I have, last week, booked a holiday for 10th October, so obviously I'd love to fit into some size 14 outfits! (currently sitting at a tight 16 and lose 18)
A couple of months ago I took up swimming, but since then, have had to go through a very stressful break-up (managed to lose near 5kgs, but I'm guessing I've probably put back on since), so my swimming motivation has plummeted to 0.
My holiday means I've 15 weeks (around 3 months) to lose 2 dress sizes. Reading up, it seems to be around 2st, but obviously it may differ for myself.
I plan on getting back in to swimming 4/5 times a week - I usually try and do some HIIT type workouts in the pool, if there is room (whether that be through time or number of lengths).
I plan on drastically cutting my food, cutting all the ridiculous emotional eating I've been doing lately, cleaner eating, simple foods, going to try and stay away from prepacked stuff where I can and sort of adopt a semi vegetarian diet - mainly because meat is more expensive when it's from butchers etc! Hopefully cutting my calorie intake to about 1600-1800
Is 2 dress sizes in 3 months doable....? Is there anything extra I could be doing to help?
It's going to take all my motivation and will power, but this will be a lifestyle change, not a quick fix and back to normal after the holiday. I'm tired of feeling unhappy with the way I look and I think it will play a little bit of after break-up self help! Get myself feeling good about myself again and up my self confidence.
Ultimately I'd love to get back down to a size 12 again, but I think 3 in 3 months is a little unachievable, I'm already worried 2 is too much.
