    @dldrucker - I typically do 2 to 3 walks per day in the morning, lunchtime/afternoon, and more recently in the evening. Everyone has different routines, schedules and constraints, of course.

    My morning walks during the week are usually between the times of getting things/kids prepped and work. During the weekends that is an early morning walk before the others are up and moving around. During the week I walk during lunchtime and eat while working. On weekends I very rarely get a walk in during that time. Recently I have started doing an evening/night walk as soon as the kids are down, this one being at a relaxed pace to unwind.

    As for weight loss, I am a firm believer in CICO and nutrition for weight loss. So the calorie burns can help, but only so long as there is a calorie deficit and proper nutrition to prevent the body from craving crazy stuff to fill some shortage.

    My goal for September is 100 miles of walking.

    Starting September 5th
    9/5/2021 - 5 miles

    Wondering how everyone finds the TIME for all their walking?
    Also wondering if people are finding the walking helps them lose weight or maintain their weight?

    Dldrucker—I have lost 18.8 lbs since the end of May, and while I do watch calories and focus on making every calorie count (more protein/fiber, fewer carbs/90%ish clean), I’d believe my commitment to the elliptical has made the biggest difference. My daughter is old enough to leave for a couple of hours while I go to the gym, and I also chose a gym close to her activities, so I often get ky miles in during rehearsals, when she meets friends, etc.

    I make time: 30 minutes either early in the morning or towards sunset. I also slip it into moments in my day: walking to Target, for example, instead of driving, or taking the stairs (it adds up!)

    For me, walking helps with weight loss if I'm paying attention to my nutrition. If I'm eating more vegetables and unprocessed foods, then the weight slips off. If I'm eating the same amount of calories but in bread and pasta, I gain weight.
