Got out at 7am this morning and walked 1.45 mile - took about 27 minutes,
Yesterday - doing my chores - in and out of stores- then parked on one site of an intracoastal bridge and walked across - then approx 1/4 mile to the restaurant - after dinner walked another 1/4 mil then back to where the car was parked. Not sure of the total mileage - but my pedometer read 10,421 steps total for the day.
Felt great. Now off to the pool for some reading, relaxing and swimming - will also do some walking the width of the pool...
Welcome. One of the best gifts you can give yourself is taking time to build up your walks. Start with 15-30 minutes at a pace you are comfortable with. Walk in a couple of days. Build up, it comes quickly and you will be walking at your goal numbers soon. You can do this.

Like you I want to Walk Off The Weight - I am going to "RELEASE" it. I went to a Zumba Gold class this morning and boy did I feel like a Klutz....was told it will get easier - it was good, however the time of day does not work for me - so back to walking and doing exercises at home early in the morning - Walking W/Leslie on my way back to that.
Hi my name is Veronica and I would like to start walking and running again. I had an injury and that resulted in gaining weight. I am very motivated because after having a wake-up call when I saw myself in the big mirror, I decided it was time to think about my health and start losing some weight. I'm 45 years old and would like to lose 45 lbs.
