I've been trying to go 4 times a week, and swim a minimum of 15 laps, which is 750 yards. Some of my friends and I started a weightloss support group, and that has really got me motivated to get back to the gym. They have also done some nice improvements to the pool at the Y and it's a lot more user friendly now. And I really enjoy swimming. I don't enjoy the treadmill. Maybe I will start to see some of the weight drop soon. I still need to work on my stress eating. It's a problem.
