Well, this is it. We leave tomorrow. Am I my target weight? Am I hell as like! The bikini will be staying at home this year and have opted for a less revealing tankini instead. It’s not all bad news though. Since monitoring my diet and doing regular exercise I have managed to lose 6lbs in the last six weeks and 7cm around my waist.
I also feel much better even if my appearance is not yet what I am hoping for. I think the sheer fact that I know I am doing something to tackle this is also bringing with it a certain degree of acceptance of who I am now. Things have changed. I’m a mum and have the most beautiful son in the world, along with a husband who genuinely seems to think I still look great.
Am not giving up though. After the holiday will be resetting the countdown to Christmas as there is a dress I am desperate to get back into!
But, until then, bring on the cocktails, milkshakes and ice-cream! Those 6lbs may not stay off for long. Adios amigos!
