    i walk my little baby dachshund Lily about 3 times a week, i don't know if this counts as a walking exercise, it fills like a workout when i am done. Everyone needs to add walking as a part of weight loss. Among other workouts. - 5/26/2016 3:33:07 PM
  • For the beginner, I think it's good one. - 2/24/2016 1:40:46 AM

    Thanks Jen. Great article, great help, especially the RPE method. I'm sure your other readers would gain something from this too. http://jvz1.com/c/389373/96477

    Walking with intention is always a good exercise. I continue to wish that Spark People would allow you to record intensity of a work out - calories really vary. - 5/12/2015 1:18:12 PM

    I have been back and forth with getting into moving like I should and this article was a good foundation to follow. My only question is what do you recommend for warming up and for cooling down? - 5/12/2015 7:14:10 AM
  • I've dreaded any kind of exercise for so long but actually look forward to starting this tomorrow! I have chronic back and hip pain due to an extremely stubborn spondylo, but I thinkpart of my problem is that I haven't exercised in so long - "use it or lose it". I'm 69 and need to lose 132 lb, so I'm here for the long run (and there's a laugh for you)! Anyway, I am truly inspired by this article. Thank you! - 3/16/2015 2:24:57 AM

    Great article. It will be a drag to start during winter but there's no better time to start than the present. - 2/1/2015 3:44:32 PM
  • even though I go to the gym 3-4 times a week I dont like walking outside, so this is a good idea to ease me into it - 1/24/2015 3:20:22 PM
