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.

Good for you!! Walking is a great exercise and the perfect way to start - if you don't own a good pedometer, I suggest getting one - I like the Omron HJ710 or HJ112 - and keep track of your steps - for the first week or so, just track your ordinary walking level - then increase it a little each week or two. It's a simple program but one that can keep you motivated for a long time.

Have a good walk. It is good to start slowly and build from there. Taking a very long walk or walking too fast can cause pain and that may slow you down some. Build on length of walk and speed as you go. It is always a process.
