Chickie I'm glad I'm not the only one who tries that sort of stuff. Now that I know my siting still burn is 1.4, I figure if I move in the pool it must be at least 2.8 - but it's hard to say for sure. So long as the weight keeps coming off, I guess that's a good sign.
Ellie - We used to have an INTEX pool like that but husband hasn't put it up yet this year. I have a few friends with inground pools and I've been lucky enough to be invited at least 3x a week to swim with someone. I just spent the last 2.5 hours in a friends pool - treading water mostly - or holding onto the side and kicking my legs. I wish we had our own pool - I'd love to get up before kids - and heck go out again after they'd gone to bed!
