I walk 5 days a week and love it. It is my main form of exercise. It might not be as glamorous as running but just as effective and a lot less painful.

As someone now missing most of a disk in my lower spine, I LOVE walking--it is great when you're recovering from surgery, or just trying to stay healthy!

I don't know why people always assume exercise equals running. You don't have to run to get fit & stay fit--you just have to MOVE! And walking is great low-impact high-benefit exercise!

Walking is great for you. I lost 32 lbs just by walking. But by that time you will have found something else to take over from it.

Good luck

Enjoy your walks you will see weight drop and health come back - I hope you can walk outside to enjoy the beauty of nature and breath the fresh air - a double bonus
