Kat 3 months ago ** medication Kat 3 months ago I’m one of those moms that finds every excuse possible not to go in MY OWN POOL! I feel guilty about it too… I have bad arthritis so a lot of operations scars, ugly arm and the madication made me gain weight. My daughter BEGS me to come in the pool every time. I need to look at that list and remember #3. lynn besen 3 months ago #3 yes! Karin 3 months ago So true! I just did a post yesterday about this! We need to live in the moment and just have a great time in the sun! http://www.messycasual.com/2015/05/swimsuit-season-pep-talk.html?m=1 dani 3 months ago I lived this. And though I hate that someone else experienced this, is nice to know you’re not alone. I’m in the beginning stages of the divorce and I’m so excited to start my new life. It’s me 3 months ago #2… YES! The only thing I need to remember is to start shaving on a daily basis once the shorts come out. Being Mediterranean has it’s downfalls and hair is one of them! vee 3 months ago #9 all the way. Nothing you see in a magazine is real life. They might have good bodies, but no one has an airbrushed to perfect body. Jacki Wilbur-Smith 4 months ago Man, this is not related to this specific post, just the blog in general. I have been going through some major shit with my now 15 year old daughter for the past year, and stumbled on this via Facebook – so awesome to have someone say I do not have to be perfect etc, coz I have felt guilt for telling her to f*%%ing get over herself sometimes even though I know she is going through shit, but for crying out loud, I AM HUMAN! So thanks heaps for your posts denise 1 year ago Amen! Clearly not a scary mommy… 1 year ago “Pale skin = fewer wrinkles” Why assume your audience is white? Nishie 1 year ago I love this! Just want to add to #4 – “unless they’re so small (or practically non-existent) that gravity has no effect” Shari 1 year ago This is so spot on – hilarious! Sharing it on my Facebook for sure. Holli Robertson 1 year ago I read your blog post and then another and then subscribed!! Love your stuff! Claire 1 year ago I love this! I am blogging about getting back to the pool and am sharing this, (of course giving credit to you) on the blog today. It was so needed today. So glad I read it! Happy Summer! Toni Campbell Shaw 1 year ago It’s taken me 60+ years to get this body & it’s pretty perfect to me!! Could use some toning but I look & feel fantastic!!! Cept the left knee & that is getting replaced, soon! Patricia Gibson-Williams 1 year ago If our worth as women was tied up in breasts and butts I’ll bet most of us wouldn’t mind having the extra. LOL I used to have that killer body and it’s hard for me to put on a swim suit, but I want my son to remember me as the mom who was always doing fun things with him. Not as the mom sitting on the sidelines. Besides maybe if I keep him busy he won’t notice that I’m fat. Caitlin Browne 1 year ago YOU are a phenomenal woman!!! Beautiful inside and out and I am very happy for you!! Cheryl 1 year ago Love this! I try so hard not to be self conscience in front of my daughters but it’s difficult! Shy Pattie 1 year ago So good. Brittany Handler Toft 1 year ago Thank you! So true:) Alice Scholes 1 year ago So true….I love it! Martha Burns 1 year ago As a grandmother, still waiting to go in the pool…..so not worth the vanity. Peter 1 year ago I love woman who are ‘body positive’. My wife has had 3 children and thinks she looks “huge” but to me looks awesome and I tell her so often. I see large women who wear tight clothes, short shorts, bikinis etc and still think they are sexy. It’s really unfortunate that I can’t convince her otherwise and chooses to wear unflattering clothing to cover up. I wish women would stop thinking All men want what Hollywood and TV pushes. The majority of us men are not that shallow… Sandra Rees 1 year ago Remember……that’s their problem, don’t let it become yours Diane Goodhart 1 year ago YES!!!!!!!!!! Now I feel soooooo much better about myself…Thanks for sharing!!!! Connie Tibbs Franklin 1 year ago The one about your child kit Remembering your spider veins or muffin top really hit home. What they remember is you playing with them more than anything. Mande Kay Sumner 1 year ago I’m almost 40 years old and I am very self confident. I am also courteous enough not to share parts of my body that other people may find offensive. Again, I am almost 40, strutting around in a string bikini is for the 20 something crowd. Helen Subacius 1 year ago Now I feel a little better. Karen Edelmann-Schweppe 1 year ago I like #9 a lot! Shannon Casey Schinkel 1 year ago OMG So true……. I work SO hard at fighting age….. But for 46 I look pretty damn good I think…… Bronwen Metcalf 1 year ago #9 is so true! Juli Hutchens Miller 1 year ago Super love . :). :). Ann Thompson 1 year ago This list rocks!

