A Reasonable Start

I made a reasonable start to my Slimming World campaign – I lost 4 pounds this week.  I was pleased with that, especially after the pizza and wine last Thursday and the almond cake I ate last night and white chocolate I had today!!  I had been really good the rest of the time though.

I went tropical for breakfast.tropical fruit I brought in from home a pot of chopped mango, papaya and passionfruit topped with coconut yogurt.tropical fruit salad 2 It was delicious.tropical fruit salad 21-10 I also took a salad in from home.salad 21-10-14 2 Quinoa, chickpeas, celery, red and yellow tomatoes, cucumber, sugar snap peas, watermelon and a variety of leaves.  I am getting used to salad without a dressing to save calories but it was a bit boring.salad 21-10-14 So I bought some flavourful chicken to add.M&S chicken tikka This was very good actually, well flavoured.chicken tikka As a little treat to myself for losing weigh, I loved every mouthful of a raspberry and banana ice-cream.raspberry nana ice-cream Made with 1/4 of an avocado, 2 frozen bananas, frozen raspberries, 2 passion fruits, 1 heaped tbsp cashew nut butter and some almond milk to loosen it.  It was divine.raspberry nana ice cream

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 :-)
