New Year Resolution

I started swimming at the local pool yesterday. This doesn't seem like a big deal but I don't think I've put on a swim suit for a couple of years.

So I dig thru my dresser and find 4 swim suits. One is so old that I can see thru the thing so it's out. Another was old but looked okay. And 2 were practically new. Both the good suits were the same size so I figure I'm set...until I try them on. One is just a tad to big and the other cut circulation off in my legs.

I wear the one good suit that is a tad big and it's okay, a little low in the front but I didn't swim out of it. My friend Mary and I spent about 45 minutes in the pool and it was fun. I did about 6 lengths of the pool and a lot of treading and kicking and floating.

Today my suit was still a bit damp so I wore the one that looked okay. It was fine until I got into the water and the last of the spandex disappeared and I had saggy bottom. Not that I don't have saggy bottom all the time but this was ugly.

So now I have one suit that fits and one that will fit soon (I hope). I did 30 minutes in the pool today and I can't wait to go again. I got a 3 month pass to help keep me motivated.
