We’re heading into Memorial Day Weekend and I’m really curious to know the answer to the question. Please answer in comments.
For me, it is definitely wearing a bathing suit. I haven’t had an occasion to do it in a few years but the thought of it is not a pleasant one. Since I got sick with Lyme Disease and lost a very quick 25 pounds, my skin just dropped in my legs. I’ve always had a cheesy butt and have been able to cover up the dimples on the top part of my thighs with skirted swim suits.
Now, at 60 years old, even with a lifetime habit of exercise, and being slim, my legs look old. You can’t cover up legs in a bathing suit. Maybe I should just wear a wetsuit? Wouldn’t that be cute at a pool party?
Regarding the scale, again, since being sick with LD, I weigh myself daily. It is a component of my daily charting. I have absolutely no anxiety about it.
Prior to being sick, I didn’t even own a scale. I used my clothing as the measurement of whether I needed to cut back on intake or whether I was clear to treat.
We know my life has not been the same since Lyme Disease and never will be—all for the good!
