Okay, so I never got the chance to post again before I left for my holiday but the important thing is that I’m back now. I struggled for the past few days with “holiday blues” and comfort ate in an attempt to fill a void but I’m ready to get back to it with my first Slimming World weigh-in tonight for over 2 weeks… Yikes.

But let’s not dwell on that just now. What will be will be. Did I enjoy my holiday and indulge? Yes. Did I feel guilty for it? Hell no! And that’s how it’s supposed to be on holiday, especially after successfully completing four years of an intense degree alongside working part-time! I also felt amazing having lost a good bit of weight leading up to this holiday. I think that made a huge difference and I am so glad that I decided to join Slimming World just over four months ago. Remember that phrase? One year from now you’ll wish you had started today. Yeah. That.

I actually haven’t weighed myself since I got back. All I know is that I unofficially lost another few pounds just prior to my holiday, weighing on my home scales at about 12 stone 3 pounds. I already know that the main culprits were bread (I ate so much bread) and cocktails (I may have also had a lot of cocktails). Graduation is just over a week away however, so it’s time to get my head back in the game. SO NO MORE COCKTAILS (damnit).

Interestingly enough, a photo surfaced on Facebook recently which was taken in March, just a few weeks after I started Slimming World. I couldn’t get over the difference and it really gave me the kick up the arse that I needed to snap out of my “holiday blues”! Here’s me back in March (nearly a stone and a half heavier) compared to what I look like now:


I want to keep my cheekbones this time and I’m not going back to that, so here’s to moving forward! Wish me luck at my post-holiday weigh-in 😉
