But I’m too fat, too old, too unfit!

Me too!

I’m a balding, middle-aged fat bloke with moobs. Nobody cares what you look like, how old you are or your ability.

People of all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities swim with the groups listed. Everybody is too busy with their own thing to give a stuff about your spare tyre, age or ability. 

And if you're really bothered about what you look like then wear a towelling robe (a robie) down to the water and leave it by the edge for when you get out. Once you're in, nobody can see your body.
