You always go the same distance.

Look for ways to increase your daily number of steps, advises James O. Hill, PhD, founder of America on the Move and a professor at the University of Colorado in Denver. "The more you walk, the more apt you are to maintain a healthy body weight." Grab a pedometer and strive to take 2,000 more steps daily, working toward a goal of at least 10,000 a day. Hill suggests: Return the shopping cart to the store and use the upstairs bathroom when you're hanging out downstairs and vice versa.
