So, having hit the 46 pounds off mark a few weeks before my hols I was pretty unsure about this all-inclusive deal. However I worked bloomin’ hard to pay for it last year and didn’t want to cancel, and my husband would have left me!
My intention was to assess each meal individually, try to eat delicious but sensible things – so loads of fish, salads but no obvious fats. The problem was always going to be the buffet temptation and if I gave in, I was going to skip that pill out of consideration for other swimming pool users.
In the end, I did take a pill after every meal having managed to make every meal a reasonable one. I found the “take it one meal at a time” approach easier to work with than the blanket “I will be good for ever” approach which has failed me so often before. I certainly enjoyed every single meal I ate and did not feel cheated. I also went to the hotel gym every single morning after breakfast and did 40 mins fast treadmill/cross trainer/biking until I dripped.
The result? Bear in mind I was 19 stones when I started this and so I am normally far far from anyone’s model of successful restraint. Bear in mind I ALWAYS put on at least 10 pounds on every holiday I have ever gone on……..I only put on one pound in the 2 weeks. I am gobsmacked – just gobsmacked with delight. I had assumed it would be a half stone no matter how hard I tried on this holiday and was quite reconciled to that. I don’t want to count my chickens but maybe I am learning a long term healthier way of eating that means I won’t just put it all back on again.
Onwards and downwards!
