Thank you for your support.

This indeed will be a challenge, but will take it one step at a time. My next hurdle is the emergency surgery I am having tomorrow morning. Won't have use of my hand to make my meals.

Welcome. You can do this. I do agree that there are no "magic" numbers you have to reach each day, but try to be consistent. I wear a pedometer and have goals set for the day. If I walk so many steps by noon, afternoon, etc, I have no trouble reaching my goal by bedtime.

Writing down my steps on the calendar really helps me see where I am and I have daily goals and weekly goals so if I have a day that doesn't work out, I can increase my steps during the week to reach my weekly goal. It works for me.

Congratulations on your decision to take charge of your health and your life! You are worth it! I also made a conscious decision at the beginning of this year that I was worth the effort and I was going to lose weight. I am 50 years old, and I figure I am in the last half of my life and I want to make it the best. I want to be healthy, happy and around to see my kids grow up. Just realize that you didn't get this way over night, so you won't lose it over night. Just take it one day at a time.

Before you start--realize you will stumble along the way.....AND THAT IT IS OK. The easiest way to sabotage yourself is to think that if you don't walk one day, or go as far, that makes you a failure. It doesn't--it makes you human. The only way you can consider yourself a failure is if you decide not to do it due to fear of failure.

Get out. Do it....and you've won 1/2 the battle already.

Life is the future, not the past.

I am new, but nervous attempting to make a promise to walk my weight off is a huge commitment. Stress has taken a big toll on my body. I eat to distress. I had joined the soccer team for aging adults it was fun, but I was embarrassed to wear shorts. I soon dropped out because I wasn't able to run as fast to catch the ball or to even touch it with my toe. I even had to get out of the game because on my first day I pulled a muscle for just standing still. I want to go back to playing soccer and having fun with my little girls. So I decided maybe walking would be the first step to a positive change. .
