WOW !!!!! again, double WOW !!!!!
You have both dome amazingly well with your weight losses,you will be climbing Everest next !!!!
Wow it looks amazing and like you say being able to do things like that is worth all the hard work to lose the weight! It looks fantastic x
Husky sledding is so hard work! Exhausted. But so worth it We did a 17km route, OH did about 10km of driving while I was the passenger, then we stopped for drinks and biscuits. I did 6.9km back, before landing us head first into a serious snow drift less than 2 minutes away from being back in the hotel. The dogs ran home with the sled and left us behind. Shameful!

Oh no we did lots of petting they are very hyper just before the run, but by the time you get back they are knackered! So it's best to pet them after!

Amazingly 6 average sized huskys pulled our sled without too much trouble (and our combined weight would have been about 36st!)
They are "domesticated" in that they are very well trained and know their routes inside and out, and follow commands, but they are very much wild at heart and pack animals. They are domesticated but not tame if you get what I mean. They prefer the company of dogs to people. But they love to work they get so excited when they are being harnessed up - like a pet dog when it knows it's about to go out for a walk!
It all sounds so amazing, glad your having a great time
Also you've both done amazing weight wise, its great that you can now reap the rewards by enjoying holidays like this
Aww Jezzi this trip sounds so amazing, had tears in my eyes reading some as it sounds out of this world! Just found this that so read from beginning to end and I'm also so glad you found his glasses, bless him keeping quiet when he must have been a bit unsure and scared! I have very, very bad eyesight and can't even get to the toilet in the night without my glasses so can empathise.
You both should be so proud of how far you've come and I know you will continue to get closer to where you want to be.
Enjoy the rest of your holiday xxx

We have had a mega lazy day today.
Didn't finally go to bed til about 2am last night, so we got up and had breakfast at 8am, then went back to bed until 11:30. At about 12:30 we then went to lunch! So done nothing but eat and sleep!
Off out shortly, about 30 mins walk away is the bridge over to Sweden, so we are going to walk down there and get some pics of us crossing the border. Glad we didn't know snowshoe in the end as we are both really tired and achy today.
Only activity booked today is a minibus trip at 9pm which will attempt to take us out and find some northern lights but it's been so cloudy this week we aren't holding our breath!

Lunch: went for a buffet lunch today to try and eat some more Superfree -
