10,000 steps a day - 2008 goal met, now what?

At the start of the year, I set a goal of walking 10,000 steps a day - 3.66 million steps for the year. I hit that goal last week (yay for ahead of schedule!)... but despite walking over 1500 miles this year, my weight is the same. I have had the plateau from hell, but I liked having the big goal to shoot for throughout the year.

Any suggestions for a 2009 goal that I can work towards? I liked the 10,000 steps but feel like I should do something different (since I'm not losing weight). I thought about maybe aiming for an hour of exercise a day (or 365 hours total for the year), but not sure how I would best measure this - a two or three hour walk (which I usually do on the weekends) doesn't seem fair compared to an hour kickin' butt on an elliptical.

Suggestions welcomed! Thank you :)
