I bought a pedometer!

I was inspired by people saying on a thread the other day about them and got curious and had to buy one I was pleasantly surprised! From about 1pm til about 8pm when the small one reset it, I'd done about 9500 steps!

My OH was taking the piss saying I looked stupid with it on, but sod him I'm looking forward to seeing how many I do today!

i got one but never use it ( actually i won it so its not a fancy one ) but thinking of getting a nice one !
How many steps are you suppose to take to help with loosing weight ...so any taking is good i guess already rather sitting front of the TV !

I think they say you should do 10,000 a day at least! The bloody thing's not been working properly today I forgot about it as well and went out for a big walk!

I got one free a few years ago, from Kellogg I think, when they were pushing their "Special K diet". It's 10000 steps, you are correct, and I'm ashamed to say that I never got up to that figure at all, so I stopped using it.

I love mine. I often find myself walking up/downstairs just to get extra steps

Where do you wear it? do you just put it in your pocket?

It says to clip it to the waist band on your trousers/skirt/whatever in line with where the crease is. I was just thinking before about whether you can put it in your pocket! Will give it a try tomorrow

I was finding myself walking round the house yesterday just to try and add on some more steps! I think I may get a tad addicted to the numbers

I am now inspired to buy a real one too. I use the one on my mobile phone but I seriously doubt its accuracy. The instructions are that I should put it in my pocket, but it counts all my movements as steps! I need one that can be as close to the truth as possible so that I can stop fooling myself.

The one I got was only a cheap one, so it's probs not too accurate! This has just reminded me I've not put it on yet! Off to find it!
