Tawnybird, you can walk now to keep weight gain under control. In fact, walking 4 or 5 times a week will help you have an easier labor. It could mean a much easier labor. I know--6 kids :) How about a walk with hubby after dinner? Ask him to help you commit to walking. On days he isn't there, take a walk by yourself or with a friend. It's autumn--the BEST time for walking!

Congrats on your marriage and baby! emoticon

What is the problem with your foot? Have you seen a doctor? I've had much trouble this year with plantar fasciitis, but thanks to certain shoe inserts, it is gone. I've been pain-free for quite a while, no matter how far I walk.

Hope you feel better so very soon!

Today was a great day for a walk: sunny, comfortable (high of 71), and my daughter to walk with. It was hard with 2 day old blisters, but I did it-5 miles. Tonight, strength and flexibility.

Hope you all are doing well today. I'm here to walk and walking is what I've done. My plan is 3 miles / 3 times a week. First two weeks worked fine, and I'm in the middle of the third week. Keep putting one foot in front of the other.

Hi everyone. I've read through a bunch of the posts for this thread, but oh gosh, responding to them all seems next to impossible with as tired as I am. I'm new, too, and walking is my main way of exercise. There are other things I like to do, too, but walking is best for me. After disc surgery there are some things I've been banned from: running, any kind of jumping/high impact activity, and lifting nothing over 20 pounds. Still, there are so many things left I can do.

One of you mentioned a step counter. Have you found a good one?

Have any of you tried the Gruve? How did it work for you?

I walked for 95 minutes today and am very tired, so this is all for now. WARNING: I can write long posts!

Check in tomorrow.

Hi. I am really new to this team and am just about to start to do some walking. I will not be anywhere near what other's I have seen have posted but I will be walking for 10 minutes 6 days a week. I broke my leg 2 years ago and have been sitting ever since. I am obese and very weak at walking so it will take me a while to build up some muscle. This team looks like a good fit for me.

Darlene. I have to ask that you refrain from a bible study on this thread. I cannot take part here if it does . Many thanks

I'm so glad that all of you responded on this team. I thought I was the only one here. Now you guys got me going on a walking spree that I'm going to walk to the store and back and walk on the treadmill.
Lets keep this team going and if there is anything you guys like to know about me just let me know and I'll be happy to tell you.

How about posting our walk once a week and see how we did on that week.

I was on vacation for a week and did a LOT of walking. We visited 4 or 5 state parks and hiked an hour on the trails. Outside of our motel was a bike trail, and we walked every morning/evening. Plus, a LOT of walking around the towns.

Now that I'm back, I did walk yesterday. I wish I could have walked today, but it's raining. Lot of stress at work...Just wish my migraine would go away, going on 2 days. If tomorrow is the same, I'm calling in sick. I sure don't want to check my blood pressure, it will probably go to the roof!

Have a good evening.

Yes, we most certainly are walking!

Where are we?

Darlene, we're busy living up to the name of our team -- Walking off the Weight. We're probably busy walking. I know I walk almost every day and it has (along with diet change) shown results enough that people have noticed and positively commented.

Have a blessed day too!!

Where are you cause I got some good news to tell you. First of all my mom and I are talking now instead of fighting and this morning I check on line in my bank account and my SS was there so I have to pay bills and get things out of lay away at K-Mart and a few grocers and now I'm a happy camper. Praise God for coming throw when I need it.
Have a blessed day.

Good morning Darlene,
You had said, something about plans & a mobile home is why I asked what I did. Glad you are able to help her. Look up dissiness & blackouts on the computer & put natural cures for each one. Dose she drink lots of pure water? She needs to drink atleast 8 glasses of water a day. Check her blood pressure?
You will need to ask the team leader, about using the site for anything religous.
Have a nice day,
Irma

My mom will be living with my brother until the day the Lord calls her home.
Anyway last night I was rubbing my mom legs and feet when I saw a fly and that is the one that woke up my mom yesterday morning so I killed him and now she is still sleeping and I'm glad so she can have the rest that she needs. She is 82 and get tired to quickly and just the little things makes her tired so that is why we have to watch her and she also get dizzy and blacks out some times and we are here for her.
I better go and get another cup of coffee and take my meds. Talk to you later.

