Thanks for the welcome.

Hoji, congrats on your weight loss so far and I agree slow and steady wins the race. I have a tendency to push myself and only end up injuring myself. Especially after I broke my leg my patience was short lived when I was given the go-a-head to walk again. It felt so good to be outside and walking that I would do to much. I'm back to walking around 45 min but it is not as much as I used to walk. Hopefully I can build up my strength again and go mountain climbing before the summer ends.

Way to go walking 45 min Trish.

Sometimes it is better to break up your walks into smaller portions, say 2- 20 minute or 3- 15 minute sessions until your body (knees, back, leg muscles), etc.) gets used to it. When I started, I had serious anemia and could only walk about 20 minutes at a slow pace (so only one lap around the mall) because I would get so out of breath. I only walked once a day cause that was all I could take. I slowly worked my way up to 60 minutes, about 9 or 10 times around.
You know what they say, "slow but steady wins the race", it's true, I say 60 lbs later and still going!

Hi, I'm fairly new to this team too and walking is about the only cardio exercise I do and really enjoy the scenery when I do walk.

Good to meet you and you have really lost the weight! Keep up the good work.

Make this a Healthy Choice Day!

Good Morning Everyone

I just joined will tell you more about myself later on today. I'm off to work soon. Looking forward to getting to know you. I love walking and will be walking after work. I have joined a few of the team challenges because they help motivate me. I'm going to try and stay on track with my food today because I have fallen off track. Have a wonderful Wednesday and may all your goals be reached today.
