A belated hi and welcome to the team emoticon

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Welcome. I use that time I'm walking with the dog as my time. I put on a book (MP3) and listen for an hour or so. It is my time and fortunately most of the time, no one misses me that much.

Hi welcome to the team. I have a Bodymediafit monitor which monitors my calories spent and walking really burns a lot more calories than I had imagined. I am trying to do 10,000 steps per day

Hello "Walking off the Weight" Team!

I'm new here to Teams and community participation. I am a mom of two special needs kids (one with severe autism and one with HLHS - a congenital heart defect). Needless to say, my hands are very very full! I'm also a choir director, have written a book on caregiving (The Complete Caregiver Journal Workbook) and maintain my TCC website.

Walking is my favorite form of exercise - I was very happy to see this team listed, as I plan on making walking a major component of my workout plan. My greatest accomplishment with walking was doing the entire Avon Walk (marathon and a half over two days). I walked every step and came in solidly in the middle of the pack. This was my gift to myself for my 40th birthday. It's been three years since then, and the weight has piled on - I was hardly slim to begin with. Now I'm hoping to reverse the trend in a steady-but-sure path to a healthy weight. My goal is to lose 80 pounds, but if I feel fabulous before reaching that ideal goal, I'll be happy enough, as my main goal is to feel healthy, active and energetic.

I look forward to meeting folks here and learning from you!

- Lynn
