Welcome. You are off to a great start when you love to walk. My suggestion is to make sure you don't cause any harm by wearing your pedometer around a few days and find out where your "normal" number of steps are and increase walking by 200 or so steps/day each week until you are at your goal.
I know when I go too fast at the start, I can cause shin splints and other painful things and have to back off and let things heal.

In the past have had some problems with my left foot, but right now all´s go for a new start. I want to lose 40+ lbs, and will put on my pedometer again and get those 10,000 steps tomorrow. Am thrilled to find this group and plan to be active! Happy New Year everybody from Spain!
