Jessica Simpson seems to be kicking up her weight loss a notch. There have been some rumors in the past week that she is only losing one pound a week. While that would be great for all of us, it is not enough for her to make her payout goal from the company. Well, it would have been if she had been losing that much from the beginning, but she had some setbacks. I think her buying pedometers for her group shows that she is finally committed to this thing, plus the Tweet that advertised her gift. You know, because you need to make sure you are telling people that you bought something for others.
“Just bought all the girls in my @weightwatchers group pedometers to track their steps. 10,000 steps a day = 5 miles! Let's step it up!” I had a pedometer once in one of my many efforts to lose weight. It worked just fine, but I was obsessed with it and would walk back and forth all the time just to watch the numbers increase. The problem is that when you are in an office there are a limited number of places one can walk and I found myself headed to vending machines or the refrigerator the most and it actually ended up costing me weight. I think if you were away from temptation or had more willpower than myself, which is none, then it would be something that can really help. So, how many steps do most people take in a day?
