Well, tomorrow I face the pool for my first morning with water aerobics. Mixed emotions, but I only have some of August to face this hurdle, so the time frame is spurring me onward. I have a good suit, which compresses my surviving breast nicely. Ordered it from Amazon and very pleased with the fit. You can still tell that I am signifigantly less on the one side without prosthesis to add to the size of the implant, but it isn't as noticable as it would be with a different type of suit. Not worth the price of a swim prosthesis just to use for this summer. Hopefully by this time next summer I will have had my reduction and matching surgery on the surviving side and this won't be an issue. So, I am just going to suck it up and go into the water aerobics a little lopsided. I will be in at "nipple depth" the class write-up says, so I am ready just to do this! Cancer has made me more self-conscious the past year in many ways. I am ready to be bolder and not imagine what others may be thinking, and let my worries about other's opinions make me anxious about something I want to do to feel better about the way I look.The eating has gone well, the walking- pretty well, but I need more variety. Doing water aerobics 3x a week this week, and 2 other free weeks in August will be just the ticket, I think. Not to mention helping to continue strengthening weak arm. I am blogging about this to help me talk this through so I won't chicken out in the morning! LOL The fact that I have a dental appt in same town where the Y pool is also helps...have to go to town anyway. Let's DO this! I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!! 😆😀😄😉
