    Could you recommend a good pedometer? I have tried a couple and they don’t seem to work very well.

    A lot of my friends have luck with the ones through Nintendo DS Personal Trainer Walking. I’d just try one that’s a little more expensive. The ones that tend to be under $10 don’t function too well. The ones I use I’ve received from companies promoting things so I can’t recommend a specific one. I’m sorry!
