Many of you have asked me “How did you lose all that weight?” The answer is simple: Start small.
Take a walk
According to Blue Zones article What Exercise is Best for Optimal Health and Longevity? “it’s important to exercise, but not to overexercise” (Dr. Valter Longo, 2018). Walking is an excellent way to get in some exercise and it’s easy to fit into your day. Start by taking a walk in the morning before work or during your lunch break. Make sure to add additional steps to your daily routine. Just get moving!

Set a small goal
Set a small goal for yourself. See how many steps you take on an average day and increase it by 10% every week until you reach your desired step count. You don’t need to get a fancy step counter. You can get one at the store for a few dollars. You may even have a health app on your phone. This a great tool to keep track of your movement every day and encourage you to keep moving.
Make it fun
I have a friend that bought an inexpensive step counter and would set up a competition with her friend. They would compete on who would take the most steps in a week. This makes it fun and keeps you accountable.
Build a Routine that Suits your Lifestyle
At the end of the day, you need to find a way to fit exercise into your daily routine. You need to develop a plan that works for you.
