Take 10,000 Steps

Current Weight: 224 lbs.
Change 9: Walk more.

Walking is a great way to burn calories with low impact on the body. There are even whole diets based around walking, like The Step Diet. Walk everywhere you can. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park further out in the parking lot when you go shopping. Walk around the block on your breaks at work. Walk around the block after you arrive home from work.

If you cannot find enough opportunities to walk throughout the day, do it at home as part of an exercise routine. Take a 5 minute walk down the street and back each day. Eventually you'll want to be able to reach 10,000 steps in a day.
