    I just found this group! Excited to start the walking challenge tomorrow. I've been looking for a fitness challenge to jump start my walking.

    Hello everyone! My name is Linda and my end goal is to run a 10K but I am very out of shape and will start with walking. (That 10K is a looooong term goal.) I'm a few days late but I'm going to jump in starting tomorrow and pick up on day 6. Best wishes, everyone, we can do this!!

    Hello, my name is Kathy. I decided to join to help meet the goal of 10000 steps a day. My work has a 6 week 10000 step challenge that starts April 6 so I thought the support here might help me get and stay on track.

    Hi everyone, well today is day one of my challenge. My name is Marion and I admit that there are days that I am lazy so hopefully I will do this challenge, it's not that I cant do it, it is a case that I don't do it and that is bad I am my own worst enemy. So here is to getting it done. Onwards and upwards.

    Hi - my name is Sue and I need to get fit. I walked two miles today with one of Leslie's videos- does anyone know how many steps that is?? I like her videos as they get my heart rate up a bit more than actual walking-so ---here goes!

    Hi everyone! I'm Joyce and I'm starting the 10000 steps a day challenge today. As of right this minute I have 8372 steps for today. I'm hoping this challenge will keep me accountable. Let's do it!

    Hi, I'm Adrie. I started the challenge on Sunday, but am making it "official" today. I've used Leslie's walking DVDs for a long time (heck, I started w VHS tapes), but have gotten out of the habit (and gotten out of shape!), in the past couple of years. Need to get back on track and I believe this is a good way to start. OK, time to get walking!! Good luck everyone.

    Hello - my name is Crystal and I am trying to lose quite a bit of weight. I purchased a Fitbit for myself about a month ago and have it set for a daily goal of 10,000 steps. So would my steps each day count for this or is this meant to be in one session?

    Hello everyone! My goal is to walk DAILY and with the weather warming up in Oregon enough that I won't mind walking in the rain it's doable. Motivation = Meeting my goals of losing weight and getting fitter. This looks like just the place to get going!

    Hi. My name is Vicky and I am from N. Carolina.

    I have been doing the 10,000 steps for a little while now. But I had foot surgery Wednesday and I am so lost without being able to walk. It will be a few days yet but I am going to check out this challenge.

    I only have 3.8 lbs to go to meet my goal.
    And I have been walking and working out for about 3 years now. It has become such a habit that I don't like it when I have to miss for any reason (which is rare). One can always find a place to walk.

    Looking forward to all the good advice in this group.

    Hi all walkers. My name is Sandy from West Virginia. I have started the walking challenge but I have rheumatoid arthritis and have been having flare ups of various joints from the activity. So I have to skip days to let my joints recover and the inflammation to leave. But I am hanging in there and hope to be able to continue and then increase my walking time as my body allows.

    Hi, I started the challenge when it was first posted in the blogs and was so inspired I have kept working at increasing (or at least maintaining) my steps everyday. I have found that I have more energy during the day and find it hard to sit still at my desk. I've even started planning how to sneak in a short walk during lunch (without getting too sweaty that I run my coworkers out of the building). I haven't felt this good in a long time. smiley:
