Testimonials

Ellie has been a great motivator for me. I read about her in our newspaper the first year of Healthwalkers and decided that I, too, could walk. She has motivated me by staying on top of the list and also by personally encouraging me by e-mail.

I have been going to Weight Watchers 2 years tomorrow. By walking, riding a bike, exercising and physical therapy I have needed to do I have become more athletic - at 56 years of age! Of course, diet also plays an important role. I have learned how to eat healthy and try to walk every day.

The total amount of weight I have lost because of all these factors is about 72 pounds as of yesterday. I still have at least 24 more pounds to go, but I KNOW I can reach my goal.

Healthwalkers has kept me accountable for recording activities and trying to maintain a status on the front page, even though I've had some surgeries and some medical problems during this time period. I also challenged one HW member to a goal to be higher on the first page by Dec. 10, 2005. I did win the challenge, but I actually think we both won because we are both more active because of this. By challenging her I have also gained a long-distance e-mailing friend.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you, Healthwalkers!




I read the article that Dean Woodbeck wrote for MTU Tech Topics almost a year ago and I saved it. It took a whole year to actually DO something about it, though!

One thing I would enjoy seeing is a count of the number of days of recorded activity in the month. I've been a sporadic exerciser for many years, and my goal this year is to turn this into a HABIT. Being the analyst that I am, seeing numbers and trends is a big motivator for me, so I am really enjoying your site.




Thankyou for all of the encouraging emails I received yesterday regarding my first milestone!  I am so excited to have made it in such a quick time! I am currently in training for the Avon Breast Cancer 3 Day and the Health Walkers site is a great source for motivation!  Every morning after I get back from my walks I go straight to the computer so I can log my miles!  Currently, I am walking an average of 3.5 to 4.5 miles a day.  Next weekend I will be participating in my first 10 mile walk!!!  I am a bit nervous about it but I feel confident that I can complete it.

Thank you again for all of the support and kind messages!





My daughter and I are enjoying the little competitions between the two of us, using your site as a way to measure our progress. Thanks for giving us this opportunity to have fun with our walking!!!! Keep it going! I am getting my mother ready to sign up, too. Three generations!! Too cool!




I love the site.  It was an excellent idea.  I would never have walked on this cold day if it were not for the challenges.  I do have a question, in the summer I love to spend a lot of time in the peddle boat, can I count this under any of the categories? 





I want to thank you for the use of your web site to help me lose the weight I was trying to lose. Now that I have met my goal I will be dropping out of your program. Thanks again. I encourage others to use the site as well. Keep up the good work. Yours is the best site of its kind I have found anywhere!




It's been a lot of help to get started with some type of program that doesn't involve running right away. I have had 3 stress fractures in about 13 months and can not do any running this year. This has been a help to watch the miles accumulate on this site as I am developing a base for marathon training (for a fall marathon-walking). I only log miles that I have walked as part of an exercise period. I walk about 2-3 miles at work but do not count this. I like the option of setting the goals of walking across each state. It makes it a bit more of a challenge and fun.

Thanks for the great site and keep up the good work.




I am so excited about joining Health Walkers. I've been a fitness walker since last fall. I try to walk at least an hour a day. I also do aerobics and/or weight training 5 days a week. I can feel my competative side coming out when I look at the miles logged in by other members. I'm ready to help my team when the next team event starts. 

Thanks for the support and keep up the good work.




I really like the “Random Chance Survival” walking event! It promotes consistency; getting out every day and adding some miles. You can't just pile up a bunch of miles one day and then goof off (something I'm exceptionally good at ) since you don't know what days will be excluded. It's helped me go just a bit farther on my "lazy days" than I otherwise would have.

Thanks for a well-thought-out event!




I recently finished my 2,500 miles. I started the "Health Walkers" walking program in January of 2002. This program has really motivated me to walk. In January of 2004 I had a spinal fusion. This stopped my walking for only two weeks. Then in August I had knee surgery which stopped my walking for another two weeks. This month I have aready walked 113 miles which is the most for a while. If it were not for Health Walkers, I'm sure I would have given up walking. This is really a great organization.

Thank you for Health Walkers.