Have Fun With Your Kids Treasure Every Moment, It’s passes to fast!!! been there done that!!! Rudy Theobald 1 year ago # 11. it doesn’t matter what you THINK you look like in a bathing suit. ALL that matters is every night that your husband wants you in the bed with out it!! Katie | The Surly Housewife 1 year ago Love this! I think number 5 is my fav. Cuz who really would want to go back to high school. I’m anxious just thinking about it!! Thanks for the laugh! Shared Anna Louise Davis 1 year ago This. This I love. Lynn Friel 1 year ago No. 7 sooo not true. Too many hours on NJ shore baking. Then TX now NM! Many wrinkles. Rosemary McFeely Boukus 1 year ago #7= not in my case. Tammie Fox Harris 1 year ago I’m just going to start making my own swimsuits, so, I know they fit my body and not what some big-money-grubbin-store thinks I should be wearing. I’ve already started making my own Maxi dresses! Mika’ele N Clevelnette Edwards 1 year ago #10…. Get over it. MW Bovary 1 year ago And don’t forget to jump in and swim. That’s what your swimsuit is actually for!!! Mel Frausto 1 year ago Amén sister Christy L Baird Koch 1 year ago im 27 and have a 8 year old – i do have stretch marks and i hate my stomach isn’t flat – i work out and try to eat right or watch my calories .. i weigh 109. ive been bout this weight for years and then af ew years ago i gained and was like 125 and now finally back down to 109 but im still 10-15 lbs more than before i had my daughter. and i do hate my boobs too lol. i have gotten better feeling good bout myself the past few months and i did wear a bikini at Idlewild a few weeks ago – but still wish i had abs. Linda Maiato Simao 1 year ago Lmao!!! Lori Leimann McGee 1 year ago ALOT of women buy into the unrealistic myth that women are supposed to be PERFECT Barbie dolls ( even AFTER kids ), SERIOUSLY : ( !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sherry Mansfield Perrier 1 year ago Who cares what we look like beauty is inside our bodies are just a shell it’s what’s inside that matters most as long as you have a wonderful soul Dawn Dropski 1 year ago Loved reading this!! Tamara Martinez 1 year ago This iapplied to everyone not just moms. Carrol Pahkamaa 1 year ago Good Rules !!!!! Bbf Teach 1 year ago Love it! #5 Debra Johnson Romero 1 year ago made my day! Laura Eckert 1 year ago Yes!! Do it for your kids. ALSO do it for you… The more you enjoy the water the less you’ll care what you look like climbing out of it. Such a great stress reliever. My daughter and I can bicker all day long on dry land, but the only time we argue in the water is when I’m dragging her out of it 2 hours later. Susan Cooper 1 year ago My favorite is #3. So true! Becci Karl 1 year ago That’s great!!! And so true!! Sharon Stephenson Russo 1 year ago That’s classic! Carla Petrig 1 year ago Wish I could look at it that way. Becky L. Mosley 1 year ago Great attitude! lesbomom 1 year ago LOVE LOVE LOVE JJ 1 year ago I disagree. Maybe you need to find a new best friend if she talks shit about you behind your back? Karen Buck 1 year ago Never cared what I looked like at the beach—just want to be on the beach all the time! Lia Borges Gyore 1 year ago Thank you for the reminder. I was self-conscious in a bathing suit when I weighed 