It really motivated us and made the walks less same old same old. It's fun to see each others pics too.

    There are now 15 of us doing it! We're starting again on Monday and if any of you want to join feel free!

    Monday's challenge is to out there, walk briskly ;-) for a minimum of 30 minutes and take a photo of something NEW.

    Add it to our fat-to-fit-foto site if you fancy. (But you don't have to - it's just a great motivator!)

    Keep up the good work. (I've dropped a jeans size since Xmas!!!!!!!!!)

    I just took and uploaded my first photo to this site. I registered using the same username as I use for Minimins. I was a little concerned that I would not find something "arranged" on my walk -- but there it was. My neighbour who walks with me (she actually walks my little dog and I get to go along to pick up the dog's 'business") enjoyed the scavenger hunt aspect of the walk today. She said it made us look at the neighbourhood differently.

    Got an email from Fat-To-Fit-Foto and pasted it here!

    I am so pleased to have gotten my "assignment" -- I feel as if I am in an episode of "Mission Impossible"... but this "Mission Possible". I liked the motivational information about the benefits of walking and, of course, the Einstein quote (from what I've heard -- he was a pretty clever dude). Getting ready to walk, click and upload. -- MM

    Five Fab shots yesterday! Thanks everyone and a big Welcome to MinnieMel!

    Our next photo challenge is...SURFACES

    Happy walks
