I have been wearing a pedometer from morning until night since October 2001 when I was a part of a dairy diet research study. I buy my pedometers from stepintohealth.com. I buy the Yamax brand which is the one that is used in all the 10,000 step research studies. Make sure you pay the extra $2 for the safety strap. I move to whatever pants I am going to wear the next day before I go to bed. I clip it to the coin pocket on my pants if it has one.

Thanks for the link. I've been considering purchasing a pedometer, but it would be great to get a free one to see if I can actually get into the habit of using it. They're not currently accepting registrations, it said, but I'll try again soon.
I have a pedometer but do not use it anymore. I found that I was translating the information into calories burned and using it as license to eat that many calories more instead of using it as information only ! :)
I have one and use it. I count my steps when I am using the treadmill and the days I skate. I use Woman Activity Tracker under WomansHealth.gov everyday to keep me on track. I would be interested if we do a challenge involved with Pedometers.
