Welcome. The dog is a great motivator. Once you get in the habit, the dog will remind you until you take your walk. I know mine does.

Making a goal to walk "most" days is important also as there are some days you cannot walk and to make a goal of EVERY day is going to set up failue.

Hi, I have always loved walking and have a treadmill, a dog and a walking trail, I consider myself very lucky to have access to the only tools I need.
So here I am with 10 to lose. I am 60 and weigh 160, funny it seems like I have gained 10 lbs every 10 yrs. I have to get serious and start going back down the scale. I usually do workout a minimum of 3 days a week but I don't seem to lose any weight at all. But now that it is summer, my dog Steffie is my motivator, every morning we take a walk then when I get back I continue to either do 2 or 3 miles on the treadmill or use a Leslie Sansone walking DVD. She is awesome.
This was the first week that I walked every day instead of missing a day. And my new goal is 6 days a week. I am going to read all your posts and keep my motivation up.
