Few years ago, I asked my community center recreation department if there was any women only session knowing fully well there wasn't but I wanted to verify. I followed up by asking if they were planning on adding one in future. I didn't think much of it but a year later there it was on the schedule. Unfortunately, it was at 3pm on Monday & I have work than but I was very impress that city took suggestion. I am sure other ladies been asking hence

    Regarding size, I have to disagree with size 14 (UK) which would be equal to 12 (USA). I would think size 6 (which is size 8 UK) is idea .
    My local does have women only sessions but they won't guarantee a female life guard - I mean what's the point, like one man is not a man :roll eyes:

    About sizes I agree with neelu above.
    ‘If only I had done such-and-such, then such-and-such would have happened.’ Rather you should say, ‘Qaddara Allah wa ma sha a fa’ala (Allah decrees, and what He wills He does),’ for (the words) ‘If only’ open the door to the Shaytan.” (Narrated by Muslim).

In the UK, size 8 is literally only one size above size zero which is anorexic size. That is not ideal for over 90% of women who want to stay healthy, if anything, it is underweight and part of the unrealistic expectations of the female body size that is shoved down our throats by the fashion and ugly industry.
      How can size 8 be close to zero. What happened to size 1,2,3,4,5,6,7? Never mind, maybe I don't understand UK size. I assumed UK size was one size off from USA. Maybe not

        No apparently UK size 6 is the same as size zero. It was mentioned in some BBC show about the obsession with size zero. UK size 8 is the next size above 6. I don't know why the sizes go up in twos like that.

            ^lol I don't know about European clothing sizes but I've noticed the shoe sizes are also very different from the rest of the EU. Like a woman's shoe in the UK would be maybe a size 5 or 6 whereas in Europe it's more like size 40 or something.

            Cholesterol and blood sugar are measured differently in other countries too.

              hahahah the number of size doesn't even matter as long as you feel healthy and ARE healthy! you could look very thin and be healthy and you could look thick and be healthy. obesity is different than having a big size. obesity is a disease while big size is natural for some.

                    Oh that's nice actually. Alhamdulillah :)

                    and there's no ideal size really. since different races/nations have different body structures most of the time. most women from some nations are curvy, most women from others nations are not. etc etc. As long as we are living a healthy lifestyle (following the sunnah), then ideal size can take a back seat :D

                        Oh may Allah help you lose weight to become more active and healthy inshaaAllah. but know that it's a slow process. You can even start by simply walking more. skipping is amazing as well. can be done right at home. although a lot of motivation is needed then haha
