    after 20 odd years of managing to dodge a swimsuit and the kids pleading with me to take them i finally plucked up the courage to do it yeeeeessssssssssssss!!!!

    i was sooooo proud of myself and was only a little bit embarrased at the sight of my fat thighs and stretch marks lol. but im so glad i went, its been something ive wanted to do for years but could never get the guts to do it.

    i think ill make a regular thing of it once a week, cant afford any more than that :D

    Congrats! Your much braver than I am. My friend has been trying to get me to go to water aerobics with her for some time now but I refuse to put on a suit! :eek:

    Congratulations & well done.

    I used to love swimming but too embarassed to put on a cossie at the moment. It's the waddle to and from the changing rooms I can't face. I'd be fine once I actually made it into the water.

    Hoping once I've lost a bit of weight (starting CD Sat) I'll get the confidence back.

    That's exactly how I feel too! We'll see...maybe once I reach my first goal I'll feel different. I bought some Tricords today and it came with a instructional dvd so I thought I'd try that.
