    I am in too. Made a concerted effort to go to gym on first day of the year and walked for 30 minutes. Will try to continue it every day.

    I'm in. Just checked my weight for the first time in a couple of weeks. I gained weight during Thanksgiving. Just 3 pounds and got it off before Christmas. Yay me. However! However, I just checked it this a.m. and I have gained 9 pounds since Thanksgiving! Gained 3, lost 3, didn't weigh in and now up 9 total! Good grief. My goal in the first place was/is 100. So now I have 68 to go. I know with the help of you guys, walking and water aerobics I will get there! It's January 2, 2016! I am ready to begin again - or is that CONTINUE? Yes, I lost 43 pounds in 2015. I can - I WILL LOSE 68 in 2016! Ready, set, GO!

    Good morning!

    Yesterday I did 9,967 steps for 3.92 miles.

    Today I want to get 11,000 steps. To get there, I'm going to do a lot of house cleaning and organizing with a Leslie Sansone walking DVD thrown in at some point.

    Have a great day!

    Can't figure out how to post by myself on a Nook but I'm in....def. not going outside (sorry dogs) its Iowa, its about 12 degrees out. Scared to fall on all the sidewalk ice! Need to teach dog to use treadmill too. Walking with Leslie Sansone & on treadmill. Charging up the neglected Fitbit.

    I'm in - this is my first week on the site - my walking is not going to be anything drastic but this challenge is a way to motivate me to do something rather than nothing. Today I have been out walking at a leisurely pace for 120Mins.

    Hello all! I just found this thread, but I'm definitely in for this month. I walked 4.14 miles in 1 hr 22 minutes yesterday. I'm gonna set myself a goal of 62 miles for January.....with how cold it gets up here in the Pittsburgh area in January, I'm gonna need all the motivation and accountability I can get!

    I'm in. I did just over 10000 steps yesterday and today I've walked approximately one and a half hours with our dog Lucy and managed over 12,000 steps. Good start but I'm worried when I get to work next week that I won't achieve it as I work in an office. I'm going to have to force myself to walk the steps I haven't achieved in work with the dog in the evening!
