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 :-)

    I was just mentioning to Bob last night how March 1 was the first day of Spring where you are. We are waiting patiently for March 21 to arrive. Too bad ours still will be with a few feet of snow and the threat of more winter weather looming. I just got my power back about an hour ago after another snow/freezing rain/ice storm yesterday and last night. Enjoy those flowers even more.

    I was also mentioning to Bob that you eat a lot of sprouted foods and sure enough, there is supper. 🙂

    • I have seen instagram photos and news reels of the terrible storms battering Eastern Canada and USA. You have my sympathy and Harvey’s envy ! We haven’t had any proper snow so it must be the mildest winter I can remember. I try to eat sprouts but find them an endurance rather then a pleasure as they are quite bitter but I hope the goodness outweighs the unpleasant taste. Alfalfa sprouts are easier on the palate but I like to eat a mixture.
