For a very long time I felt that certain trips should be saved for when I looked a certain way. I would tell myself things like “when I fit into a bikini, I will go to Jamaica/Hawaii/Miami/Mexico”.
Even though I’ve got the gumption now to book trips to those places, I still have to push through nerves and body insecurity once I get there. That first moment by the pool when I take off my cover-up is never easy, no matter how many times I’ve done it.
It always feels like everyone is looking at me and if I hear laughter in the distance, I still tense up, wondering if someone is laughing at me. As many times as I’ve had an internal freak out moment, no one has ever been laughing at me; if anything when I confidently rock my warm weather clothes (mini-dresses, bare arms, bikinis, etc.) people are kind and complimentary.
We are worthy of fun trips and weekends away with friends at any size. We work hard, we deserve to enjoy life now, no matter what we look like. Also, if you’re waiting to fit into a bikini… you already do thanks to GabiFresh!
I vlogged my trip to Miami last week and the weekend was nothing but a celebration of warm weather, good friends, family and loving my body through fitness and fashion. If there’s a trip you’re thinking about taking this summer, do it! Don’t Wait on your Weight to Travel!
Do you have any fun trips planned this summer?
Also, I was really happy to use the AT&T Drive Mode app. We used the app while we drove around Miami because it really makes no sense to eat healthy and work out… only to get in the car and put lives at risk. So, if you live in a city where you drive a lot I urge you to download the DriveMode app on your device. Like AT&T says, it can wait!
