Hello, everyone! I used to walk regularly a few years back, but I've been out of practice due to my back pain flaring up several times this year. I'm feeling pretty good so far and the 10 min walk went off without a hitch.

I look forward to walking with all of you and I can't wait to get back into the walking habit.

Day 1. Hoping to get in the habit of walking.

Love, Live, Sing, Dance...Be healthy!

We are motivated by reward, so if we look forward to the reward, we will have the stamina we need to keep pressing toward our goal.

Just joined yesterday. Looking forward to developing a walking habit.

1. You are entirely up to you. Make your body, make your life.
2. If you are tired of starting over, stop giving up!
3. It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle change.
4. The Dalai Lama: "One brings failure on oneself by working extremely hard at the beginning, attempting to do too much, and then giving it all up after a short time. A constant stream of moderate effort is needed."

This is my weight over time. It makes me sad and hopeful at the same time to see it. I want and plan to stick with this through the very hard holidays and wish everyone strength. I plan to lose 40 pounds. However, for now my goal is the 30 day walk challenge and 30 day Ketogenic diet challenge.

Hi everyone,
Been with Sparks since 2007. Lost a lot of weight then put almost all of it back on because one of the medications I had been taking was making my heart skip beats. Tried EVERYTHING to control and not gain back but nothing worked. The doctor couldn't, or wouldn't, put me on anything even close to what I had been on so the next best thing made me gain weight. Nothing to do about it since I had to take it.
Now I've started a new therapy which I really hope will do me a world of good over the long run. Will have to do this therapy 5 days a week for 6 weeks. Supposed to begin tomorrow but it's my grandson's 12th birthday. Wouldn't be right to not go. *Sigh* Have to figure something out. Anyway, am hopeful that since this year has been the year from "he-double tooth picks" I'll be able to get back on the ball and start to lose this weight again.

Hi today is my day three. I did my first 5k last Saturday so now I have a baseline and something to improve on as my personal goal. Never have done hiking but what a great way to spend time with your dad!

Hi, I joined this challenge a few days ago. I have loved walking for years. So glad the weather is finally good enough to make walking safe again. My goal is to get my walking game up enough to join my dad on a hiking trip. We used to go hiking in the Adirondacks once a year until I gained so much weight I was no longer able to keep up.

I'm 69, and three years ago this month was diagnosed with breast cancer, requiring chemo and radiation. I have been sedentary all my life and was very fatigued from the treatments, so just sitting was so easy. Then a little over a month ago I was placed on a CPAP machine at night. So I have to get up and get moving.

Hi. My name is Babs. I've been a member of SP for several years. I have not lost a lot of weight but I've made a lot of great friends and found a lot of support and encouragement. So I have learned to accept my 'small' losses as they come and to not focus totally on the scale.

I'm semi-retired, and I'm not very flexible. That tells me I need to 'move it, move it, move it' a lot more than I do. I have started yoga stretches and walking in short increments. I also belong to a gym and enjoy water walking.

I want to be part of this team and 'walk this way' to get me 'moving' in the right direction.

Hello, my name is Holly and I live in St. Petersburg, Florida, a.k.a., The Burg. I have rheumatoid arthrits and a spinal fusion which makes running a big no no for me, so walking it is! My rheumatologist says if I drop 30 pounds It will help my joints significantly and I intend to do exactly that. I'm starting on day 1 today.

I am joining this challenge again. Challenges are a way to motivate me to exercise daily and be accountable to more than just myself.

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Phil 2:3-4.

Hello everyone, my name is Kristen. I joined this challenge because there was a time in my life when I loved to walk! I walked all the time, all over the place. Since having my first child 7 years ago I have all but given up an activity I loved doing and find it hard to find the time to even get out for a few minutes. I am hoping this challenge will help get me up and walking again, just a little bit at a time.

Hi my name is Terri. I joined this challenge to help me get back on track with a regular exercise routine that became derailed in 2016 due to unexpected family loss and personal injuries. I am ready, willing and able to continue. I miss my daily workouts and walking. I currently am able to walk 8,000 steps without pain due to a sprained ankle in November. It is getting better but longer than that then I get the pain and start limping. This challenge will be a good progression as the ankle continues to heal.

Hi, I'm Alaina. I joined the walking challenge today. My dogs are going to be happy that I did! I've been off and on SparkPeople since 2008.
So recently, my weight has been creeping back up (30 lbs gained). It's time to get back to basics! It's time to renew and get back on track!

My name is Carol and I joined this challenge in the hopes of getting myself back to a regular exercise routine. I have been struggling all summer and one of my Sparkbuddies suggested I join a challenge. I researched and feel like this is the one for me.

On Day 2.

