Deadline countdown

Holiday date is ever moving closer now! 7 weeks to go, I have come to realise that I will not achieve my size 14 wish... So I have now moved it down to size 16, to my disappointment. I think a lot emotionally had gotten in the way of my motivation lately, but now I've just got to grow some and just get on with it.

So I now have 7 weeks to try and lose 3 inches off of my waist and 3 inches off of my hips to be able to fit in to 16's (according to multiple shop size guides).

So with a target of 1-2lbs a week, would be 7-14lbs in the next 7 weeks.

I will be going more by clothes size - as to be honest at the moment that is what matters more to me - and weight loss comes with that.

Need the self discipline of the above dog!!

Think I may just wire my jaw shut for 7 weeks!!

The trouble with sizes is that they're never consistent. You can be a 14 somewhere, a 16 elsewhere, and an 18 yet somewhere else! It's all very confusing :(

I think you obviously need to just keep trying on clothes until you find something 14 that will fit! ;)

You're in the same boat as me, I'm aiming to get into the 11s before my anniversary high tea the end of October so that will be at least 7 lbs gone in 10 weeks for me as well. We can do this! (Without the wiring!) :D

Great picture!

I think shifting the inches also comes from exercise - so blitz it with whatever exercise you can do... good luck!!!
