Four Days, Three Concerts

I have had a lot of fun in the last 4 days which is good for the soul but not necessarily for the improved health or weight loss I am aiming for

Wednesday was amazing.  I went to Wembley with 2 of my sisters and nephew Harry to see Coldplay.IMG_3173 IMG_3184 IMG_3190 I met Lucy and Abi in Zizzi at Wembley for a pizza and rather a lot of wine first !!  They do have a vegan cheese but unfortunately they also added goat’s cheese.  Having waited 2 hours for it, I picked off the cheese bits but it was disappointing.  Luckily the manager discounted our bill by all our main meals so it was quite good value in the end.IMG_3193 (1)Time to go in to the stadium.  So exciting !!!!

P1060770P1060774P1060777We had unreserved or pitch seats and we chose to sit.P1060776 The effects were amazing; at one point the entire stadium was filled with paper cut in to the shape of little birds.P1060779 Coldplay played on the main stage, an extended stage in to the centre of the stadium and a small stage at the end .P1060781 They are amazing to see live as they play all their hits and they also sang a tribute to David Bowie.P1060783 We were given wristbands which lit up and changed colour; this was very effective when 80,000 people were wearing them and waving them around.P1060787 P1060788 P1060790 And we had giant balloons to play with.P1060791

Thank you for coming they said.  Well thank you for playing – it was magical and amazing and fantastic.P1060792

The critics agreed.


I had lovely supper at Jules’ on Thursday with some of the local lovelies and on Friday I went to Bedgebury, a forest near us, to see Tom Jones.

It did rain for a while but then the sun came out.

IMG_3243 Tom was great; he is such a good singer and his band were excellent.IMG_3248 Thank you Marion and Colin for the ticket and it was lovely to see you both, Clare and Lesley.IMG_3252

Last night we were at Bedgebury again to see the Kaiser Chiefs.  We had a very enjoyable evening and the Kaiser Chiefs were also good.


Sally stayed with us last night and it was lovely to have some extra time with her.  We had a good start to the day this morning; a smoothie made with apricots, strawberries and bananas.P1060797We had coffee at Hartley Dyke and then it was time to say good-bye.  Lara and Harvey took their Dad out for lunch and I took mine.P1060799

Well, my Dad took me actually.  We went to a local Chinese restaurant in Sutton and I had a delicious meal of vegetable spring rolls, seaweed, sizzling tofu in black bean sauce, rice with vegetables and broccoli cooked with garlic.P1060802 I think 4 late nights took their toll.  I forgot to take my Dad these lovely flowers I bought him which I was so annoyed with myself about.  Sorry Daddy, but here is the promised photo of them xx

Tomorrow I fast and get back on my thyroid healing protocol.

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 :-)

    It looks like you had a fantastic time Zoe. I love the flowers for your Dad too. Bob and I had Chinese for Father’s Day as well. We went out to his favourite Mom and Pop Fine Dining Chinese restaurant that we had been going to for 31 years, Father’s Day. 😀
