    Welcome to The Step Diet Team!

    Please watch this very short, very inspirational video, 2 mins 21 seconds:
    www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqAItA-qsX4

    The Step Diet is a safe, sane, logical way to progress from where you are, to where you want to go via baby steps, i.e. reaching 10,000 steps a day or more, but only increasing daily walking by 3-5mins ea week to do so. Brenda Willis (shown in the video) did; she lost 140+ lbs on The Step Diet, AND she did it in her mid 40s, AND she has kept it off 7+ years. She had been overweight most of her adult life, and always on a diet, prior to The Step Diet. True Lifestyle Change! There is also a book you can order from Amazon, "The Step Diet"; I haven't been able to find it in secondary (used) book markets but a couple team members have.

    This Lifestyle Change is about learning energy balance; how many daily steps equal weightloss; and when you reach the point that you're maintaining, how many steps equal a piece of dessert, etc., so that you can keep it off F-O-R-E-V-E-R. Welcome! Carol

    Allo, allo, it's me - Alysia :)

    Something to keep in mind about drinking those umpteen glasses of water: your body can only absorb 4 ounces of water every 30 minutes, that's just about a juice glass size. So, if you can do just that every half hour, you'll get your 8 glasses in by the end of the day.

    Keeping your body well-hydrated helps with weight loss and maintenance, plus keeps your muscles healthy for all that walking you do. Hydration also helps prevent injury.

    You're doing so well, and I hope the bootcamp is going well for you.

    Come on over to my spark page and visit. :)

    Cheers!
