Exuding Swag at the Pool: Confidence Shines Brighter Than Any Cover-Up

A confident man and woman at the poolside


Summer and pool time go hand in hand like hot dogs and hamburgers. But does hitting the pool mean hiding behind a white T-shirt for you? Are you trying to camouflage your body in a feeble attempt at being invisible? Newsflash: Your white tee isn't a 'fat invisiblizer'.

Delusional Disguises

Trust me, no one's being fooled. Instead of making you blend in, it slaps a neon sign over you reading "Low Self-Esteem Alert!" - and that goes for everyone, regardless of size. This is not a skinny vs. fat issue. It's about confidence and self-esteem.

Summer Swag

Summer is the best season to strut your stuff and show off your swag. Be proud of your body. The sooner you realize that your size isn't something to hide, the more confidently you can walk around, invoking the Shallow Hal effect on everyone.

Shine Through, Not Hide

Ditch the designer labels, take off that unnecessary shirt, and be comfortable in your skin. After all, swag isn't about hiding behind brands, it's about expressing your charisma and character.

Your Swag Guide

So, how do you flaunt your swag at the pool? Start with some stylish swim shorts or a swimsuit that highlights your personality - and ensure they fit well. Get yourself groomed. Back and chest hair? Shave them if you feel like it. And here's a Swagger Coach exclusive: get a pedicure. It shows your attention to detail and, ladies, it speaks volumes about how you treat yourself (and potentially others).

For the Ladies

Ladies, a white T-shirt isn't your best poolside friend either. It screams "I'm shy, but I want to show off". Pick a swimsuit that embraces your curves and flaunt that body with pride. Avoid going too skimpy as it can send off low self-esteem vibes. Remember, confidence is all about the packaging - how you package yourself will directly impact the impression you make.


In conclusion, the poolside is a place to relax, enjoy and exude confidence. This summer, toss that white T-shirt aside, embrace your body, and strut your swag with pride. Be authentic, be confident, be you.

Key Points:

  1. Ditch the white T-shirt and embrace your body with confidence.
  2. Your size isn't something to hide; it can only be dressed up.
  3. Choose swimwear that highlights your personality and fits well.
  4. Ladies, don't be shy about showing off your curves in a suitable swimsuit.
  5. Attention to grooming and detail enhances your poolside swag.

Shedding Pounds Begins in the Mind: Embrace Positivity, Dump the Negativity

Man struggling with weight loss


Facing the harsh truth: are you overweight because you're negative? The scales, doctors, or even your own reflection may have signaled your weight problem. But the real culprit might be negativity.

The Deceptive Comfort of Negative Thinking

Do you find solace in the belief that being happy with yourself means there's no need for weight loss? It's a deceptive comfort zone that I once fell victim to. But then, I discovered there's another level to happiness. To reach it, you need to amplify your joy and ditch the defeatist attitude.

Let's look at it this way: You're content with your reliable, but basic car. But wouldn't you prefer the luxury SUV if you had a choice?

Accountability and the True Cause of Weight Gain

It's all too easy to blame food for weight gain. But the reality? I held myself accountable. By doing so, I was able to unearth the root cause: negativity. It attracts weight gain like a magnet, accumulating everywhere it can.

This negativity manifests itself in many ways. For me, it was the thought of getting my money's worth at buffets, even when I was full. Eating more than needed created a vicious cycle of negativity.

Breaking the Cycle: The Role of Positivity for Weight Loss

Negativity breeds a mindset of scarcity, leading to excessive consumption. In contrast, positivity can break this cycle.

The key? Embrace selfishness. Ask yourself what you want and how successful you want to be. This positivity for weight loss starts motivating you because you realize that you're in control of your actions and outcomes.

Strive for Incremental Success

By setting achievable weight loss goals, you can maintain a positive mindset. Each successful goal will spur you to reach further. This momentum is key in reaching your ultimate weight loss goal.

Remember, positivity and negativity can't coexist. So, stay positive to attract more positivity and inch closer to your goals.

Your Happiness, Your Choice

In your quest for a healthier lifestyle, consider what makes you happy. It could be a stress-free job, eating only when you want, or having positive people around you. Your happiness will act as a beacon, guiding you to a healthier, slimmer you.

Key Points

  1. Negative thinking can lead to weight gain.
  2. Acknowledge that you're in control of your actions and outcomes.
  3. Positivity can help break the cycle of negativity and encourage weight loss.
  4. Setting achievable weight loss goals helps maintain a positive mindset.
