Eh.... not really. I've been tellign myself I'd get ready for bathing suit season, but then I realized my beach vaca was coming up sooner than I thought and no preparations had happened yet!
I think that you should start, not thinking, that vacation is too soon to see any results. You will get more self esteem. Good start is half of a job :)don't put aside things like this one:) It's your body, work with it.
@edekeful A lot of women have self-esteem without wearing a bikini. Being able to walk three miles in about forty minutes is a top priority to me, and being in shape. Bikinis are not indication of feeling good about yourself.
Thanks sweetiepie! That's exactly what i was thinking. I don't need to wear a bikini to have self esteem. And honestly based on my personal modesty standards, I don't really want to wear one anyway.
@ElleBee Good point about the modesty issue! There are a lot of cultures where women would not feel comfortable wearing one, and I feel it is a bit silly imply a woman's self-esteem is contingent upon this attire.
Yes diet diet diet diet! I want to look good on the beach :-)
No I don't because the bikini season never seems to arrive in this country
I'm afraid that ship has passed my shores! Once upon a time I did prepare for bikini season though I never really wore a bikini.
Preparation always revolved around losing weight and probably always will.
No, not a bikini type myself I prefer a one piece with swimming far more important than how I look, I'm free of all this nonsenese, no future in looking good at the expense of more important things. Good question.
I eat healthy and exercise, but wearing a bikini does not rank high up there with my priorities. Even when I was 19 and weighed near a hundred pounds I had no interests. I think takinis, sarongs, and a myriad of other suits are cuter anyway. Do guys stress over wearing a speedo? Not usually.
Most guys won't wear a speedo. You gotta have an absolutely perfect Adonis body to even think about it. But bikinis look good on most women. I think so anyway...
@tmbridgeland Well, I think us women could use that logic to say most men would also look good in a speedo. I am not even the modest type per se, it is just the whole double standard concept of the bikini vs the speedo that never made it appealing.
Only gay guys and professional swimmers wear speedos.
@Kyledude I met a few fit and sexy heterosexual men who wore speedos, and they were not professional swimmers. The point is thinking women should get in shape for a bikini, but only certain men wear speedos is a double standard.
Women would laugh at average guys wearing a speedo.
I clean my glasses very carefully, and make sure my prescription heart meds are in stock.
I used to go to the tanning salon at the beginning of the warm season just to get a bit of color on my otherwise white body. I absolulely hate tan lines and since my bikinis differ in styles, I thought it would be a good thing to do. I went to the gym everyday for a workout.
It wasn't for appearances like others would think. I did it because when one fights depression on a constant basis, this lifts the spirits somehow. It made me feel good about myself and gave me self esteem. I didn't realize these benefits until I stopped treating myself to a little bit of luxury. I wish I hadn't stopped because, now, I find it harder to feel good about ME

Do you think promiscuity and low self-esteem go hand in hand?I have seen many woman randomly give their most precious possession (their bodies) to anyone that would take it.
