FFFC

Anyone?

I wore skorts yesterday. Go ahead and judge. I have short, chubby legs so finding flattering shorts is virtually impossible.

    @Kate_C  I have a black tennis skort that just looks like a cute black skirt and it is seriously one of the cutest most flattering "skirts" I've ever owned.  No judgment from me!

    We just joined the YMCA and I signed up for adult swim lessons! And by adult, they mean ages 13+...so I'm hoping I'm not the only 30+ woman in the class...buuuut I will finally be able to venture past the 1ft section at the pool  L-)
    Good for you!  And then you can get your LO some lessons too.  I'm in MN so everybody learns how to swim at a young age (too many lakes!), but I know that isn't the norm and I think it is an important life skill!
    Thanks! We signed her up as well...I'm nervous and excited!

    I wish I could even get away with a skort! I never wear anything that shows my knees or above. My legs are easily my least favorite body part. I'd rather show my stomach than my legs.

    I used to be that way. But if you actually look at the legs of other people wearing shorts, most folks have some dimpling or unevenness on their thighs - even skinny people and younger people. So why be uncomfortable and hot? I think I'm going to order a skort from Athleta per @jthree‌ 's suggestion. They have some cute ones online!

    Ugh. I just can't believe how crappy I feel...I think it's because I was drinking tap beer.

    @kate_c Do it! They are so comfy.  I will suggest if you want a little longer length order the Tall size.  I'm only 5'6" but some of mine are talls, just because I want the skirt length to be closer to my knees and not mid-thigh. (No one needs to see that if I can help it!) It depends on the skort itself but I usually go tall if it is an option.  You actually inspired me to order another one for this summer and I have the Everyday skort in my shopping cart right now, only $39.  Love a good sale!

    I used to be the same too @knitfaced But it is too hot and uncomfortable always being in jeans or capris.  These skorts saved my life.


    My calves are fine so if I can find the right length, we're good -- the problem is finding the right length that isn't so narrow that it doesn't fit over my butt/ thighs. I am plus sized and for some reason these seems to be really hard to find.  I'm not sure why.  Maybe I should start a clothing line.

    @hatroopes I'm so proud of you! You know they always say black people don't even try to learn how to swim

    Mine was a gift and it is at least 30 years old. Invest now and give it to your daughter. She will thank you some day. Just make sure you get a classic one and not a trendy one.

  • @MsAmeera25‌ at least you get in the pool! 90% of my husbands family WILL NOT even put their feet in the pool or any form of water. This includes my MIL and three of his four siblings.

  • @mrandmrsk91011 I'm pretty sure spider rolls don't have raw fish, so you should be able to eat that while pregnant!

    I know! That makes me super happy. What doesnt make me happy is that the closest sushi place is 30 minutes from my house, lol
    I think they actually revised the rules about sushi in between my pregnancies - I"ve read some stuff about it being okay as long as it is something you ate prior to becoming pregnant and is from a reputable place (um, why would you ever eat sushi from a NON reputable place?!)

    That said - I had raw fish sushi a couple of weeks ago in an act of pregnant defiance and then was sick the whole next week - probably not related,but it didn't make me feel great about the choice, so I probably won't do it again!

  • @jss1002 I ate some sushi once while pregnant... it was in the icky phase of pregnancy and it was the ONLY thing that sounded appetizing... I lost all control in a moment of weakness! Anyway, the guilt and worrying I felt afterwards were SO not worth it, so I didn't touch it again. The funny thing is that now that I've had Rhys, I don't like sushi as much as I used to :-(

    Yeah, that's kind of how I feel about it -- also, getting sick shortly after might have me "off" sushi for a while because it no longer sounds appetizing.  Sigh.  OH well.  I felt the same way about alcohol with both pregnancies -- I thought I'd be the type that still enjoyed an occasional small glass of red wine, but the first pregnancy it sounded TERRIBLE, and so far this time I just feel like "dude, I'm sure it would be fine, but if something happened I'd NEVER forgive myself - so not worth it."  However, missing summer grilling season with an ice cold lemon shandy will be sad! :-)
