I fully agree with Kay --- tell him this is so contrary to what you want and need, that you won't be going, and ask him to cancel it. He should never have invited other people to join the family holiday planned, without discussing it with you, first. If he wont take your feelings into consideration, and refuses to budge, then let's hope he enjoys his holiday alone with them, while you and your child have a quiet and pleasant time somewhere else, on your own.
That said, You both should have communicated more fully and frankly with each other, to be sure you both were aiming at the same holiday. ust as you feel insecure with the other folks around, maybe he feels insecure without them. And as Sue says, you have 11 months in which to see a counsellor and work on your body image, and to join a gym and work on your body. In the end, you might find that you'd enjoy having some others around --- but that needs to be a joint decision.
