Help! Don't want to go on holiday looking like this

I'm supposed to be going on a holiday in 5 weeks' time with some friends, but I don't want to go at the moment because I've let myself get really fat and I'm basically ashamed of how I look. Especially as my friends are all slim and I'm tired of always being the hideous blubbery one who tries to avoid being photographed.

I would like to lose a stone, more if possible and tbh I'll still have some more to lose afterwards. I don't really care how I do it or if it's sustainable, I'll go back to Weight Watchers or something when I get back from holiday, but I just need to get some off to start with so I don't feel so ugly next to my friends.

What really works for fast weight loss over a relatively short time? I'm 40 and have some health issues that mean I can't do high impact exercise. I'm also going through the menopause, just to add to it all!

I’ve had friends that have done something like the Jason Vale detox juice for 5 days and have lost about half a stone. It’s a LOT of prep, chopping and juicing endless fruit and veg but it’s also good for a short time for your body to get out lots of toxins etc. The other obvious thing is to drink no booze and throw away all biscuits/crisps etc.

Cambridge or any of the other VLCD will give you a drastic weight loss quickly. First few days are a bit hellish but it's OK after that.

I’ll second the Jason Vale juice detox. Have lost about 8lbs in 12 days.
