It's easy to join - Just post here to begin! You can also jump in anytime during the month, too.

    I'm new at this and not sure how to post. Looking forward to attaining my goals!

    Welcome @christineledewig

    I keep track of my daily steps with Fitbit. Then I record them in 'inkpad' then copy and paste to here.

    You can use any program to track and record your steps.

    If it helps keep you motivated, report any/all steps. The goal is to be active (and increase activity) and for me being accountable helps keep me motivated.

    My first goal was with my Dr for 5000 steps per day, then I found this group. I increased my steps each month. For me a month gives me time to adjust to the new goal.

    Glad you found this community,

    I find myself struggling to actually achieve my steps if I’m not working. I wait tables at a local diner and you can see the difference in my steps when I don’t! I want to achieve at least 7k a day. I’ll keep changing my goal each month to make it a challenge for me!
