I walk 4 times a day for dogs! That is all the initiative I need, Brett. Since adding two 10-year-old dogs to our one 15-year-old old last summer, my husband and I have to share the dog walking duties. He takes the old guy on a shorter, slower walk and I take the two younger dogs on a longer, faster walk. Since July, I’ve lost 15 lbs without changing my diet or anything else. Living in a townhome without a yard makes walking dogs a necessity and it’s turned into a great health benefit, too.
