Yes, but we are not consistent on our walking. Due to several circumstances, we have not done it consistently. Smiley Sad

Yes, walking can be painful. Yet I take aspirn after a long walk or before. And also drink water after a walk. You just have to find what is comfortable for you. Someone always listen they just might not reply.Smiley Happy

Nope I Live Alone & rarely walk unless its a must I have endured being 100% Disabled for 20 years, I learned long ago to not react to pain since the reaction makes it worse, I honestly wish walking wasnt so painful yet all activities have been beyond endurable for so long I have learned to accept the pain & simply allow it to pass through me, I have been known to say I am pain I'm nolonger in pain I simply am Pain, but life is painful & I will admit waking every day hyperventalating from the pain isn't fun but at least I get 3 to 5 hours sleep a night, I will also say when asleep I can't mentally block reacting to pain ergo the Hyperventalating wakes me, oh well as my Dad often said Life Sucks then you Die, yet I don't know how to die & honestly that is one state of being I dont care to embrace ever LOL
Nice to actually say all that & think some other will read it & possibly it may help them to learn to simply accept the hand you were dealt as I have :-)

yes, I walk with my 8 yr. old autistic grandson while he crusies along beside me while I walk 5 miles aday. As soon as I park my car he grabs his helmet, gives me a kiss, say I love you Nana, ride bike please. I love it he doesn't talk to everyone but he ALWAYS talks to me.

Yes I have a buddy.   We motivate each to get out and walk and then I set the pace

Sometimes our best motivators are friends or even our dogs!  Do you have a buddy that helps you get out and move?  I have a friend who texts me at least twice a week to walk for 5 miles - it is great and we love using the time to catch up with each other!  How about you?

Sometimes we have just do things on our on. Wish you lived close by. I have had to push my self a little at a time. First it was just getting the mailbox for me. Then it was to the house next door.

You can and will make a choice that will be of great value for you.
