I’ve lost over 50lbs and am now a size 12 for the first time in my adult life!
I actually own and wear a denim miniskirt!!!!!!
So close now! 19lb to go to my new target of 51lb and 16lb to go to my original 48lbs!
I’m currently on a very strict diet,but am starting to eat ‘normally’ again in April.
At our church today we had a sermon about the environment and fairtrade.
I found it really interesting, as the point was that if you look at the way that we are treating the planet,we are just throwing God’s gift of a beautiful earth to live it back in his face.
In the west we are destroying and becoming greedy at the expense of poorer countries,and some beautiful areas of natural beauty.
I’m looking now at the things that I can do as an individual to change this. My first thing is that when I come off my diet, I am only going to buy Fairtrade chocolate or Hotel Chocolat chocolate, as they have their own Ethical Engagement policy in place which is similar to Fairtrade.
I LOVE chocolate, and this benefits me too, as I will limit my intake by only having access to these brands which I will have to plan to buy or make a special trip/order to get.
Also, I have already decided to boycott Cadburys as they are closing one of our biggest employers in Bristol – the Cadburys factory in Keynsham and moving production to Poland. Cadburys is supposed to be a British brand and should be made in Britain!
If theres something that I want to enjoy then I want to do it guilt free and make sure that other people are benefiting from my enjoyment as well :)
