Lands' End

I'm really trying. I'm really trying to have the confidence. But in reality, I don't really have swimsuit confidence because:

1) I have a permanent farmers tan. But I'm a farmer* what do you expect?

*I like faking being a farmer :)

2) I had a baby 1o months ago and despite breastfeeding and exercising, still have 5 lbs on me. Maybe it is because I have ZERO self control over my crazy hunger and eating!

But I think this contest sponsered by Lands End is TOTALLY COOL! Inspirational enough to make realize I look acceptable in a swimsuit but also show me in picture form that I need to get out and run a few more miles and do a million more crunches before it is officially warm enough to swim in Ohio. ;)

I don't have Twitter so I'm doing the blog version of the contest. You can too! Must post your picture today!

Screw the 5lbs - be happy in the body you are in! You look great! (and chances are, the last bit won't come off till Blaine is weened...seems to be a pattern round here...)

You don't look like you have any extra weight on you, you look fantastic!

I have so many funny tan lines from running, I feel your pain. :)

Leslie said...

Girl, if I looked like that, I would put on a bathing suit with pride! Seriously, you look great!

Elizabeth said...

I am so impressed with you! You look great!

Megan said...

Momma, you're looking good! I don't notice an extra 5 lbs at all!

Not sure where 5 lbs is supposed to come from--you look great!
