Down 30 kilos thanks to #ClimateChange

I’ve noticed a trend

I keep the weight off through good habits and changes to my diet to better my health issues

But for the last 3 summers, France has had intense heat waves and virtually no air conditioning

It has been so hot that I’ve been forced into fasting because the thought of anything but fruit and water would make me feel sick

Or I had no appetite at all and no awareness of the passage of time

The fact that it was too hot to drive safely and that anywhere you went was hot and offered vitally no escape from the heat…

The fact that almost weekly I was posting pictures on Instagram, showing the “in the shade” temperature, a few minutes in full sun temperatures vs what weather channels were reading for my area and me ranting at the bullshit numbers on the websites

The intense heat is a dangerous risk to my brain due to my cerebral vascular issues

So I’ve had to be smart and I love how something good came from the literal suffering I’ve been through during the last 3 summers

I’ve lost 30 kilos, roughly 65 lbs and kept it off

I can’t be as active as I want and due to family trauma in February, I have virtually no local friends to go out and have fun exercise with

But I’m getting stronger and I’m proud of the choices I’ve made with what I’ve been given
