Afternoon everyone

I started into hiking and outdoor pursuits around October, getting into things properly with mourne hikes in January.

Starting out I was extremely unfit and a bit overweight - too much weed, too much food, not enough exercise.

Things have improved immensely in the past four months, in January I was 12 stone 8.4 and a whopping 24.5% fat.

As of today, I'm sitting at a less than ideal, but greatly improved 12 stone and  19% fat. My fat weight has dropped from 20.2 kilos to 14.8 and my lean weight has increased by almost 2 kilos in the same period.

Looking forward to spending more time out in the mournes with Mourneman to improve my mountain fitness and keep things on track.

Great to be a part of this community and share my interests, definitely helps you along.

Well Done Ed! Keep 'er lit! ... Wanting to do a few of the hills around Belfast soon... Maybe start at Belfast Castle Car Park and see if I can walk along the ridge to Black Mountain... Keep u posted: in theory it's a good wee days walking!
If you're thinking... "wait this might be a bit dangerous".... you're probably on the way to a good adventure!
