Here’s the deal, you’ve only got one life to live. Just because you have on a little extra weight is no reason to hide yourself and not do the things you want. It’s summer. If you want to go to the beach and have a little fun, go to the beach and have a little fun. If your husband doesn’t want to come with you because he thinks you’re fat and he doesn’t want to be seen with you, especially on the beach where there will be all these skinny girls to reinforce to him just how skinny you’re not and make him more unhappy with you and you more unhappy with him for being unhappy with you, it might not be such a bad thing to leave him home.
Trust me, even us skinny girls still can’t live up to expectations. There’s still something for our husbands to find fault with, and going to the beach with our husbands can be deflating for us too, because there will be girls with bigger boobs, sexier butts, prettier faces that we catch our husbands looking at. You can’t ever win as a woman so why try to compete in the contest? Just live your life because it’s the only one you’ve got.
Women come in all shapes and sizes and if you have a more curvaceous body there’s no reason to be ashamed of it and try to cover it up. Don’t avoid going out and living life and having fun because people, including your husband, make you feel like you don’t deserve to be happy just because you’re not skinny. Curvy women can still look good, so instead of sitting around complaining that you can’t go to the beach because you’re too fat to wear a bathing suit, go shopping and try to find a flattering bathing suit designed for women of your size and shape and go create some memories for summer 2012.
It’s about how you feel, not how you look or how other people think you look and how they think you ought to feel and try to make you feel.
