My first hikes were pretty SLOW, and my hips hurt afterward (thank goodness for Glucosamine with condroitin).
Now I feel pretty comfortable going for 5 or 6 miles on a casual afternoon if I have a couple of hours. You'll work your way up in no time!
Welcome back to hiking :)

Welcome to the team! I agree with the others, just stick with it and you will see amazing results!

Fantastic Trish. Did you get pics?

This site is awsome. I've worked hard and sticking with it here, post as often as I can, and track everything. I lost 20 lbs since March. I just went hiking in Vt this last week, and wow, what a difference from last year. I hiked one mountain last year on vacation, and was wiped out for a week. This year I did 3 hikes in that same week. It was a total surprise to me.

I'm only saying this to encourage you. It makes a huge difference. Even 10 lbs made a difference in my running and abliity to do hills. so stick with it, and don't give up. There are a lot of people here who are willing and eager to help.
