself to post them. The reason why I named this post bikini body even though I don’t have a bikini body by society’s standards, I saw this meme one day. It said, “How to have a bikini body, put a bikini on your body.”
I know that I’ll never be fully happy with my body, no matter how much weight I lose, how toned I am, etc. I will always find something I don’t like. My problem is that I really enjoy food, more than the average person, and my metabolism just isn’t fast at all. I was also told last year, that my thyroid was abnormal when I got my bloodwork done. They said that it’s nothing serious yet, but that they will monitor it yet. I know that I will most likely have a thyroid issue because it runs in my family. Several months ago I took this Health DNA test and it actually said in my results that my body has to work harder to lose weight than the average person.
As a side note, I did receive this bathing suit as a review. I love the bathing suit, and it’s pretty decent quality. However, unfortunately the bottoms aren’t sewn right. it looks like it might have gotten twisted when it was being sewn. The good thing is, I know how to sew, so I can easily fix it!
**Please note I received this bathing as a review, however all opinions are my own.
