I don't even think I could fasten the seatbelt on the plane.

Am 5'6 and 20st, it would not go round me would it!

Yes it would!

The only person that will give a shit about your weight on that plane/beach is YOU. The only person who you will do out of a holiday is YOU. The only thing stopping you is YOU.

Book it and go!

Airlines are used to larger people - don't let it put you off. Go and enjoy yourself!

GO for goodness sake. Life is too short. You will regret it if you don't.

Pishwife Tue 19-Jul-11 12:26:02

Go and enjoy yourself, OR ELSE.

sorry - that was a bit brusque put clicked post by accident (errent pointer key!)

If you think like that you'll nvere go anywhere. If you've that unhappy with your weight then now is the time to do something about it but not a reason not to go on holiday.

Power of positive thought!

Will be going with dh for a child free break. Have already lost 2 stone with sw but still feel to fat to travel sad

aliceliddell Tue 19-Jul-11 12:27:00

I have a (vague) idea this is against equalities legislation, so they'd have to give you a double seat if nec. Of course you should go. Don't let the body fascists run your life!

PotteringAlong Tue 19-Jul-11 12:29:07

2 stone is awesome! your DH wants to spend time with YOU, don't stop doing that

mymumdom Tue 19-Jul-11 12:29:54

Just ask for a seatbelt extension, the staff won't even look twice. I've flown at size 24 and had no problem with the staff. Don't wait to be thin to live your life.

Cosole yourself with the fact that THIS IS YOUR LAST HOLIDAY AT THIS WEIGHT

Carrotsandcelery Tue 19-Jul-11 12:30:20

Aww Nicola well done on the weight loss. Please go on holiday with your dh. There will be plenty of people there much bigger than you and no one will bat an eyelid. You are the only one who will notice and you know that you are doing really well in making yourself feel better about yourself.

You deserve this holiday and you should go.

Have fun grin

PamBeesly Tue 19-Jul-11 12:30:43

Nicola Go! If you are feeling so low in yourself continue being healthy and try to lose a bit more, the holiday will be good for you, chin up

CupcakesandTwunting Tue 19-Jul-11 12:30:54

Well done on your loss so far! You are doing the right thing by going to SW, so don't punish yourself by not going on a holiday.

whatsallthehullaballoo Tue 19-Jul-11 12:31:06

Yes you should absolutely go. You will get the seat belt to do up or ask for an extension for one. You have as much right as anyone else to be on the plane and have a holiday. Being big does not need to run your life.

You have lost 2stone - go and celebrate that and continue when you get home. Have a fantastic time!

Sausagesarenottheonlyfruit Tue 19-Jul-11 12:32:20

You are not too fat to travel! That would only apply if you were 30st+ and needed reinforced chairs and a bariatric ambulance to leave the house.

Well done on your weight loss so far, treat the holiday as a little reward for you and for your DH.

spookshowangel Tue 19-Jul-11 12:34:52

amazingly well done on the 2 stone i bet you look fantastic now get your fucking ass on the plane and get there and have a fab time. do you want to look back in 10 years and think oh i spent 20's/30's/40's/50's (delete as appropriate) so worried about my weight i couldnt even go on holiday with my husband when i had the opportunity, what a waste of time.that would be really sad.

CurrySpice Tue 19-Jul-11 12:37:11


And well done on the 2st! grin

JanMorrow Tue 19-Jul-11 12:40:45

You will fit on don't worry! My friend is of a similar size to you and flew with us recently. They give you an extender belt thingy if you can't fasten it up, most subtle way of getting it is to ask the air steward immediately as you walk on the plane, then the whole plane won't see them fetching it for you when you're all sat down. Ask for an end of aisle seat if possible, that way you won't be squashed between two people.

ThePathanKhansWoman Tue 19-Jul-11 12:42:51

Go, you will have a fantastic time, you'll look great after a rest, it will spur you on when you get back.Have a great time grin

GO - and do lots of swimming and walking and sunbathing (safely of course) and eat lots of delicious local healthy foods - salads, fruit, fish, drink lots of water etc etc . You will come back looking even slimmer more toned,detoxed,tanned and even more gorgeous than you already are grin .

To hell with other people - your DH and your kids love you and you must love yourself.!
