    No doubt everyone will be going on some sort of holiday this year.:character00238:

    So i realise whilst im typing this, that this thread will be coming back and forth into the main page at different times of the year as we are all going at different times, but thought if we could set ourselves a challenge to lose weight on holiday or at least stay the same or a very small gain.

    OBVIOUSLY EVERYONE SHOULD ENJOY THEIR HOLIDAY AND NOT FEEL LIKE-->:gen157:
    But if we all try to make some sort of effort it will help us get to our target alot quicker than if we take the attitude "oh hell im going to have a blow out" and piling on the lbs and throwing all your good work down the pan.:argh:



    So im aiming to either stay the same or if i do gain it has to be MAXIMUM 4lbs

    Wish me luck because im going in 3 weeks!

    So who's up for it?

    Im sooooooooooo blonde I realise what you mean now - doh! It would help if Id read the original post properly! Was wondering why no one was saying they wanted to lose before they went - was thinking it was cos you were saying you were going soon. sorry!!

    I wanna gain no more than 5 pound while Im away! But if I do then I do and I'll have had a fab holiday!!!!

    I've got two hols booked! I'm going to Menorca in 6 weeks half board for a week and Majorca in 18 weeks all inclusive for 9 days!

    My goal is to put no more than 3lbs on in May and 4-5lbs in August.

    Hopefully, I'll nearly be at target when I go in August! Looks like I've got a lot of hard work to do between now and then!

    Happy hols everyone!

    I see you found the text size function :p hehehehehehe!

    I am going away to Scotland next weekend - I was 10 st 11lb when I weighed this morning (first time I weighed for a whole week :D). My aim is to be 10st 11lb when I weigh in 2 weeks time on April 25th.

    I am also going away to Gran Canaria on the 10th of May but I think I will see how I fare with my Scotland challenge before setting a goal for the next holiday!

    Ah Louise, sometimes new carpet beats a holiday :) !!

    I am off to Dublin for a short break in June, aim not to gain anything as the Race for Life is at the end of June. Nothing else planned yet, but Italy is probably in the autumn

    Hi Guys,

    Last post before I HAVE to drag myself away from mini's to pack for my long weekend away.

    We have to be checked in at the airport by 6.15am at the latest tomorrow :eek: so I really should get a move on so I can get an early night.

    I have been really focused this week and been saving some of my syns over the last few days so I can be a bit more flexible on the weekend - so at the moment I am feeling reasonably ok about the challenge I have set myself.

    I am not sure if I will get much of an opportunity to get on mini's while I am away so I hope everyone has a good weekend :).

    I will let you know how I get on with my challenge when I weigh in next saturday.

    Cheerio for now
