Holiday Goal

Hi

Got a hol booked to Zante in September. I need to lose about 3 stone I've joined up to 2 step classes a week and overhauled my diet, I've got 17 weeks to get in shape. Wish me luck!!

Hi that works our to around 3lbs a week which is a lot to lose in such a short time. Not sure if that is sustainable. You might be better to stick to 2lbs a week which is better and you are more likely to keep the weight off longer term. Healthy eating is always better than a diet unless you intend to stick to it for life.

Good luck anyway and enjoy your holiday. I have been to Zante twice and loved it.

You can do it! You have a clear goal and plenty of time to do it well then you can go on holiday where you will not doubt put weight on then come back and lose that it again. Good luck, use the forum regularly as people are really supportive and what you put it you will get back!

Good luck, I haven't booked any holidays abroad for 3 years now due to having put on so much weight. Really miss them, just keep going even if you don't lose all 3 stone whatever you do lose will make you feel much better. Enjoy Zante
