I belong to the YMCA in my neighborhood. That is where I work out. They have all kinds of cardio equipment, weights, etc. and a pool. They also provide towels. The towels are the white, rough, skimpy kind you used to get a sleep-away camp.
Before South Beach, a towel would fit around me but it was always a struggle to keep it "fastened" or stop it from opening because it was so small, or because I was so big. Today was the first day I swam in a long time, and I had NO TROUBLE keeping the towel around me. There was even enough left over to tie a knot. NSV!!! (because the scale certainly isn't cooperating).
