When I'm in pedometer "mode" I will track my steps every day. It was exciting one year on vacation where I was hitting 14K & up to 19K, both exercise and daily movement. It was very motivating!

I love the pedometer. I do exercise harder or longer to get my goal of 10,000 steps. It also encourages me to get off the couch and do something.

I feel like a pedometer is such a motivator. It makes me want to go to the gym and hit my 10000+ steps.

I agree 10,000 steps is an initial goal. I think you can increase your daily goal as you like.

The goal of 10,000 steps is intended to get you moving. It's about being more aware of your movement, and to help you stop being so sedentary.

If you get there consistently, it's likely that you'll see overall health. Where you go from there depends on your personal goals. Some people stay there. Others walk more. Others start running.

It really depends entirely on what you want. :)

1. Have you noticed a difference if you tend to walk a lot anyway? ( I generally walk 8,000 to 10,000 steps)

2. What happens when you get to 10,000 consistently? Do you walk more steps or do some other type of exercise to continue to improve on fitness/toning goals?

Just asking for opinions! Thanks!
