I have read the same thing, which is one reason why I upped my daily number of target steps.
Hmmm...perhaps you can try to add the other 2,000+ steps in smaller increments than your big 10,000 step interval. Remember the SP way - small changes are a good way to go. So perhaps you can just try to increase your daily steps in small intervals, say 200 - 500 steps increases? I find that once you work your way up to something it gets easier. Part of it is also mentally changing my mindset for a new goal, sort of like having a work day that ends at 5:00 - around 4:00 I may start to get itchy to go home, but if my work day ends at 6:00 or 7:00, than I work to 5:00 without even noticing it. If that makes any sense.
Hopefully someone will post something about this topic that it helpful ...but just moving more is helpful!
