Hi! Thanks for your nice comments on my page. Yes, I love the mountains. Well done on your weight loss so far and it's great to hear you are out of danger with the diabetes. Best Wishes, John 2552 days ago
Thanks for the message! Yes I love walking up in the mountains although sadly living in London I only get to do it about once a year. I went to Snowdonia a couple of years ago and climbed Cader Idris which was the first mountain I'd climbed after I'd hurt my ankle running. It was great to know I could still get up and down the hills although the fact I could hardly walk for a couple of days afterwards made me realise I needed to join the gym! The photo on my profile is from the Mamore range in central Scotland. This year I went to the Lake District although the weather was pretty wet! After being very fit as a runner about three or four years ago I got injured and had about a year of not being very active and putting on a bit of weight. I joined the gym last year and am much fitter now. Still a bit heavier than I was when I was running but I think I was a bit *too* thin then and I think you are allowed to put on a *bit* of weight as you get older! Either way I am not deliberately looking to lose any at the moment. Crikey I've written a book!
