Splendid Supper And A Seaside Walk

Health warning!  The post I am about to share with you does not belong on a blog about eating healthily and losing weight!  I consumed lots of sugar and cheese and champers.

Last night we headed to Michelle’s for the annual girlies Christmas dinner.

I did enjoy it all but definitely ate way too much.  I definitely went to bed too late too so the sun rose far sooner than I would have liked this morning.

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in a small village in the beautiful Weald of Kent with my husband and 2 children. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. After all, I live in the 'Garden of England' so it seems silly to not take advantage of that. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
