I've been Sparking for almost three years, lost about 90 pounds, and today I did something that was hard for me to do even as a skinny preteen, and that was 40 years ago!


I put on a swimming suit - I still haven't bought one; it was 20+ years old - and got into a public pool in front of others!


And I didn't worry too much about how flabby I might be...


And I may just do it tomorrow, too.

    emoticon Good for you. I have seen lot's of really heavy ladies at the pool. and I am so proud of them for being there and exercising. I'm sure you don't look as heavy as you think you do. Just DO IT! and keep your body moving. ((Hugs))

Good for you!! I sure hope you go swimming again! I've learned that the only people who are worried about how they look in a bathing suit are those young things who really have nothing to worry about!

Enjoy the water!
