I should have posted this last week when I originally read this article after a friend shared it on Facebook. Jenny Trout is an inspiration to me, and to women around the country who just want to love and enjoy their bodies, whatever they may look like, in the face of pressures to be ashamed of the fact that they don’t live up to the (extremely artificial) media ideal.
So despite my earlier post saying that I wouldn’t wear a bikini, I did buy one, and I did wear it, because if Jenny can do it, we all can do it! Let’s learn to love ourselves just the way we are, and enjoy the feeling of sun on our skin! (With plenty of 30 SPF sunscreen on… no need to go crazy!)
