Welcome. Wearing the pedometer all day helps you get those steps. Most of us count our total steps for he day. Treadmill steps could account for half or more of your steps, but it is your total active day that really helps you become healthier.

I've been on SP for over 1.5 years & this is the BEST team yet. You don't have to push to get to 10K steps until you're ready, every small step is a step forward is my motto! Right now the best thing you can do for yourself is to allow yourself the time to improve without calling yourself a failure. Failure is only when you refuse to try - you joined SP, you are trying & you joined this team, you are trying - give yourself a pat on the back & take 1 small step forward. You are worth it - you deserve good health!
Welcome to the team!

Be careful when you pass judgement on another. Life teaches us lessons in harsh ways when we are mean to others.
Welcome to the team! I have discovered that joining some teams and trying to be active in them has helped me quite a bit. At least it keeps me on SparkPeople more than Facebook, lol, and being here on SparkPeople more at least helps keep my health at the forefront of where I spend my time. And don't worry about not being able to do 10,000 steps yet ... start where you are, do what you can, and move on from there :) Have a great day!
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. Plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.
I've been a SP member for awhile, but never really an active participant. This could be why I keep falling off the "wagon" lol
Anyways, I do most of my walking on the treadmill... but 10,000 steps ... I've only made it to a little over 3000. I once tried the "Couch to 5K" program but never made it. Fail, fail, fail! I am soooo tired of this body!
Okay enough rambling, and hello everyone!!
Sacrifice is giving up something good to attain something GREAT.
