Instead of starting out with 100+ lbs to lose, start your goals small and increase them as you lose. By doing so, your tracker moves to the right seemingly at a quicker pace and is already in quite a bit by the time you extend your goal.

Using the step tracker on the fitness tracker, start keeping track of the number of steps you take. When I first started sparkpeople last year, I was walking about 3000 to 5000 steps per day. I joined a group that that had steps walked as one of their goals. I worked myself up to 10,000 + steps (recommended) within a year's time. Now I find myself walking more than that routinely!
All you need to start upping your steps is a good pair of walking shoes and a pedometer! 312 Getting a dof helped me get out more consistantly! 313
