Nobody but those in my home can see me, but you have no idea how good it feels.
I am not one to overdo it and be tanned like leather and I am concerned with my skin health as well as overall health but it is just a bit of me time on the weekend that for many years I was denying myself. Feels so good and my body looks healthier with that summery glow.
You GO girl! I will share a secret that could get me tossed out of the man fraternity. A fat guy is in fact a fat guy. HOWEVER, a big woman is just more woman! Don't feel bad I still can't manage to do the trunks in public thing and I am down to a svelte way too fat
! You and I both are on a journey to correct that and with patience, hard work and tenacity, we will make it. While I will more than likely never meet you, I am proud of you anyway!
