Walking Works

I just read Diane’s blog post “Is Walking Alone Enough To Lose Weight?” today and was encouraged that walking does work as exercise and in being successful in weight loss. It’s not that I didn’t know this before. My friend Chris and I both walked when we lost the weight before, but I have heard comments that insinuate walking alone is not challenging enough, or is too easy.

Ha! Well, tell that to my friend Diane!
Just kidding. (kind of…)
Actually, I know of quite a few ladies who have kept their weight down over the years simply by walking daily, so that’s why I know it works. It was just encouraging to read a post by someone who not only controls her weight with walking, but has lost a significant amount with walking as her main exercise.

I agree with her that we have to make sure and push ourselves to walk more intensely as our bodies are able, and that’s why I especially love Leslie Sansone’s Walk At Home DVDs. Leslie pushes me sometimes when I just want to take it easy.

Walking is the exercise that just clicks with me and I’m so happy to once again hear someone say that it works.
p.s. I love step aerobics also…but I love being to workout at/near my home more – and it fits my budget better! 🙂

  1. I read her post, she's right, walking does work. I did it last time and am doing it this time as well. So far so good. Plus eating right helps

  2. Hey – I am right – walking does work! I couldn't resist writing that. I love it when people tell me I'm right!! Just kidding.

    Walking is great – I still enjoy it, even after all these years.
