I never liked using powder. I typically used to just wear spandex yoga pants. Not necessarily recommended for walking on the street, LOL If you're going to be on the street, I'd recommend putting a second layer of pants on, but the spandex yoga pants worked great for me :)

Some tips from other folks:

"Extra strength Gold Bond powder. It has a cooling effect and gets rid of the chaffing. As you begin to lose weight in that area it will go away. I hardly ever get it now."

"I use a product called Body Glide. You can find it at most specialty running/walking stores." (from Coach Jen.)

No walking is part of my daily routine, get up have a cup of tea and take the dogs out is the first thing that I do each and every morning. I have only chaffed once or twice in my life time and usually talcum powder helps with that.

Stop walking and come back later.

I have had that problem in the past, powder and bike shorts or spandex helps. If you want to you can wear something over them.

I went low carb in 2004 and lost 100lbs, I have been able to keep it off, if I start to pudge again it seems to go in my thighs, as soon as I feel that I get stricked again they go back down. It's one thing I don't want to deal with again...ever.

Well, calling it a day was something....but if you could have done something else to keep going, would have been better, I mean like getting on a stepper, eliptical, so that you kept going.

I'd probably use some kind of emoliant or powder. Check on line and see what you can find that will help.

It isn't wise to be in pain. 10K steps is a goal but not worth your body's health. I would vote to resolve the situation and then work up to 10K.

I reached 7 thousand steps yesterday, and decided to go home because my thighs were starting to feel irritated.

If you were in this situation, what would you do? I'm assuming everyone here aims for 10,000 steps a day, so if you keep walking, you will probably affect your performance tomorrow..

do you
A) Call it a day
B) Keep walking
C) Stop for now, but return to it later in the day
D) Stop walking, but find some other form of exercise
E) Something else (please elaborate)
