I had not been to Ocean City in a good 15+ years (since I was a preteen!) We had lived in New England for several years, so I got used to the lack of waves up there. I always missed the big crashing waves of the Mid-Atlantic though!
It was overcast and windy on our last day there...until just before we were leaving - it always works out like that, doesn't it!
That wasn't going to stop me, though! I love the ocean. I wish this picture would have turned out better - I don't know what happened to it. The water was definitely cold at first, but in reality, it was probably warmer in there than on the beach!
This is my "Holy Shit, this is F***ing COLD!" face. It's one that is very familiar. Since this is a weight-loss blog and not just a fun photo album, I included a nice little before/after side by side. The last photo I have of myself in a bathing suit is from 2007. I've never been one to shy away from the beach or swimming just because of how I looked in a bathing suit, but apparently I didn't photograph those moments too often ;)
I can't wait to go back to the beach in July - for a whole week next time!
