Read what women who participated in a similar program had to say: 

“The program really stimulates a ‘desire’ to walk! I feel now I want to walk- an important part of my day!” 

“I have been very successful at building time for regular activity/exercise into what was previously a very sedentary  lifestyle. If it worked for me, it can work for others!”

“It’s nice to be connected to something or someone who understands what you went through.”
