I know walking inside including using Leslie's various walking programs has helped me and been a great way to exercise especially if I can't get outside. I think for me I get more of a workout doing that than if I'm walking outside actually (like today walking outside and stopping for traffic lights)

I do her 3 mile workout for 46 minutes off of YouTube for my first cardio of the day and I'm drenched in sweat after, on purpose as I tend to turn off the air in my room and zip up a fleece jacket over my sweat pants and long sleeve shirt. If I don't warm up like this my joints ache.

Leslie Sansone's Walk Away The Pounds videos can be great exercise. I have some at home and they are more than "walking in place". She has you move forwards, backwards, and to the side. Personally, I have to get my arms more involved than what she demonstrates to ensure I am getting my heart rate into the cardio zone.
In addition to the exercise suggestions the other posters have provided, I would like to clarify something you said. Weight loss is more about nutrition (80%) than exercise (20%). You can't out exercise lousy food choices. If you haven't started using the SP nutrition tracker, I'd encourage you to do that.
According to what I read on Leslie's own site, she says between 100 and 150 calories per mile and then more or less based on weight and body conditioning. Anyway, there's a bunch you can do right in front of the TV in a five foot circle if you have a smart TV and find the SparkPeople, Leslie Sansone and many other videos on Youtube and Amazon videos if you have Prime. All within a five foot circle and nobody watching.

You might also want to check out the workouts on SparkPeople TV (click on Videos at the top of the page) b/c many of those can be done without equipment, and all can be done at home.

I"m trying to become more active during the day. I work from home but usually I'm pretty sedentary all day unless I go to the gym (3 x a week). I want to add in more workouts at home but I wasn't sure how to do this as I don't like walking on roads and I don't have equipment at home. After researching at home, I came across walking in place (eg leslie sansone's videos) and it seems like a good option for me but i'm wondering if it still has the same affects/benefits with weight loss. Has anyone else had success losing weight with it? Thanks.
