I know when I do the Walk Away the Pounds and use a 2 pound weight some days I feel like it has about killed me... I haven't bothered to take them with me when I go out for a walk, but have thought about it.

What doesn't kill us makes us stronger right?

Back when walking with hand weights was popular, people started with 1 pound weights and slowly worked up. I think you jumped off the deep end!
