If I can do“If I can do it anyone can!! My idea of exercise was looking for the remote control when it got lost in between the couch! I registered as a member about 4 months ago and since then things have definitly improved. I'm now doing a 35 minute walk, three times a week with some other local walkers....you will see us puffing away either early in the morning or late afternoon. Seriously though, the pedometer is a great little device to kickstart you into doing something. And if you're like me and easily demotivated, try walking with some mates or in a walking group. ”- , Outside Australia, 10 Jun 2003
I find that the“I find that the pedometer is a great tool for motivating me. It tells me exactly how much (or how little) walking i have done. ”- Glenn, Queensland, 30 May 2003
Motivating myself to walk“Motivating myself to walk was like pulling teeth. I found it boring. Now that I have my pedometer this motivates me and reminds me of how slack I have been. My job is bad for me in the sense that I sit at a computer all day. Not good for clocking up steps. I now take a regular break and have an "time to myself walk" and come back in a few minutes feeling refreshed and ready to continue with my work. Walking is no longer boring, i make sure i take a walk before or after work for about 30 mins. I feel so much better for it, I have more energy and I not a tired as I used to feel. Give it a go!!!! you won't regret it. ”- Anonymous, Outside Australia, 30 May 2003
