London Lights Shine Bright

Harvey and I had some fun today.  Fortified with a fruity smoothie for breakfast and having completed some chores, we headed up to the West End to do some shopping.  I am used to walking round London at 7:30 in the morning when it is peaceful and quiet, not the middle of the day when it is packed with people!

We pottered about the Seven Dials area and then wandered over to Soho and in to Ed’s Diner for lunch.  Not a healthy food choice but I thought Harvey would enjoy it and it was a bit of fun.Ed's Diner in SoHo We sat up at the counter and ordered burger and fries.Inside Ed's The burger was fine and filled me up so I only had about half the fries which were mediocre at best.Ed's burger and chips We strolled through Soho to Oxford Street.Soho Square Where we shopped and shopped and shopped.Oxford Street 17-12 Down Regent Street which was really pretty.  London is always a beautiful City but I think it is at its best with the Christmas lights on.Regent St lightsOver to Picadilly Circus.Picadilly Circus 17-12 Picadilly Circus advertising We paused for a break and enjoyed tea and cake.horse statue Piccadily When we were all shopped out we decided to head home.Cool Britannia We had a light supper, which we needed after the burger, fries and cake.  A salmon caesar salad which was great.  Enjoyed in front of the telly with a glass of wine.salmon caesar

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. 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 do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. 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. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
