General Walking Discussion / Re: Losing weight!
« Last post by Mel on Yesterday at 23:33:25 »
I think plate sizes have got bigger over the years.  My Gran's "dinner service" plates (donkeys years old) are a fair bit smaller than modern dinner plates.


My thoughts...



Replace fast / junk / processed food with it's unprocessed equivalent (empty calories with nutritional ones).  You'll be surprised how much MORE you can eat and still lose weight doing this.


If injury means you can't be more active then reduce your calorie intake. 


Or, keep eating as you are and increase your physical activity.


Eat because you are hungry and not because you're bored.


... and if I practiced what I preached I'd be slim and fit as a racing snake so I'd best add that Willpower Is Required  ;D

That is a long walk photonut, especially with all the snow O0

We once took an "interesting" route up Bonscale Pike from Mellguards when the bracken obscured the paths and we fought steeply up through nettles most of the way  ;D

Pikewassa is the name given to the rocky tor I think, Steel Knotts is the fell itself. That is one of my favourite little fells, we must go and camp on it sometime, we camped below it last year it was too windy on the top.

Wainwright Winegums  :) Great report and pics, it is always wonderful to see peoples enthusiasm for the simplicity of the fells, the adventures that can be had walking on them, no zip wires needed, thank you.

Just a brief intro. I now live in South Somerset. I enjoy walking in the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Peak District, the Pyrenees and am heading to the Picos for the first time this summer.
