Swimsuit Confidence... bring it on! Well, maybe... wait a minute...

Just WHAT did I get myself into??!?!?

Sure, it started innocently enough. Pretty much. An email popped up from some great folks at Lands End: Do I have swimsuit confidence? Would I be willing to post a photo of myself in a bathing suit to show how women of all shapes and sizes are beautiful in their bathing suits?? HECK Yeah my inner woman screamed. I can do this - I'm not ashamed.

So a few minutes later, after browsing the Lands End website and selecting a suit, I sent a note back - I'm CONFIDENT! I can do this! It'll be so much fun!

Then, I stopped... and thought... and thought... UM, WHAT did I just do??? Me, in a bathing suit? For the whole world to see?

So my internal pep talk began. Self, I say: I am not afraid to relax on the beach.. or go surfing, stand-paddle boarding, or kayaking in public. Yes, in public. And I don't mind. That must count for something. Seriously, how bad could putting a picture of me on the web in a bathing suit be...

SEE, its not that bad - here's one now:

Guess you'll just have to wait til tomorrow and the start of National Swimsuit Confidence Week with Lands End!
