    My husband has been going on for months about joining a leisure center near us and I kept putting it off saying I dont want to join until I will use it etc, I felt fat uncomftable and basically not ready to put on swimwear in public.

    Well we have finally joined and I felt a little nervous about going so I waited till we could all go together and we took the kids yesterday and had such a great time, inbetween watching the kids who are still young 2 and 3 I managed to swim 20 lengths, its a big pool...... and I felt so good after cant wait to go back again.

    Im going to have a training session to in the gym to find out what I should be doing etc.. and also look into the classes..

    Im so excited... x

    Im glad you had fun! I feel the same as you, but I have a long way to go until I will be comfortable swimming, one of the reasons I wanted to lose weight, to be able to do things like this with the kids.
    So well done;)enjoy it hun:)

    I love the buzz after exercise! I do hand weights every night before going to bed, and have just started using my stepper at home, and I always feel so good after using them. I'm going to start going to aquafit too soon, I can't wait!

    Good one Curly, love swimming and can't wait to get back into it. Tones everything up. Have you got a spa there too? I used to live in my old sports centre's spa after swimming, classes and gym. Body Balance is fab and aqua-fit is great fun.

    Let us know what you decide to do. Well done xxx can't believe you managed 20 lengths xxx

    Woohoo, well done you Curly, I hate swimming but am wondering if that was because I was fat, and I have been looking into all the leisure centres round my way and emailing them about their gyms, and I intend to join once I have reached my target weight or move to 1000 calorie plan, as I know I will lose weight more slowly once I start exercising as I will be building muscle.... so in my mind I need to get almost to goal first which is another 12lb

    Not to be underestimated, exercise releases the same endorphin in the brain as chocolate so next time you fancy a mars, get on the crosstrainer. Dont taste as good but better for the waistline :D

    Am so glad you had a great time Curly, I love swimming and aim to get back in the pool next week.
    I am lucky that our public pool is always practically empty late mornings, its great o be able to swim with no one getting in the way...
    Hope you find some classes that suit you, you will be so toned!
