Hi all, havent been swimming for around 10 years but decided lately that it would be good to go again and get some exercise, so i went and bought a new pair of trunks and i should be going tomorrow. Just one catch though. I am petrified! I remember very clearly what made me stop going in the first place and that was because i got some comments about my weight whilst in the pool. I was about 15 at the time and a couple of stone overweight and...well lets just say teenagers can be cruel. Anyway, im still a couple of stone overweight but have lost 9 stone over the last year, so want to treat myself with a nice relaxing swim to get back into things. Sounds great but i am dreading exposing my topless body to the world for all to see, especially since the pool i will be going to has a lovely glass walled gym above enabling all the fit people to look down and spy on the swimmers. The walk from the changing area to the pool is what i dread the most. To make matters worse it is school holidays here so will be full of kids and teenagers. Guess im just writing this to vent a bit and see if anyone else has been in a similar situation.