Just think I'm the leader of this group and so far I love it. We can get this team going and running it smooth. And maybe have a Bible study on this thread. What do you think and let me know. emoticon

Hi Darlene,
The best thing to do is just pray. Some people will say anything to get money, from someone. I, too will pray. Is your mother, going to be living in a mobile home on your brother's new place & he is having a house built for hiself? Enjoy Yourself as much as you can.

Today I'm at my mom's place while my brother is at the new property. I was doing allot of things around here. I even have a job of cleaning out the duck cage and the cats that my mom does when Mike is here.
The cats are my mom's job but when I'm here I do it for her so she can relax cause she can't see anymore put she knows the routine but when they move in the new trailer she will have to learn all over again. Then I just found out that the people from the County City Building lost the plans and that's another 10,000.00 down the drain cause they lost the other one and I know that my brother will blow his stack. Deep down in side my heart I know they have the plans. Like my ss money they didn't send it to me again so my daughter will have to call them for me since I'm here at my mom's To me they are a bunch of morons here in Washington State. Better get going I still have the ducks cage to do.

It is bad when the electricity goes of for any reason, when it is hot. When it happened here I was able to go to some friends, where the storm, that put my elecricity off, did not bother them.
I was glad, they were willing to come get me & take me to their place for the night. If they hadn't been home, I would have tried some others.
Have a nice day,
Irma

This morning the lights went out and I thought it was 9 but it turned out to be 6 instead. I also found out the transformer caught on fire and they don't know how it caught on fire but the lights are on now.
My back is hurting and I'm not going on the treadmill today I'm just going to take it easy.

Good morning, Everyone.

Walking is my favorite and primary exercise. I've slacked off during the hot and humid days of summer, since I do my walking outside. Now I am looking forward to getting back to a more regular walking schedule and have already purchased a new pair of walking shoes to kick off my new start.

Sending wishes your way for a beautiful day!

I decided to start all over and now planning to walk everyday for at least 10 minutes. My eventual goal for this year is to walk 27 miles per week.

It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward. How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done. Now, if you know what you're worth, then go out and get what you're worth. But

If I could have some water waist deep to walk in everyday, I would be happy. Doing water exersices is the easiest way to loose weight, I did it once that way.

I went to walk on the track field today and a peewee football team came to practice at the beginning of my walk. Mothers,fathers, and people everywhere and it was very distracting. I realize I like to be in my own zone without a lot of people around and when I workout, that's my time so tomorrow i am starting a new plan and challenge myself to get up early and walk vs in the late afternoon.

Hi Toni,

I will start walking a lot every day, until I can get a car. I am not to walk on cement & pavement, but it is better then riding the city bus. Will ride the city bus some of the way back.

It's been awhile since I have been on this page. But I have been walking for several months now doing about 2-3 miles several times a week. Also adding in some strength training. I am losing weight and inches. Had some great motivation recently, finding out that smaller clothes are starting to fit. This totally gave me the boost to keep walking. Slow and easy is the way to go!!!

Hi Darlene,
Glad you are better. It is so very hot here. The most walking I have done, is to the garden to water the plants & then back in the house, where the fan is on, but blows hot air. Glad when I can go in the bedroom, where there is an air conditioner at night. Can't sleep with just a fan at night. emoticon emoticon

Good morning Darlene,
If your granddaughter is on the computer, just say please. If it is your computer, all you should need to do is tell her, you need to use your computer & she should just get up & let you use it. If she dosen't, then someone has failed in teaching her to respect her elders.

