Whew! I get off work at 4 so I got to the gym around 415 and the pool only had two guys in it, both older and out of shape like me :D Aaaaaah I was so happy! It really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, and once I got in the pool it was just me and the water again and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I also wore ear plugs so I couldn't hear anyone but myself, works like a charm!

I know the feeling, I don't even own a swimsuit because I refuse to be seen in one. I guess what I'd do is remind myself that I'm there to swim, not to look at others, and just hope everyone else thinks the same way.

Alrighty, so I just joined a gym for the first time in my life and today I will be using the pool for the first time. I used to be on swim team in high school, but that was 6 years and 40 pounds ago when I was actually fit lol. I'm SUPER NERVOUS about swimming in front of people! Especially since when I went yesterday there were two men already in the pool who were fit as could be :/ Does anyone have any tips on how to build up my confidence enough to do laps in the pool???? :(
