    I'm building up my confidence to maybe one day trying out some swimming or at least some exercise in water ... Will be easier on my joints. But there's a big BUT in my head as I just couldn't do it unless i go to a fat session ... The thought of being in the pool with a crowd of celery stick nibblers would do me in!

    Does anyone know of any swimming/exercise sessions for overweight self conscious idiots like me? :)

    To be honest I've never heard of that. There are female only sessions if that helps. In my local pool we get all different shapes and sizes and from what I've noticed, the larger folk seem to be fitter than the slim!

    No person appears out of place in the pool to me

    Thanks drasim! I guess I'll just pluck up the courage and try it out - maybe when I've lost a bit more! lol

    I'm such a coward! :eek:
