I Loved Swimming A Lot As A Kid

Now I'd love to go again. Thing is I'm not so confident about my body (overweight) and I've become a little lazy. I'm also embarrassed about the way I swim. I like to swim fast and do the front crawl (a bit wrong so the lifeguards smirk at me) while everyone else is so slow and doing the breaststroke (which I find boring). I also like to mess about in the water (play at diving to the bottom and stuff like that) but I'm gonna be on my own most of the time so can't. D'oh!


I'll lose a little weight and go again someday.

Don't let other people stop you from doing what you love! I love to swim and am overweight, too. But I don't let that stop me! I also really enjoy diving down to the bottom of my Above Ground Pool and doing flips. Whenever I get the chance, I take day trips to the beach, too! So as outofphase said "Go fer it!" :-)

Then go fer it!

i also love swiming and would like to practise it one day.
