Dont look at anyone else....I know what you mean, the getting to the pool and out again is definately the hardest.

Well done for being brave, that's fantastic :)

People can be rude in any number of circumstances, staring at anyone that doesn't conform. I get bad excema on my legs and if I had a pound for all the ' eeurgh what's that?' comments i'd be rich !!

You're really pretty with nothing to be ashamed about at all .. focus on the pool, blinkers on and go for it :)

Good luck !

I always used to carry my towel in with me and then put it in the locker at the very front so it was the first thing I grabbed when I got out of the pool to walk back to the changing room. Our lockers are right beside the pool so that was very handy :) If the lockers aren't very close to the actual pool, maybe you could so the same but put your towel on a bench/seat nearby. That way you don't have to feel self-conscious all the way from the pool to the changing area.

I don't do it anymore...I think 'to hell with it' now. If people don't like to look at my wobbly bum then they can look away. lol. I've spent years feeling very self-conscious and i've had enough of hiding away. Everyone else's legs etc are on show in the swimming pool, so now, so are mine! :)

Enjoy your walk and your swimming session :)
hey stacey... you'll be fine, just think about all the good the swimming is doing you and concentrate on how good your going to look in a few weeks. Swimming is one of the best forms of exercise you can do to tone up those wobblerly bits!!

Good Luck.
