So this week I got in the pool !
And I didn’t let the 272 pounds and size 24 bathing suit hold me back
Considering I was 417 pounds wearing a size 36 bathing suit last summer I can’t complain!
And everyone says that swimming is great exercise especially for the obese because it is non weight bearing which is really nice for those of us who may have arthritis or other issues to deal with
In fact it’s somewhat ironic that obese people feel the most uncomfortable getting in the pool when in fact they might be the ones most in need of it!
When you’re carrying an extra 300 pounds on your body then just imagine how much that is impacting you with every step you take
Walking in the pool does not impact you in the same way! It removes the pressure!
So I got in the pool with my kids and had a blast!
This is what we bought
Now I’m new to the pool and we were using these on our own so I’m not saying we were using them to their maximum potential 🙂
But we were having fun!
And the truth is that we were kind of sore the next day! There is no doubt it really does give you a workout!
My daughter, Annabelle, and I working out together in the pool !!
