Bikini Bootcamp – Weigh in #6


This will be the final weigh in!
Bizarrely this week I lost the lb I put on last week plus an extra lb and I’ve done little to no exercise and sacked off the diet completely! I have however been taking some rather unusual steps in an attempt to ‘firm up’ the body I am left with. I’m embarrassed to say I even stooped to wrapping myself in cling film to lose the extra inches. Now I’ve read all there is to read on the subject and am well aware that at most I will lose water weight for a very temporary period but if it can make the lotions and potions I’m smearing all over myself any more effective I’m all for giving it a go and even if it does absolutely nothing it feels like it’s working so isn’t that all that matters? So now I have just over 48 hours left and I’m looking for any last minute quick-fix going. Any suggestions? As of today I am fizzy drink free to avoid bloating and I’ll be cutting down on carbs until I’m lying by the pool but
I will be doing a follow up ‘get bikini ready’ series when I return so any other hints and tips you want to share.. leave a comment! Anything from body brushing to sitting at the right angle I’m sure will be appreciated!
On a more positive note I am very excited to finally be going on holiday.. the kids are driving me nuts!

      10st 1lb and thank you! I honestly think a lot of it is my baby weight naturally dropping off so I'm not a typical 'loser' right now anyway. I have another 10lbs to lose before I'm back to my pre-baby weight

    I think you have to either go for it, or the ‘you know what, I have a husband that thinks I’m beautiful and at the end of the day I’m not OBESE’ mindset kicks in.I have a friend like this and she just cannot get out of the mindset. I’m not trying to judge you OR say this is your situation, but if it doesn’t help you, hopefully it will someone else. Personally I’m the same height as you, and weigh a healthy eight stone. I’m a great believer in how important HEALTH is, not necessarily weight loss. Drinking two litres of water a day is essential, but at the same time, a small glass of pure fruit juice and a few beneficial teas (eg. green tea or nettle tea) alongside this is great for you. Everyone should make the effort to do a little exercise each day, even if it’s going to classes or the gym Monday to Friday and taking a thirty minute walk with your family after dinner at weekends. You’re probably in the habit of ordering something quite unhealthy when you eat out – MAKE THE MOST OF THIS TIME! It’s a luxury, take the time to find somewhere nice and order something balanced, it will be a great meal – just keep telling yourself it’s okay. Don’t stress about calories at meals, just make the effort to cook proper meals at the right times, and eat as a family -it should be social and fun. Just cut the snacks out. Have you tried dry brushing your skin? It feels fantastic, makes your skin look great, and benefits the lymphs in your skin and over time makes you look tighter and more toned. Just a few tips – love this blog by the way.

      You’re absolutely right, I’ve always thought why diet til I REALLY need to? But if I can change my lifestyle and generally be healthier the earlier I start the better!