105 pounds and had muscle tone. No bikinis for me. For years I didn’t put on a suit at all. Then I realized I was missing my life over it. STUPID! Still not sporting a bikini, but at least I will wear a suit at the beach now. It takes a long time to heal from severe body-image issues. Maggie Martinez Flores 1 year ago Lol too funny Jennifer 1 year ago Amen. Kathleen McMahon 1 year ago I especially love 8-10 Tamara Springsteed Hancock 1 year ago I look amazing in a swimsuit, mostly because I’m happy, smiling and having a great time with my kids. Jan Shifferd 1 year ago Right!!!! Whitney Nutting Judd 1 year ago Christy N Travis Jones….Haha! Erika Edwards Polley 1 year ago I never felt more womanly or powerful than when I was first pregnant. Do I like all of the after effects of becoming a mother? No. But after multiple miscarriages, I’m damn proud of what my body is today. Meg Spletzer Raminiak 1 year ago The fact that we even NEED 10 reminders about our bodies at the beach is pretty pathetic. How about reminding us to enjoy our kids, reapply sunscreen, recognize the real signs of drowning, bring healthy snacks? I’m so sick of women’s body obsession. Teresa Maday Kremer 1 year ago Thanks, I needed that! Jennifer Farris Pearse 1 year ago http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jessica-n-turner/moms-put-on-that-swimsuit_b_5521937.html Katie 1 year ago Caveat to #4: Unless you don’t have any. 😉 Maura Brady 1 year ago Actually, I partially disagree with #7. I would agree that a pale-skinned person looks better/less wrinkled with limited sun exposure, but I’ve found that my darker complexed friends tend to have fewer wrinkles than I do. Dick Jackson 1 year ago you women don’t give your self enough credit, your all beautiful no matter what size you are. Most women do more in the first 3 hours of the day then most men do all day Allison Haight Harvey 1 year ago awesome. thanks so much!! Nicole Precourt 1 year ago Ok like 2 out of 10 of these were exclusive to moms. The rest were for women everywhere. Not everyone is a mom or is going to be one. Just because someone isn’t doesn’t mean they don’t feel the same about themselves Amy Geralyn Albers 1 year ago I love taking my kids to the beach! I dont look perfect but swimming and laughing with them is the best. My mom never would do that with us and i dont want my kids to remember me just watching them…. after all no body has to like how i look but me David Stowe 1 year ago Most men don’t prefer skinny women. Beatrice Leavens Brown 1 year ago I’m 55, 3 teens 18, 16 and 14. I droop all over the place, if it is droopy its soggy. I have cellulite in all the right and wrong places. My boobs ran farther away with each child. I have decided, that I don’t care what other people see. If I am with my kids, they are looking at my kids not me. My girls are wearing my clothes, but I use theirs also. Comfort is my key to fashion. Colleen Erickson 1 year ago This goes along with one of my favorite quotes about bathing suits: “Do you know what you need to get for a bikini body? A bikini and a body.” Regina Brookman 1 year ago Hey I’m only 10 years too old for the lifeguards thank you very much, lol Denise Michaud McCallum 1 year ago So true, tagged…tx Sylvia Spar 1 year ago Good!

