    There is no better exercise

    for keeping in shape than by swimming. I go swimming almost year round in my heated swimming pool.

    Every day, I swim. It is an all round exercise.

    It is one of the best exercises.

    I swim quite a lot. Most nights in fact.

    Maybe being Pisces is the reason! I have a daughter who is Pisces and she swims too. She beats the socks off me in front crawl. But she can't catch me in breaststroke.

    The water feels so nice on my skin.

    It's as if I'm in a whole other world. I love keeping fit in the pool, but I also enjoy the occasional skinny dip at midnight

    I love swimming so much

    and so fulfilling and relaxing to me. I swim laps in my pool. I love our pool slide and diving board too. We always have other nudists over summer long. In August, we go on vacation to either Southern California or Florida or other east coast destinations to visit other...

    I love to go skinning dipping in our swimming

    pool, nude sunbathing, and having BBQs with my family and our many friends. Also, we love to host nudist parties almost year round with others.

    Go into the water.Give in

    and feel it surround you, you give in your weight and troubles to the water. Watch the sky as you do backstrokes or dive deep and resurface through the water. Pretend you are amermaid, take out your frustrations on your demons, free the sky and the energy, give it all up and...

    I love swimming and sunbathing

    either at home or at the beach on vacation. I have three sons and they love the water too. They are all good swimmers.

    I loved swimming since I was little.

    It works every muscle and relaxes you when you're done. It's a great way to spend your free time.

    I swim in the lake almost every day.

    I love it so very much. And can feel my body transforming continuously into a leaner, meaner, swimming machine!

    I love the feeling of water

    and I instantly feel relaxed once I jump into a pool. I also love swimming competitively, my favourite stroke is breaststroke. All your worries disappear underwater and when you breathe, you hear everyone chanting your name.

    Has anyone ever tried losing weight via

    swimming? I feel like it's impossible... and being overweight I need to lose weight, I'm going swimming (crawl, freestyle) 2-3 times per week for at least 30mins each and usually stay for 45mins. But it doesn't seem to work. In addition swimming makes hungry like no other sport...

    It's Been Years

    I love to swim. As a kid I spent every summer outside in our swimming pool, from morning until far after dark. Went through a lot of sunscreen! As I got older, I grew more self-conscious about my body, so I stopped swimming. It's been about 7 years since I swam anywhere. I miss...

    I love the pool. During summer I spend a lot of

    time at the pool. I would love to live near a ocean and spend a lot of time in it and on the beach but I don't. The closest big body of water is a very big lake several hours to the north of me.

    I love to go swimming.

    I started swimming at an early age. My parents made sure all of my siblings were trained in swimming. My siblings and I love going to the beach often for swimming activities. We had a family plan at the local YMCA. This is where we all took our swimming lessons. I am so...

    When in my in-ground home swimming pool,

    I love swimming laps and back and forth from side to side. I love when my kids are in the pool too. They certainly enjoy swimming between my legs and touching me. At home pool parties, I love to stand against the pool wall and chat with others.

    I sometimes feel like I know what it may be like

    for a bird, to fly and to feel the resistance of the air currents, and how its wings are like blades, how it can pivot and propel itself forward, with the whipping movement of its entire body.... Sometimes water itself feels almost muscular, the way it interacts with the body...

    Ahhhhh Swimming

    I love swimming so damn much. Its like one of the things that I do most. I am a super fast swimmer and can hold me breath for up to a minute and 10 seconds. I can dive very deep as well. I'm never afraid in the water, the water is like my remedy...it soothes my stress away...

    I did my first 100 fly yesterday.

    Incredible and explosive. I am in love with this stroke. That feeling when your arms clear the water with ease and symmetry and you know you are flying and you just caught that perfect breath of air and then your head dips and the body follows like a wave and arms extend to...
