Hi, Carol here from The Step Diet team, stopping by with a smile to cheer up your day!
Here is Brenda Willis' very very inspirational story of taking small steps, resulting in losing 140+lbs in 15 months, via The Step Diet. Pay close attention to where she says something similar to, '5 mins one day; 6 mins the next day'. YES. Exactly.
She has kept it off 7+ years and is a highly paid motivational speaker. One small step at time, one day at a time.
Here's is Brenda's story, this video is 2 mins 20 seconds, very short: www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqAItA-qsX4

The Step Diet is a safe, sane, logical way to progress from where you are, to where you want to go via baby steps, i.e. reaching 10,000 steps a day or more, but only increasing daily walking by 3-5mins per week to do so. Brenda Willis did; she lost 140+ lbs on The Step Diet, AND she did it in her mid 40s, AND she has kept it off 7+ years. She had been overweight most of her adult life, and always on a diet, prior to The Step Diet. True Lifestyle Change! April our founding team leader did a great job of setting up all the informational threads for the team, the whole program is listed in the threads; there is also a book you can order from Amazon, "The Step Diet"; I haven't been able to find it in secondary (used) book markets but a couple team members have.
This Lifestyle Change is about learning energy balance; how many daily steps equal weightloss, and when you're maintaining, how many steps equal a piece of dessert, etc. Welcome! Carol
