We Ate Cake

Did you all see that amazing moon last night?  It was so big and bright!  Unfortunately I managed to permanently delete the really good picture I took with the moon across the water but this one through the window gives you a good idea.

light of the silvery moon Harvey and I have not felt tip top today.  We have both been feeling a little quesey and very lethargic so we both slept a lot.  I had a small bowl of muesli, yogurt and berries to see if that helped but it didn’t.  Then we both slept until about 2pm.muesli. yogurt, berries The weather was quite extreme today.  Thick black clouds rolled along to replace the bright sunshine.clouds in Lyme Regis couds over the Cobb Then there was thunder, lightening and torrential rain.  rain at Lyme Regis I would like my view back please!

I just couldn’t resist –  I have got a lot of extra dieting to do when I get home!

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 :-)
