I belong to my local YMCA and I'm SO glad I do. There are lots of people of all shapes and sizes there, and when I first walked in the door, I noticed that I lot of the regulars made a special effort to smile and say hello.

I was very embarrassed at first, but now, I feel pretty invisible. I swim laps for now and though I live in dread of arriving at the wrong time and finding every lane filled with buff swimmers in skin tight speedos, so far, that has never actually happened. In fact, now that I'm into my third month, I occaisionally am not the slowest person there!!

Have not screwed up the courage to try the personal trainer yet, but that's on my goal list...

If you found a place with a variety of people, I think you'll soon feel right at home.