Hope 1 year ago Isn’t that the truth Tinne from Tantrums and Tomatoes 1 year ago Amen! Judy A Draper Leib 1 year ago true beauty comes from within and if someone cans see that they aren’t worth knowing.,Carried 5 babies, have the scars to prove it and each scar represents the miracles God gave to me…If you don’t like how I look then look the other way. Kari Clarke 1 year ago Amen sister! Monica M. Wiedel-Lubinski 1 year ago Thank you. I needed to hear this because WOW. It’s hard not to be uncomfortable when walking around basically naked at the swimming pool around strangers! Marcia @ Menopausal Mother 1 year ago All of it—–YESSSSS! Autism with a side of fries 1 year ago Absolutely! Ann Martin Main 1 year ago Love this!!!! Preeta Sanjith 1 year ago wow this def cheered me up Melanie Saxton-Dempsey 1 year ago Amen sista! Holly Smith Yankus 1 year ago #4 is my fav! Lol Hannah Gill 1 year ago I looked back at some photos of myself the summer before I fell pregnant with my eldest boy. Predictably, I saw that i wasn’t fat at all and if I’d not been so damned self concious and insecure, I could’ve worn that bikini I’d been pining over. Lynne-maggot Morris 1 year ago Love this when its hot I put shorts on if no one likes it don’t fucking look why should I suffer and be hot for other people just don’t look x Kelly Richards-collins 1 year ago All true but if your that conscious u can do something about it, simple! Marie Ransom 1 year ago HA HA no. 4 is funny Ellie Key 1 year ago #4 and #8 – hilarious! Hanneke Broné 1 year ago Only #3 actually requires being a mom, other points are valid too for women who havent got any children.. Max Solberg 1 year ago One of the most attractive features in women is confidence. Leigh Norwood 1 year ago All I have to say is if that 250lb, 5 ft 11 in man in the tiny speedo can be confident , even though he has never once given birth to a child , then us women should be as well!! I am quite cury and naturally pale , but come every swim season, I take my kids swimming in my cute and covering swim dress. I love what you have written !! ☺ Keri Sharp Sheffield 1 year ago 😀 Tonya Trayler Gonzales 1 year ago I could have used this the other day, when I was crying in the store trying on swimsuits. Katie De Oliveira Anderson 1 year ago I look better now than i did in high school lol Theresa Brumley 1 year ago So true. Just embrace your body. Sheila Gow 1 year ago I asked my 2 yr old today if my fat belly was icky. She said it was pretty and hugged it. I have to remember she doesn’t care about my being overweight, having cellulite, droopy boobs and gray hair. She only cares I am there for her and she loves me. Steve Marybeth Dobrowolski 1 year ago So true…especially #6 after carrying triplets to 35 wks! Lisa Hopkins 1 year ago this is so true…enjoy life without regets!!! Katie Burney 1 year ago #10 for sure! Kara Willis 1 year ago Thank you! It’s hard for me to remember this. Deidre Smith 1 year ago LMFAO Dawn Makoski 1 year ago Easy said……. Abbey Butcher 1 year ago Here Here…….though I’m going to have to agree with #5. I feel like I look better than I did in high school after taking some time to take care of myself! Andrea Morroni 1 year ago This is great and so true. I don’t look like I did in high school but them I am 66 and I am still here. Lots of friends from high school are no longer with us. Patricia Carroll 1 year ago I love this and need to remember it!! Ulrika Frank 1 year ago Breathe, exhale, and RELAX! Brenda Shepperd 1 year ago Yes very busy. But it’s worth it…right…I think…just kidding…it’s definitely worth it. Jane I’m like you I have some areas that definitely need a little work but I still look good and I’m very self confident in who I am and its an amazing feeling. Jennifer Reinhard 1 year ago Haha! Kaleen Repsher 1 year ago Right, your kids don’t care!!!!! Just be there for your kids and have fun! Carolyn Stieb-Stanton 1 year ago I have not had kids, but still have cellulite, muffin top, bat arms, all that good stuff. I do hate the way I look, most of the of the time. My husband tells me I am beautiful, guess I need to remember that more often. Janett Garcia-Riseland 1 year ago Yup! Samantha Shay Epstein 1 year ago Number 8 is depressing and the fact that it’s depressing is pathetic. TomTheresa Parker 1 year ago Be who you are, not what someone else thinks you should be. Susan Mead 1 year ago Love number 7 lol Alexandria Turzanski 1 year ago Number 3 for sure!!! Trisha Lea 1 year ago Thanks for sharing. Betty Craig 1 year ago Amen Erin McDermott Scott 1 year ago Love this! Had to share it Heather Casady Gibbens 1 year ago #8! Lol so true! Brooke Lewis 1 year ago Especially #7! Jenn Galbraith 1 year ago #4, if the surgery is done right, they will drop, but still stay perky in comparison to completely natural. I got mine 6 years ago for ME so I was proportioned. Great surgeon and great results. Then I gained a bit of weight and grew a cup size LOL. 