Good for you!! Walking is a great exercise and the perfect way to start - if you don't own a good pedometer, I suggest getting one - I like the Omron HJ710 or HJ112 - and keep track of your steps - for the first week or so, just track your ordinary walking level - then increase it a little each week or two. It's a simple program but one that can keep you motivated for a long time.

Have a good walk. It is good to start slowly and build from there. Taking a very long walk or walking too fast can cause pain and that may slow you down some. Build on length of walk and speed as you go. It is always a process.
