New swimming suit

Hubby and I were not expecting a long weekend as he was originally scheduled to work on Labor Day. However, at the last minute, the boss realized it was a holiday weekend and everything was rescheduled. So, we decided to take advantage of Labor Day sales and replace a good portion of hubby's work attire.

As a unexpected benefit to all of our shopping, I found a new swimming suit! I have lost 45 pounds since the beginning of 2009. My old swimming suit was purchased at my highest weight and I realized this weekend how much I've shrunk out of it.



I spotted this cute swimming suit as we walked into Macy's. My old swimming suit made me feel immodest even though it was a standard 1-piece. This swimming suit is like wearing a little dress and makes me feel much more covered.

I was rather shocked by the sticker price. That tiny amount of Lycra retailed for $98! It had been marked down to $73.50, then $49. Yesterday's final sticker price was $29.99. Much better!

Really pretty! I'll have to go see if I can find some swimming suit bargains now that the season is over. Maybe I'll go check Macy's...

Nanna - It is a challenge at the end! It's hard to keep up the momentum for that last little push, but it's so worth it!

Karen - Thanks! They had really good end of season sales so I am sure you will find a really good bargain.

Congratulations on losing 45 lbs.!

Since March 2010, my hubby has lost 50 lbs. and I've lost 96 lbs.

He has about 10-15 more lbs. to lose till he's at his goal weight and I have about 25-35 more lbs. till I am at mine.

I think the hard part for us will be to maintain the weight once we reach the goal, losing it hasn't been that hard at all.
