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 :-)

    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.
