so simple, yet' literally one of the greatest natural movements one can do, as well as being very enjoyable, so much can be accomplished while walking deep thoughts, learning something you may want to remember just keep repeating it with focused intention and voila you not only learn the thing you wanted, but the time passes faster.
Attach a big dream to a small beginning, and it won't be small for too long.

Yes! Combined with eating right and within your calorie range, it is great.
My exercise routine is 90% walking or walking videos and I am losing good amounts each week so far. The biggest advice I can give you is to challenge yourself. Set up walking goals (such as distance/speed), and keep working towards them. Also vary your routes as long as the routes are safe. These three things will keep it interesting for quite a while. I'm in my eleventh week right now of doing this and have not lost interest in my walks. It is the easiest to do sometimes because all you need are good walking shoes and an appropriate outfit.

NO. I wish. You lose weight by expending more calories than you take in. Walking alone doesn't burn a whole lot of calories. That said, walking is a very healthy exercise. I walk everyday, and it makes me fell better physically, emotionally, and mentally.

I would agree with everyone else. I've been walking regularly for the past two months and I can see a difference. It has quickly become my favorite way of exercising. I walk at a good pace around 3.1-3.3 for 3 miles.
Yes, you can lose weight by walking and eating healthy, drinking lots of water and getting enough sleep. So far I have lost over 15 pounds in two months from walking. Plus side to walking: it is easy, free, and you can do it anywhere.

When I started my weight loss adventure two years ago all I felt comfortable enough to do was to walk 2.5 miles a day six days a week when it was darker out so no one could see me. Between walking and watching my portion sizes I managed to drop 15 pounds in three months which might not be a lot to some people, but at the time it made me feel like a million dollars!!! When I first started it took me almost an hour to walk those miles, but now I can have them done in 28-30 minutes!!

There are members who will tell you how they lost 100+ pounds just by walking and watching what they ate. Do you know member INDYGIRL ? She started her journey at 460+ pounds and she had mobility issues. Some days, she wasn't able to walk, so she did upper body exercises. In two years, she's lost half that weight.
Plus, it does not cost a lot and you can do it anywhere.