😉 I wouldn’t want to look like the models nowadays, they are all too thin. I’ve got curves but do need to tone up. And my son loves to poke my tiny fat rolls. Time to get in shape lol. Brenda Shepperd 1 year ago Some of us worry about the way we look in a swimsuit not because of what others think but because we like to feel good about ourselves. It’s about being healthy and liking who you are. It’s about having self respect and I’m sorry but looking good (in my own eyes) makes me feel good. And for the record, I’m not skinny but I’m not fat either I don’t work out. I am 41 with two kids and my workouts are running them around and laundry and cleaning and yes I also work outside the home. I do however take care of myself with trying to eat decent etc. I am extremely pale and I hate it…but I don’t tan or bake in the sun because I don’t want skin cancer….however there is this great thing called a spray tan that is AMAZING….and let’s face it tan looks better than white. If we as women can’t admit to ourselves that we want to look good then that is a problem and there is nothing wrong with wanting to look good. It will do amazing things for your confidence! Sandy Herron-Dunn 1 year ago Hear hear! Love it! Janice Silveira Hamilton 1 year ago Maw Maw’s included ~~~~ Chris Szabo 1 year ago Found the best swimsuit of my LIFE just last week!

Tramequa Surratt 1 year ago Oh, they will remember *shudder* Geri Briggs 1 year ago FABULOUS!!! Kristina Moore 1 year ago Truth Heather Gochoel 1 year ago #7 is my summer go to for staying inside where it’s nice and cool. I hate swimming (and not because of the bathing suit factor. I just hate it.) Margie Sheehan 1 year ago Amen ! Shelby Shelby 1 year ago So sad that there are women out there who won’t go swimming for fear of being seen in a bathing suit. Yes, you will be blinded from the sight of me, and nothing hangs quite where it did when I was 16, but I’ll be damned if I’m not going in the water because of it! Nina Brown 1 year ago True. Except #2 is wrong. Women will talk shit about their best friend, let alone other women, behind their back, and they do well into their 80’s. Barbara Sellen 1 year ago That’s why grandmas are fun we really don’t care we only want to impress our babies Amanda Conine 1 year ago Amen! Joanne Coy 1 year ago Too true!

Alisa Zvalaren-nordt 1 year ago After 2 babies my hubby still loves my body chub and all so I don’t care anymore. Wendy Lawson 1 year ago I solved this problem by not wearing a swimsuit. Shorts and a tshirt do just fine and cover a bit more. Besides, try finding a stylish bathing suit in size 26 for less than 100.00. Got better things to spend my money on lol. Michele Strelka Weir 1 year ago And the teenage girls who are gossiping about you…..karma is a bitch!!!! Jen Norton Friendlich 1 year ago Love this! Thanks! Chaundra Stewart 1 year ago Yes!!

Christina Hoover 1 year ago Thank you. I needed to read this. Everytime I go to the lake I am surrounded by girls half my age, or girls my age, and then of course older ladies, but I always feel like I’m being sized up, I have rather large tata’s and no matter what kind of swimsuit I wear, I can not hide them! I’m pale as all get out, and I’m chubby. I feel like a walking marshmallow most time. I try going to the lake at less populated times too, I read this laughed and think I’m going to the lake during a busy time. Karen Rosenberger 1 year ago YESSSSSS!!! Sara Sullivan 1 year ago All true but I still hate the way I look in a bathing suit. Debbie Hurtado 1 year ago #3. Gotta keep remembering this. Angela Lange 1 year ago Amen!!!

I am covered in stretchmarks..my boobs have definitely dropped, I have a C section scar that has been sliced 3 times..I have the mom pouch and I still feel pretty damn good about myself. This body wasn’t made to look at it was made to live in and give life. Tut TheSphynx 1 year ago It’s really true, we’re more concerned with ourselves than anyone else. I never see other women at the beach and judge them in my mind, never! We need to all chill. Meredith Elaine 1 year ago Bravo! Lisa Stauffer-Vitale 1 year ago Perfect!!!
