The bikini blues are nothing new for me, I've never, ever had a bikini ready body. At this point in my life, even if I get to my goal weight, I am pretty sure that I wouldn't want to be seen in public in a bikini. Thirty odd years of stretched out skin doesn't bounce back so well. I would guess, if there was any bikini-ness in my future it would be a bikini top. My two c-sectioned belly and mutant thighs are not something anyone else should be sujected to.
That being said, being comfortable wearing a bikini is not one of my goals. Being comfortable in my skin is. Being comfortable in a tri suit is another goal I'd like to reach. Moving from the world of the sedentary into the world of triathlons is certainly an eye opening experience. The amount of skin, really taut, muscular skin is amazing! As are the number of women who aren't so taut and toned but are still in great shape and are out there proving it to the world swimming, biking and running no matter what they look like. Its these women I find far more amazing than the hard bodied bikini babes.
