Hi Kibbles5,

Nice to meet you. I joined this team a couple of months ago, and love it. My walking is mostly on the treadmill, and I'm averaging 20 miles/week. It's great doing the Land's End to John O'Groats with Denise. Please feel free to join us for all or partof the walk.

Let's keep in touch,

You have inspired me. Please keep walking. That's what I do now...every day. I gave up driving for public transportation, and the walk to and from the bus stop really adds up.

Keep up the good work! emoticon emoticon

Hi - I was 330lbs on Jan 2nd 2013 - I set a target to walk the 160 mile shropshire way by June the 1st 2013.

I started by walking every day. Today I only walk once a week but it is always over 20 miles (24 last Saturday) I don't have the time to get enough benefit from walking during the week now so I have moved onto other cardio to keep moving the Lbs.

But its only by walking that I could do this it allowed me to loose weight and get fit without getting injred or disheartened. I love walking now I cant wait for my saturday alarm to go off at 5 am so I hit the hills and be back in time to run the touchline at a rugby match.

I am still very worried about having to walk 20 miles for eight days solid - so any advice will be greatly appreciated.

By the way ive walked from 330lbs to 267lbs in 4 months - walking is without doubt the best exercise.

Have a great day and keep walking strong
