This is really hard but here I am on holiday in 32 degrees and I am in a kaftan. Not a glamorous one that covers a swim suit but a long one with a camisole top underneath and three quarters length trousers. I liked the design and that’s it. It is plus size . Tenerife was amazing but being overweight I suffered in the heat and of course all the walking was hard because I had to lug all this excess weight along. My ankles were swollen and I felt very unfit and very fat. I had ten months since our last holiday to do something about it but I did nothing. I was in denial. I have been a yo-yo dieter for most of my adult life and have started diets most Monday’s and failed by Wednesday.
We came back in the early hours of Saturday and I weighed myself late Saturday and I had gained 2lb which isn’t that bad. I have decided to start me journey today …..
Here are a few snaps of our fab holiday (I will call them my before snaps) we stayed in one of our favourite hotels and we had a lovely ten nights and celebrated John’s Birthday while were in sunny Tenerife.
The hotel did this for John’s Birthday.
Fizz and yummy food
A tipsy me . Feeling the heat.
I am following the Slimming World plan which is easy to follow and is ideal for me because you cook a lot from scratch and you can eat loads! And you can have a tipple or chocolate bar as long as you keep within your syn allowance.
I haven’t done much exercise for ages apart from walking on holiday and I am trying to work our an exercise regime. I like swimming and we will be taking longer dog walks and I am getting a new bike .I am laughing to myself imagining me wobbling along on a bike.
If you chose to follow me I will be doing a weekly what I ate this week and my exercise log as well as a general chats about what I am up to but it will be mostly about my fitness journey. I am doing this and putting it out here because I will feel accountable if that makes sense. I am going to try to make some videos for YouTube too. Thank for taking the time to read this post. Feel free to leave a link to your blog in the comments and any Slimming World tips would be great.
See you very soon x Dawn
