  • Hubby and I did a 6km walk on a walking track near our home. It was a beautiful day.
  • I got a Garmin for Christmas, and have been using it to track my steps. But now, I will use the alerts, so when I get the first warning that I have been sitting too long, I will get up and move to remove the warning. To increase my overall daily steps, I have also implemented the following into my work day (which is when I…

  • Thanks @dabeck62 . I really didn't think MFP would work. I have tried so many different ways to lose weight without much success. After almost 3 months, I just can't believe how well it is working, and how sustainable it really is once you get into the groove. I think it also helped that I was training for a 12km walk. I…
