Welcome to Day 3 of the October Weight Loss Challenge!
Are you a walker?
Do you enjoy walking?
Have you ever used walking as a form of exercise?
Will you walk today? How far and/or how long?
A routine of brisk walking has been proven to have the same effects as more strenuous exercise such as jogging or running. Walking also has many good health and weight loss benefits such as:
Lowering 'bad' cholesterol
Raising 'good' cholesterol
Reduces the risk/or manages type 2 diabetes
Manages your weight
Helps you to stay fit
Make walking comfortable by maintaining good posture. Keep your head up with your eyes forward, shoulders back and relaxed. Remember to tighten your abs and buttocks as well. If you have a pedometer, use it to track your steps/distance.
Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, anyone can effectively and safely lose weight by walking.

I love to walk. Can't figure which I like better outside or on treadmill.
I walk all over the place since don't have car.
I already did 20 min on treadmill. I will be taking bus doing my stuff so there is walking there not sure how much.
I walk my daughter to school Then walk back to get the bus to go to work. I also walk for about 45 minutes around Manhattan on my lunch break. I love to walk outside. In the gym I try To do more intense workouts.
Yes, I am a walker. I don't have a car, so unless I can arrange a ride somewhere, I have to walk. I do enjoy walking, especially with my daughter in her stroller. I have also used walking as a form of exercise. Sometimes I'll go to the mall just to walk around for a couple of hours. My town has their annual Harvet Hustle this weekend. There is a 7k run and a 2 mile walk. I'm not big on running, but I will be participating in the walk.
