    Hi all, well started walking to loose weight on the 15th January 2011. I have cut my portion sizes down and not eating junk food. So far this is what I have done:

    15th Jan - 5 miles
    16th Jan - 4 miles
    18th Jan - 4.5 miles
    19th Jan - 2.33 miles
    Was ill with a chest infection :(

    29th Jan - 6 miles
    30th Jan - 3.25 miles
    31st Jan - 4.14 miles
    2nd Feb - 6.42 miles
    3rd Feb - 4.01 miles
    Sprained my ankle coming to the end of last nights walk so have had to postpone my walking, will be back to it ASAP :)

    So far I am feeling more positive and have lost 6lb just with walking and cutting my portion sizes :) Think I have found something that I can sustain and it is definatly working for me :)

    I am using my Nokia sports tracker which gives accurate distance hence the 4.01's and the 6.42's, its definatly keeping me motivated and its good to see my progress, it spurrs me on :)

    I also intend to walk my way to weight loss and knowing that it works for sure for someone else is inspiring for me. Good luck!

    I too use my phone. I have two things on it, one is a basic pedometer which is pretty accurate. That I use most days. Then I have a gps tracker but don't use it often as it eats the battery up. Due to gps my route again on 23rd. I walked at average 2.9 mph last month according to my gps tracker. The speed has increased since I started walking last December when it was 2.4mph. I do around 5 miles a day.

    Well the places I go are a racecourse, 1 lap is 2 miles, or I do a circuit round my town, its got good hills and decent flat for speed walking, when i have the energy lol, I usually go on the round town walks during the week then the racecourse at weekends or on my days off :)