I did what I wanted to do yesterday in the morning on the treadmill and in the afternoon so I got a good workout. This morning I'll be doing Leslie's dvd and take a shower and get ready for my surgery. I'll tell you when I get home if my granddaughter lets me on here.

Hi Darlene,
Sorry you have to have surgery on your finger. Until it heals, just do hunt & peck. It is the way I do it all the time. I know how to do it the right way, but it hurts my wrist. emoticon

Hi Darlene,
I walked to the bus depot, because I had to go across the city. The when I got back to the bus depot, I walked home. Stopping several times to rest, the bus jars my back to much.
Need to get a place in the country soon!

This morning I watered everything really good & will the next three days, as it is to be 100+*.
So the only thing I will be doing for the next three days is the watering & nothing else. Walked about 4 miles yesterday, the high was 98*, walked that far because I had to go somewhere to meet someone.

Hi,
Sorry to hear about your bad accident. I was hit 15 years ago next month. You just have to take it slow & walk when you are able. Thank the Lord, that He let you live, He has something for you to do for Him. I have a few pounds to loose myself. Hope to loose about 10 of them, by the end of summer. Would like to loose all the extra weight by the end of the summer.
Watch what you eat, this time of year there are lost of fresh vegetables. Most of which you can eat raw, if you know anyone who has a garden, that would be willing to share with you or get some from a vegetable stand.
I have planted a garden this year in pots.

Hey Everyone! I know its been a while since I have been on and I do apoligize for that. I had an accident back in Jan. I was walking one night a little farther than I had gone before and on my way home I had to cross a fairly busy street. I followed the little walking sign but someone ran the red light hitting me directly going about 50mph. I was lifeflighted to the hospital and spent 5 days on life support. I ended up breaking both legs in several spots, cracking my pelvis in half, damaging the legements in my neck (I wore a halo thing) and breaking an elbow. I also had some major skin graphs done on both legs. I spent the last few months in different types of hospitals and re-hab places and am finally home. Amazingly I am walking (almost normaly) and my doctors just said my bones are 100% healed. Its been a long hard journey but I have overcome it all. The down part it is the weight I have gained from being inactive so long and still not being at my fullest to exercise. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks everyone and please be careful walking out there.

Hi,
Don't change your way of exercising, exercising will not only keep you from gaining weight, but will also help you mind to stay good, so you will not get any of the things, that sime people have because they don't stay active.
Glad you got your weight down, don't give up & you will suceed. I am working doing what I can, with a garden in pots, the eating & pickling cucumbers have little cucumbers now, wiill be big enough next week to start picking them. One of the tomatoes have blossoms, so in anout two week will have fresh home grown tomatoes.

You have done great, glad you have a husband & he is willing to go for a walk with you. It most likely did the two of you a world of good, just being able to enjoy the walk & talking together.

Just took a leisurely walk with my husband on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. No tracking time or distance, just enjoying nature and talking. I get so caught up in daily exercise walks that sometimes i forget how nice it is to go out and walk with no real goal in mind, just enjoying the company.

It's never too late to become what you might have been

Hi Tawny: That is awesome how well you have done. Keep up the good work.

MrsClark: I also have the WATP DVD's. I have had to stop exercising for a little while but I plan on getting back on track and using them. They really are fun once you are into them.

Hope everyone had a good Friday.

Hi Everyone,
You are all doing great. I am doing better since I stopped eating store bought bread. I am eating rice cakes instead, also am eating less most of the time. At church pot luck, yesterday, didn't eat until I was to full, just nice & full.

I continue to be thrilled with my improved endurance and speed. Back in January I struggled with shin splints and could barely walk at 3 mph for twenty or thirty minutes. I slowly increased my endurance to a full hour and then started working on slowly increasing the speed. Last week I was able to walk an hour at 3.3 mph and last night I walked at 3.4 mph for the last fifteen minutes. It's good to remember these improvements when the scale is stubborn. :-)
