Treading the waters....

Saturday, January 29, 2011

I haven't swam since I was 14. That's 4 years ago now.
I was nervous about fitting into my swimming suit, but I did thankfully but I know if I had put it on a few months ago it would'nt have....
A few months ago, thats's 20 pounds ago now....seems like just yesterday though.
I was nervous about stepping into the water, it meant showing a few of my close friends just how big I was...but at the same time it meant showing how small I had much more fitter and willing and able to try new things...
But it was good I'm definitely going swimming once a week now but I'm looking to go at least twice once I start feeling more confident in the water.
I know I have a long way to go about 20 or so odd pounds but I will get there God willing. I will appreciate everything I have while I get there and be thankful for everything I lose as well.

I will tread new waters and swim my way through the tides...

    I hate that we have such a fear of bathing suits because everyone should be able to swim and feel good about being active, not worry about looking chubby in the suit.
