Hey walkers!

New to the board, but not new to walking. I've been walking off and on for a couple of years. Just scored my first WATP a couple of weeks ago. I'm up to 3 miles a day, and just added the ab belt and 2lb hand weights.

At this point in my life, loosing a ton of weight is not number 1 (been there done that many times). I just want to be as healthy as I can be, and move as much as I can. I do my best to follow the intuitive eating principles, eat only when I'm truly hungry, stop before I'm stuffed, and eat when I want. after much research on the diet industry (most of them treat the symptoms, not the real problem), and various diets, how counter productive dieting really is in the long run, and once i realized that food doesn't make me fat, OVER EATING makes me fat, I swore off diets forever. It was one of the best decision I ever made (besides taking up walking of course!), and I'll never go back to the miserable life of yo-yo dieting and weight loss/gain, and being a slave to the scale, and allowing that number to determine how I feel, and define who I am.

There are several WAPT forums out there, but this place is the only one that is really active. The other forums, if there's a post once a week, you're lucky. So I'd like to be a poster here, and keep track of my miles, and just be able to converse with others who love the WATP program!! Can I be a part of your group?

I see I'll have to get one of those cute tickers and mark off all the miles I've done in the last week.

I took a break last night, my knee was bothering me from the walk on Monday. I have RA, so when the body says "need a break", then I have to listen.

Tonights plan: walk 3 miles with the hand weights.

I wish I could crawl out of bed early enough to get in some morning walking too.

Hello Ladies! I am new and looking for some support in weightloss. I want to start walking - I have 35lbs to lose, any suggestions on how far and how fast to begin? What are these DVD's you are talking about? Do you just walk around the living room while watching them?

Hey immelting! I'm new here too!

The video's are Walk Away The Pounds by Leslie Sansone. I got all mine from amazon. Check out the "used" ones, they are really cheap!

It consists of walking in place ( I usually pace back and forth) with various different moves like kicks and side steps. I never thought walking in place could be a work out. WRONG!!! LOL. Leslie will work you out and good! I love the video's and highly recommend them. If you go to her website, she has a free one mile streaming video there that you can check out. If you're a beginner walker, start with just one mile, and before you know it, you'll be walking 3 or 4 a day with Leslie!

I also do treadmill walking sometimes, and sometimes I just go for a walk outside. If you don't have one already, get yourself a pedometer to count your steps.

Welcome Bootscoot! I'm glad your joining the group. Today I felt the same way about getting up today, I almost lost the battle by not walking. Luckily I pushed myself anyway and completed my walk.

Hello Immelting and welcome. Bootscoot gave a pretty good explanation of what Walk Away the Pounds program is. Leslie Sansone's videos are the best. If you google her and visit her site, you will see she offers many types of workouts to fit your needs.In addition to Amazon (like Bootscoot suggested and is probably the cheapest place to buy them)you can get the from Walmart, Target,Barnes and Nobles, Collage Videos etc.

FYI to all, I don't know if it is just in my area but my free on demand channel is offering 3 of Leslie's workouts. If you are new to her system it is a good way to try before you buy or just to add some variation to your workouts.

I did the usual big 5--I managed to do the 5 Day Slim Down.

Get to steppin' ladies and keep it movin'!

I am not sure if direct tv has this or not. But the channel is called Free on demand. It has movies, primetime shows and cable shows. It's a 24/7 channel.
