Years ago...like 15 years ago...I lost 10 pounds in 3months by following weight watchers and walking daily for around 60 minutes. That was the only exercise I did! They say the best time of day to exercise is the time of day that's easiest for you to be consistent with. Back then, evenings worked best for me but these days I need to get my workout in first thing in the morning. Walking is great exercise!
If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up!

I'd like to hear your thoughts. Has anyone hear had success losing weight through walking? What have you done? What are the best times to walk? etc.
Hello, good morning
When I started dieting, I eat a balanced diet first two months since I started walking, then complemented with weight exercises, such as dumbbells, crunches, leg exercises.
Then I started to ride rollers, the result is much like walking.
Perdes weight slowly but then you can keep it.
It is best to walk in the afternoon or in the morning when the sun already, then you can encourage start running.
Walking is a great form of exercise for people who have never done any form of exercise or gym workouts. Just start out walking as long as you can then increase the length of your walk and speed up the pace. There's a lot of debates going on now about whether walking burns more calories that jogging. Walking can be just as effective as jogging if you walk at a faster pace for a longer period. And your less prone to injury through walking.
First you must be in a calorie deficit in order to lose weight. ANY exercise that puts you in a deficit is helpful to lose weight. You can lose weight by dieting alone but there are many benifits to adding exercise to you daily/weekly routine. The least amount of change to your normal routine that provides the most weight lose is the best route as you will most likely stick to it. As an example instead of eating at a 1000cal deficit or exercising to put you in a 1000cal deficit eat at a 500cal deficit and burn 500cal though exercise.
