    Well done for putting the effort in!

    I have problems with my lower back and couldn't walk 8 weeks ago it was so bad, so I know how frustrating it can be to lose weight with an injury as it's so hard to do the simplest thing, I struggle at times to walk the dog. I've started swimming too and I'm really enjoying and finding it is helping my back!

    Hope you enjoyed your swim

    Good on you Nooles!

    I started swimming again 3 months ago, I felt very self conscious at first, but used to it now.

    The trick is NOT to look at yourself in the mirror in your swimming gear before you go! eek I remember thinking that people were looking at me because I am overweight, but then I thought hang on! They wont be looking at you lovey, they will be looking at all the young slim girls in bikini's! lol

    Anyway, I dont give a darn now, I am on a mission!

    Hope your swim went well, I quite like swimming but I'm a bit slow - in fact I nearly go backwards - lol

    I'm going for my gym induction tomorrow. I exercise quite a bit anyway, but thought with the winter coming I'm more likely to run at the gym than on the road in the wet and cold.

    I know what you mean about wanting instant weight loss, but we'll get there :-)
