14959 was my Fitbit step count for last night. I, Andrea M username PoeDaughter, am on track for a Ten K Steps a day fitness plan for the Ten K Steps a day group on my profile. I did the 45 minutes treadmill walking with hand weights and 15 minutes on the fitness bike that is the normal amount needed for 10,000 steps daily. Ten thousand steps a day was supported by fitness studies researched by the U.S. Surgeon General (2001 and 2007) A daily target of 10,000 steps was first proposed. The target has been recommended by the US Surgeon General and by the UK Department of Health. Pedometer entry 2013 to be the normal step count amount needed to maintain and increase fitness, and is calculated by Fitbit here on the fitness section Sparkpeople site. I first started doing 10 k steps a day 5 days a week on 01/01/2009 as a New Years resolution and on a second profile for Sparkpeople in 9/6/2010 , and have not stopped any week in any year since that date. My group comments on my Sparkpage reach to that date, as well.
It is frustrating that when I bought a pedometer when I was younger, and did 10,000 steps a day it worked in just 6 weeks. It worked PERFECTLY well, unlike this year. Now I am doing the same thing, and even more and NOT getting the same results. Why do workouts work great some weeks and horrible others? There is still more art than science in the fitness world I must admit.

    I can see you are frustrated. Sometimes, adding calories for just a few days or 1 week tricks your boy and when you go back to your usual calories, you start to lose again. Another thing that helps some is to change your fitness routine. The body get used to something and then it is easier do and you lose slower Try that. TC
