I will definitely be reading those articles later. I've had several medical procedures which raise my risk for osteoporosis. So in addition to the walking...I need to be doing strength training as well. My Doc already has me on 50,000 IUs of Vitamin D 3 times a week b/c I have a serious vitamin D deficiency. Obese people tend to have lower Vitamin D levels than the rest of the population. One more reason to eat better & exercise!!!

31 Days to Stronger Bones
May is National Osteoporosis Awareness & Prevention Month—a time to remember the importance of preventing osteoporosis, a disease that causes bones to become weak and brittle. Half of all women (and one quarter of men over 50) will break a bone due to osteoporosis, according to the National Institutes of Health. But osteoporosis is largely preventable through healthy lifestyle choices.
Strengthen your bones from this month forward by starting with these 31 daily tips for May.
