Lyme Time

Summer isn’t summer without a trip to Lyme Regis so Harvey and I came down on Friday evening.  It was lovely to wake up in my sister Lucy’s beautiful house and know I had a family day ahead of me.   

My eating has been dreadful lately.  Stress levels are high and instead of being sensible and nourishing myself with the plant foods I know will help sustain me, I have been eating too many cakes and biscuits plus cheese.  So I am not showing you the huge amount I ate today but instead, here are some photos of a day spent with family.

It was sunny which is a treat for me as it usually rains when I am in Lyme.  Broadchurch fans may recognise this view which is  taken from the car park at Felicity’s farm shop.   It was the location for one of the scenes.  Lucy and I had a pleasant potter round the shops, looking for a present for cousin Miranda’s birthday which we were helping her celebrate that evening  

 A little bit of time for relaxing.   
    Hedgehog bread !
I took Harvey and his cousin Harry over to Sidmouth for the afternoon where we had a large lunch with Grandpa Ian and Helen.  Will these two ever stop major doing building building works to their lovely home ?
I seriously doubt it!  After being fed until we felt how a goose being prepared for foie gras must feel, I enjoyed a walk around the garden with Helen while the boys vegetated.   


  Busy boys ?

Helen gardened and Ian and I spent hours chatting which was just perfect – a long overdue proper catch up.


 In the evening we headed down to the Cobb.   

No trip to Lyme is complete without a trip here.


A lovely evening was had by all in the Harbour Inn with my sister Lucy and cousin Miranda’s family and Uncle Clive and Aunty Hillary.  A perfect end to a lovely day. 

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 :-)

    Lovely Lyme Regis, ……
    concerning the cakes, I’m the same just now…. There is something about September which can triggers a new start, a bit like January.. Perhaps we can start again with renewed purpose then!! Xx
