The beach as been like my back yard this summer and honestly I can’t see myself living too far from it. Being on a boat or lounging by the ocean is so peaceful to me. I remember when I use to be so self conscious about wearing a swim suit. Its the one item I was very picky about wearing because I didn’t want to draw too much attention to my hips or my stomach. Then stretch marks..I remember when I heard Tyra Banks admit that she has stretch marks. I was always trying to hide mine and I always wore swimwear that covered them up. It was then I really began to be more comfortable in my own skin and not care about what others thought concerning my body or my style. I’ve always been slim, but with beauty we always want what we don’t have and no matter what body type you are, make a choice to love it anyway. Staying active is key and I have this motto where I only go to the gym during the summer, its so funny to tell this die hard fitness people, because they always day, “Why only in the summer?” This winter I’m making plans to be active because I know a healthy lifestyle is the “best” lifestyle.
