Much has been written about individuals needing to walk a minimum of 10,000 steps a day.
Charting how many steps you walk can easily be accomplished with a pedometer.
Many articles have been written stating that those who use a pedometer are more apt to walk more.
Apparently, if you are tracking your steps, you are more likely to meet your daily goals.
Having read these reports, it makes me wonder if anyone, adults and children alike, could use this technique to achieve weight loss.
I would venture to guess, it could almost become a game, of sorts.
Anyone needing to lose weight, could chart how many steps they take each day.
It could end up being a contest between family members and/or friends.
At the end of each day, the number of steps taken by each person could be recorded.
Then at the end of each month, a special prize (non-food), could be given to the person who has walked the most steps.
Wearing a pedometer, could not only help individuals to lose weight by increasing their activity levels, but could also result in a great “bonding” experience.
