Weighing in for the moment of truth

In just one week’s time I’ll be jetting off to Florida with five other mummy bloggers. There’s nothing like the thought of exposing your body to strangers to frighten you into dieting and so that’s what I’ve been doing, since April.


This morning I jumped on the scales and saw numbers I haven’t seen in over two years. I can’t tell you how good that feels. I still have a way to go, but I’m determined to keep on with it. I’ve found my diet easy to stick to and when I’ve had a ‘bad’ day or snacking setbacks I haven’t let it hold me back – instead I’ve treated the following day as a fresh start. I’ve also been doing more exercise (well, walking. I haven’t joined a gym, or anything.) And gratifyingly, my combats are now so loose they fall off when I walk up the stairs.

Of course I’m not saying nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. I still love chocolate and cheese. But to paraphrase Joey Tribbiani, my clothes fit a little better, I have more energy and I’m definitely feeling more confident about going on that beach.

    Well done Liz – its amazing what you have done. I know how hard it is to lose weight. I lost 41/2 stone two years ago and its hard to keep it off. I refuse to buy bigger clothes so just am careful what I eat. I hate moderation but try and practice it. I dont think it matters what you look like so long as you feel comfortable in yuor own skin and no matter what shape or size you are – you are a woman who has had kids – and for some of us our hips are never going to be the same again!!! LOL

    Gah! You’ve just made me realise that having planned an unexpected pool-based holiday in the last couple of days (for the end of July), I will have to make major cutbacks food-wise before then. Dammit! Why didn’t I think of that and opt for the Isles of Skye instead?

    I would so love to be going to Florida soon, could really do with a break right now. Losing those extras is brilliant, well done you. I’m sure you’ll look fabulous whatever you weigh. CJ xx
