I just got back from holiday…the first proper one in 25 years. It truly has been the happiest time. I feel lucky and happy to have spent this time with someone I care for deeply. Hopefully I’ll share some photos with you soon.
Have started the day with porridge and toast and for lunch I’ll be making a wartime vegetable stew. I’m committed to losing another 100 lbs by continuing ‘the ration book diet’ (for want of a better word)…
The article did appear in the Daily Mail (click here – have just now seen it in the newspaper) and THANK YOU for the kind comments and support here on my blog and on my Facebook page. I couldn’t bring myself to read the comments in the on-line article as some people can be so cruel. My daughter tells me that she spent hours standing up to the bullies who left upsetting comments. LOL! I laugh but my sensitive nature just wouldn’t cope with reading them so I won’t xxx
THANK YOU to Sara who said a different article and a VIDEO appeared in the Daily Express (click here)
And another article and photos in the Daily Star (click here)
At the end of the day it was an exciting and fun opportunity to cook up some of my wartime recipes and get dressed up and I hope some people head this way and maybe take note of this simple way to feed oneself in a healthy and inexpensive manner. As you know historical cooking is my obsession…
And it’s really simple.
Eat lots of vegetables, walk a few miles every day, eat very small amounts of meat/cheese and bulk up on beans and pulses instead, and eat very little convenience food.
I’ve looked at the pictures and the videos in the articles, they did a great job but of course I see a fat lady still with over 100 lbs to lose…. I am a long way off goal but really, really want to get there.
It’s tough putting yourself out there open to criticism but I’m just ignoring the non constructive type. I believe anything is achievable if one works hard and is willing to keep getting up after falling down.
Thank you sincerely for the supportive comments and messages.
Lots of love
