If you don't feel like you can jog at all, start out by just jogging to the 1st telephone pole, house, mailbox, whatever. Then walk the rest of the way. After you're comfortable with that, try the next pole, house,mailbox.
Then try alternating, walk to the 1st pole jog to the next pole, walk to the next pole, jog to the next pole. It can be fun challenging yourself. Before you know it, you will be jogging more than you could in the beginning.

For Fat Burning-Just Keep Moving!!! Go for time instead of distance or intensity
No matter what type cardio I am doing-I just keep moving...even if I have to slow it down from a jog to a very slow walk. I started going for time (one hour) instead of distance or intensity. I tell myself to be the last one on the track. Often i get a second wind a can jog more later on
Once I started doing over an hour of cardio (running/walking/jogging) I started seeing a difference around my waistline.
Making sure you are safe and it's daytime (of course) walk/jog/run your exercise in a new direction of your neighbor until you are semi-ďlostĒ. This always doubles the time I tell myself Iím going to jog because I jog until Iím about a block or two away from a landmark I recognize.
I'm never truly lost because my neighborhood is essentially one huge circle, but Iíve increased my exercise, charted new driving shortcuts, and increased my endurance!
