Non Scale Victories | Getting Healthy

So I am 6 months into this whole weight loss thing and today I experienced a helluva non-scale victory. There is a beautiful waterfall in Ambleside called Stock Ghyll Force and today on a visit to the Lakes we decided to climb up to it. The walk is up a series of stone steps and last time we visited was when our lovely friend Elizabeth visited us from the US in October 2015. I was almost 3 stones (42lbs) heavier back then and I didn’t make it to the top. As evidenced in this vlog:

But today I felt like a new woman! I practically sprang up the hill and it really didn’t feel like that much of an effort! I was breathing a little heavier in the steeper bits, but honestly, I did it no trouble! We took lots of photos of course, including this Insta of me reaching the top!

We also had a chance to try out the camera on M’s new iPhone X. As you can see, it’s pretty awesome. I especially like the selfie in front of the waterfall.

Today was a pretty epic day! G x
