I am glad to be here, it definetly motivates me. I was so lost and now I am back on track. I havent tried the spark videos yet I am enjoying my walks. I am from Oregon so I think I will try them on a stormy day. I also walk to the store and take the long way around I havent driven in 2 weeks.

and welcome. The resources here on sparkpeople continues to amaze me and new things are always being added. I do use the video tapes and I find they are helpful for me--but I enjoy them and I think that is the key. Make it fun and it's something you will stick with. Glad you have joined us!

I joined the site about 6 days a go, at the time I decided after reading a few articles I was going to ditch the video tapes and started walking. What I was doing before was not working, for about 2 months strait I would lose 5 lbs and then gain 5 lbs so frustraitng and then I found this site. I tacked my weight today and ive lost 9 lbs in 6 days unbelievable. and yesturday I walked 2 miles and today i walked just a little further
Hello everybody : My name is Victoria and I have just joined the team.
I love to walk, but I mainly use my treadmill as I do very long workouts and I avoid the sun and need ready access to the bathroom due to my insulin resistance, so I prefer using my treadmill to taking long walks.
I did however take very very long walks in the English countryside when I was there last year, as there were barely any cars around and it was often overcast or rainy, which is the weather I prefer. I know I know, don't ask, I am a weird Aquarian, my name should really have been Morticia Adams, as I prefer the rain to a bright sunny day !
Anyhow when I walk I normally do 5-11 miles and when I use the treadmill usually about 150 or so.
Very happy to be amongst other walkers !
