Bought a pedometer today... let's see if it motivates me!

Bought a pedometer today when I was at Target. I've never been one to really exercise so I'm hoping that this will motivate me to at least move more during the day. Don't they recommend 10,000 steps a day? I'm sure I'm nowhere near that, but maybe I can try to get close to that number each day!

I bought one a while back and did like using it. I found myself being more active as I lost weight.

The problem was that when my pants got loose, the pedometer didn't stay in position correctly and didn't work! It was very UNmotivating to look at it late in the day and see that it had hardly moved!!

I need to remember to wear it when I have on pants that fit.

I see what you mean! I finally took the pedometer out of its package and put it on. I went to the local track and walked 4 loops of the track with is 1 mile, but I only registered about 800 steps. I thought how do people get 10,000 steps in one day if 1 mile is only 800 steps! Then I figured out it should have registered about 2000 steps. I'm sure the fact that the pants I wore were about to fall off of me is why the pedometer messed up.

Does your pedometer ask you to put in your stride? I have one, and I haven't properly put in my stride, so I think the numbers are off. I'm going to go and walk what I know to be exactly one mile and see what it says later today.

I got a pedometer a couple months ago to track how much I walk on a typical day at college. Too bad it doesn't account for my 30lb book bag. That thing is killer.

My pedometer is programmable with weight/stride and because that is in there, it is accurate. I can have it in the pocket of my walking shorts/jeans/skirt/dress and it tallies the steps. (I can also put it in my bra and it still tallies the steps-I know TMI!) It does know if it is a "fake" step and will not record it. It also records the number of aerobic steps...10 minutes of continuous walking and it will start recording aerobic steps.

It also calculates calories burned and miles walked. It has a 7 day memory..and a newer version has a computer upload feature as well. I have it with me all day every day. I started with walking just a mile. Nowadays, I am walking 4-6 miles a day with up to 10-13 miles a day on my days off. Walking is a great way to exercise. You can speed it up and power walk, you can race walk, you can walk briskly with a cool down slower walk at the end of your time walking each day. I love it!
