    Wibble...

    Going to the Metrodome today with a friends kids (well, teenagers actually).

    This will be my first time in a swimming costume in public for a LONG time. I'm more than a little frightened... But, not so frightened I'm not going to go and act like a kid on all the water slides! LOL

    I'll be ok once I'm in, it's just the walking about in just a cozzie that's that problem. Last year I swam loads in my friends pool but that's totally different to going public...

    Wish me luck!

    All I can say is WOW!!

    Had an amazing time, went on all the slides several times (not sure a 32 year old woman elbowing kids out of the way whilst sprinting up the stairs is a good look, but never mind!) and even did some lengths in the grown up section too.

    SwimmingCostumeHell wasn't as bad as expected either! I actually didn't look as horendous as I thought I would and although I still look far from attractive, I can actually see that I've made a lot of progress in just under 5 weeks!

    Definately going to the Metrodome again next week and think I shall take up evening swimming closer to home a few nights a week too!!!

    That was brave when you were scared of it Cleo - well done you, and I'm so glad you had such a good time. :)

    I swim with my children all the time and have never felt self-conscious, although I realise I [STRIKE]have[/STRIKE] had a lot of wobbly flesh on display.

    I got a fab swimsuit from bravissimo which has a proper underwired bra hidden in it, and firm tummy support (used to take some wiggling to get into), so I was always well-supported even when obese, LOL! :D

    My boobs are too SMALL for Bravissimo!! If they were as fat as the rest of me I'd be much happier, but sadly Bravissimo don't do C cups :cry:
