Is this for me?

Hi there, I am thinking about starting LT after seeing a friend last week who had done it and had done really well. Like others on this forum I have yo yo dieted for the last 15 years with no success. As soon as I say the word diet the cravings kick in. Will power is not my strongest assett. I want to lose approx 4 - 5 stone in weight but I have one problem as a family we like our holidays.

I go on an all inclusive holiday in 5 weeks and would ideally like to lose some weight (1 - 1.5 stones if possible ) before I go. The things is I would like to eat relatively normally / lower fat foods on holiday (I dont tend to pile weight on whilst on all inclusive holidays) and start LT again when I get back to get off any weight I do gain on holiday and hopefully lose some more before Christmas. Not knowing too much about LT other than from what my friend has told me and the official website I am not sure if this will be possible. Am I just kidding myself that this will be possible.

Please can someone give me a bit of advice.

Hi Sue, 5 weeks is very "do able" You could do LT for 4 weeks and refeed the week before the hol (it's exactly what I'm doing at the moment)
You could lose a minimum of a stone, but more likely one and a half to two as you've got quite a bit to lose (no offence hun) Go for it!! xx
Hi Sue, Cathy is right, it is doable and could be the kickstart to a skinnier you by your hols. If at all possible stick to no alcohol, lean protein and salad while away to make the restart easier on yourself.

Are you going anywhere nice? I hope you have a lovely time - think of us back here in cold, wet Blighty!
