Hi everyone... I became a walker a few years ago after a back injury. I used to be a runner. I am finally falling in love with walking. I used to run halfs now I walk them. I love it. I feel better and I am more consistent. My next big goal is to walk a full marathon.

This team looks a good fit for me, too. I thought I walked quite a bit, but looking around here, Wow!
My commute includes 4k round trip and I have to walk on the job, too, so it's easy to make it into a workout by just doing it a bit more briskly than is comfortable.
I'm fitting in as much stair climbing as I can and avoiding lifts because there are plenty of stairs on the way to work and at work. Before, I'd take the lift to go up just one floor sometimes.
I'm getting a year off work next year. I always get heavier and sluggish during school holidays, so I've got to make this into a habit or things could get ugly.

Hi Everyone! I'm Stephanie (Steph) and have "learned" to love walking ... we adopted this sweetheart Schitsu(?)/something mix a "few" years ago and he definitely needs daily exercise other than snacking! Like me!!! His walks tend to be only about 1/2 hour bouts, though, so I dance and march around the house & yard a lot. I do love the outdoors and have noticed myself outside more than inside, weather permitting.
I'm looking forward to meeting you all and sharing ideas, new tips, etc.
Wishing you all a gloriously healthy and exciting day.

Hi Cindie here. As far back as high school, I have loved to walk and it has been my first choice in exercise. I speedwalk for an hour everyday 7 days a week, well, when I'm healthy. I like to lead an active lifestyle, but sometimes health problems get in the way. I just love to lace up my Shape Up Sketchers and grab my Musicplayer and GO!!! It's my fun time and stress relief.WALKING ROCKS!!!!

Hi! I'm Trish from Ohio. I'm married, have 6 children and 13 grands. I work full time at a very sedentary job. I'm dedicated to achieving my fitness and health goals and walking is a big part of that. I typically walk three to four days a week, about 2.6 miles. My goal is three times the local park loop of 1.2 miles four times a week.
No matter how slow you go, you're still lapping everyone on the couch.

Hello. My name is Sara. I'm 27 y/o, live in Arkansas, in a relationship and have no kids. I weigh 319 lbs and I really wanna work hard to lose it, but I have very low self esteem. Most of my friends are online and I hardly ever get to talk to any of them. So I turned to this site hoping to make new ones and find amazing support.

Tell me more about your goat milk soaps. Do you ship? Do you have a website?

Well, hello there, fellow walkers. I'm a disaster waiting to happen on any kind of gym equipment so I find that walking is really the best exercise for me. I've slipped in my regular schedule the last few years, but can typically walk for up to an hour at a time. I walk 10 minutes to work and 10 minutes back four days a week, so that's a pretty good minimum.
I'm slowly getting back into walking while, at the same time, I'm dealing with overall tired-ness (I'm an insomniac, hard-wired into the brain, alas) but more of one should hopefully lead to less of another!
Looking forward to hearing from you and finding out how you're enjoying your walks.

Hello all!! My name is Nicole and I just joined the team. I am a 30 y/o (well, will be on the 30th this month) single mother, a student, and an amateur blogger.
I have about 100 lbs to lose and my first goal is about 14 by Halloween. I first started my journey, this time around, at 246 and am down to 236.4. Now I need to keep the motivation going and keep myself moving forward as I have stalled out a bit.

Hello all! I am Sherrie and have been back on SP now for about a month. Walking is my exercise of choice and I love to do it outside as much as possible. I don't have a treadmill so if I have to stay in I will walk with the Leslie Sansone DVD's.
Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Howdo ... I am new to SP and still learning how all the gadgets work.
I have lost a million pounds over the years ... but this is the time I will success at losing 100 pounds and not finding it again.
Day 3 and I have walked on my treadmill each day for 28 minutes using the Chris Powell interval intensity method. Today was actually easier to do.
Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass... it's about learning how to dance in the rain.

I've always enjoyed walking, but I will admit that I don't walk or move around as often as I should! I am here in hopes of finding some motivation and support to help keep me moving!
Have a great day!!

This is your journey. Take the wheel and drive!
Being overweight and out-of-shape is hard. Being lean and in-shape is hard. Choose your hard.
