Losing It

My mad, crazy journey to health and beyond

Things I learned on holiday. In Mauritius.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that I recently went on holiday to visit my parents in Mauritius. I won’t bore you with how fabulous it was, because it was – instead I’ll pass on some extremely important life lessons I learned while I was swanning around an island paradise for two weeks. These are now what keep me warm at night while I’m shivering in my blanket taco.

1. Life is hard.

15. It’s amazing the difference a little time and a lot of work can make.

16. And if you make healthy holiday choices, move regularly and choose your treats wisely, you can still lose weight even when you’re on holiday:

You know what that means don’t you? Two years on this journey, FIFTY KILOGRAMS DOWN, and only 15 more to go! I’ll definitely be drinking to that on Saturday!