Hi, my name is Anna. I have decided to add a fitness goal, long term, so that I keep motivated. Concentrating on just the weight loss will get me frustrated fast!!! My long term goal is to run a 10K, this challenge is just the first step to get to that BIG goal. I suffer from shin splints with even the slightest bit of walking but I am hoping to beat that too!!!

Hi, So glad to have found this Challenge. I have been trying to keep track of my steps with walking indoors and out . So far I have averaged 8--10k steps a day but my goal is to average 10-20k a day. Love walking. It is my favorite exercise especially outdoors in nature when the weather permits otherwise I do my walking dvd's. Anything I can do I will do to get my steps in. I also love doing the virtual walks because I am a stay at home mom and barely get out of the house let alone the state. Keeps me motivated .

No snacks
No sweets
No seconds

Hello! This is day one for me! I'm hoping to connect with others so I stay accountable. It is hard to commit. If I have others support it helps. So if your thinking of visiting my page or leaving a comment, do it, I need a push, a kick in the pants, support. Thanks

I love music!

Hi my name is Carolyn. I am excited about this walking forum. I am currently a member at results transformation center in Northern California and down 40lbs from boot camp cardio/strength training and healthy eating, for a total of 62lbs loss. The first 22 was from walking. I am now ready to walk 5K. This challenge will get me mentally ready as I continue with the boot camp to reach my goals.

I'm Misty and I am couch potato snacker (mainly at work). I am working to below what I was in 9th grade and that was 127 then. I'm tired of the pain and the grief when I look at my stomach.

Hi I'm Teresa. I'm 54 and very overweight. Started as couch potato now I might be able to walk a hour? I'm here to learn about walking. I still have to "make" myself do it, as I walk, I listen to music and tell myself out loud, all the reasons why I'm doing this. It has really helped me keep going.

Hi, I'm Dawn. I am the mother of two energetic boys age 11 and 8 and two fur babies (cats) who are still kittens themselves at 10 months old emoticon emoticon . I turned 36 earlier this month. I have been in an extremely happy, loving relationship with my bf for almost 5 1/2 years now and hope to soon be emoticon , we have also been unofficially trying for emoticon for a little over 2 years now. Although my biometric screening this year said I was "low risk" for everything but weight, BMI and waist measurement I still want to be healthier for my family......I also want to be able to not shop in the Women's department anymore and be able to buy my bridesmaid dresses for the weddings I'm in next year off the rack without as well as my wedding dress when/if I get remarried.

Hi Everyone! I joined this team on Friday, April 1 & that was the first day I walked. I am excited about this group and really looking forward to being able to walk a 5K by the end of April! Going from not walking at all to doing a 5K in 30 days is pretty impressive. Here's to all of us reaching the 30 day goal!

I am Patti and I live near St Louis. I put in long hours at a high stress sedentary job and have had the weight gain that goes with it. Have always loved walking and feel like I can commit to and stick with 10 minutes each day even though I hope to exceed that most days. Joining the challenge to hold myself accountable so no excuses. Plus I enjoy the support and camaraderie of others.

The only way we can fail is to give up. Never surrender!

Hi everyone: I am Jo Ann from Texas. I did this challenge once before. When looking for a new challenge, I decided I wanted to rejoin this team and see if I can do a better job this time round. I know walking will help. I am also participating in the 10000 step challenge but am not being consistent. I had a goal of 7500 and I am hitting that most of the time but really want to get to where 10000 steps is the norm and increase the challenge to more steps. Wish me luck.

I'm new to the challenge today. Just set my Lent goal to walk at least 10 minutes per day, six days per week. Since I'm very sedentary, that will be a big one for me. I just booked a cruise yesterday, and I want enough energy to enjoy it!

Hi I'm Sandra. I joined SparkPeople back in 2012 to lose weight and it worked I lost 20 pounds and unfortunately gained 14 that's cause I stopped coming to SparkPeople and stopped running (due to pain in my ankles and shins). Well the word I picked for this year is discipline (and one I keep thinking about is commitment). I want to break out of the habit of not sticking to what I set out to do. So I probably still can't run, I tried in January and got the same ankle shin pains so I have been walking. I joined a pedometer challenge at work which ends on Monday but I want to keep this habit of walking everyday. I've been currently walking for an hour each day and it does make me feel good to be active.

Hi Coach Jen. Just wondering why we couldn't do the challenge again & again & keep receiving more points instead of not receiving any. It would be a great incentive! I like the challenges & would like to keep doing them. Thanks.

Hello! Today I will start walking at least 10 minutes a day until I can gradually do more. I have a lot to lose and also have spinal stenosis so I'm going to do the best I can and start slow.
