    I can tread water without kicking with both arms above my head.

    My BMI is 24!

    OK Jen, now I cannot free my mind of a dog in a wetsuit. Thanks.

    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    OK a bit of physiology/anatomy! The human lung is the most buoyant bit of the human body. During exercise one breathes deeply and at the top of lung volume, until learning how to breathe best for that activity. Breathing in and out occurs at a variable place in your total lung volume, the further up the lung volume the more air there is in the lungs and the more buoyant you are, the more you struggle to get down the fuller your lungs become as you fight to submerge.
    There are issues with new suits but trying to overcome them is often self defeating. Take the lead you need but be prepared to shed it quickly.
    Best of all Relax
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.
