  • I took walk through wal-mart used to ride cart not any longer! emoticon - by DODELL54
  • I love walking its keeps my mind clear and I also enjoy the fresh air, as well as the exercise. - by SHERR513
  • For a long time all my issues with my feet kept me from being able to walk. The 9 hours a day on my feet at work was about all I could handle. My podiatrist told me not to use the treadmill or walk more than necessary. Luckily, at least for now, my feet are better and I am enjoying being able to take walks. I have several routes I take exploring areas in and around town. Some days I just prefer walking to spending time in the gym......except when it's really cold or windy. Still haven't been able to make myself get back on the treadmill though. - by 1LAZYCOOK
  • I've started walking around my subdivision. It takes about 15-20 mins if you walk at a faster pace. And, even though I only walk around once, I'm taking baby steps and will add more times gradually. - by CUPCAKE_DIVA72

  • Walks help with stress relief and is a great exercise that you can do inside and out. I use Leslie Sansonne's DVDs in the winter. - by SJKENT1
    Walking would have been part of my exercise today, but since it is frigid and icy, I plan to do some Spark People videos with Nicole! - by VAINVT
  • Walking is one of my favorite things and I take full advantage of it since my hip replacement. Even yesterday, cold as it was outside, my "just 15 minutes" ended up being 45 minutes. I think about everything and about nothing at all!

  • After knee surgery, walking ten minutes has been an effort, but I am getting faster and moving farther for longer times as I work on the ten minute spurts. - by JPEARL127

  • This sparked me because today I made myself more accountable by asking two friends if when they walk I could come. So they will have to meet me on the way so I could walk with them. Awsome

    So enjoy walking. - by SCOTLA
    I so agree!! emoticon - by DEARTOMYHEART
  • I'm lucky (I think) that some of my walking is built-in. I take train to work, so walk 10 min. to train, then ride train to next town, then walk 1.5 miles to work & then do the reverse. Then I also go for walks/hikes with friends. emoticon - by GINGERVISTA
  • I love walking and would do even more if I could. Have to be careful with my new knee! - by LYNCHD05
