Walking for weight loss is a great way to get the ball rolling towards fitness. If you have not engaged in any exercise for number of years and you have reached the decision that you want to lose weight and are really prepared to do something about it, then exercise will play a major and vital role in your success.

Conventional wisdom suggests that you will have to do cardio 3 or 4 times a week for at least half an hour. Cardio exercises may include running, jogging, cycling, stepper, and aerobics and so on. However at the point of starting your fitness levels at the present time may not allow you to do these types of exercises. If you try to push yourself too hard, all that will happen is that you will give up trying and come to detest whatever cardio exercise you are doing.

Fitness and weight loss is progressive. Meaning that it is going to take time to get to where you want to be, and that it has to be done in stages. You are not going to start exercising on Monday and be fit the following Sunday. The same can be said of trying to lose weight. The more you try to force yourself initially, the less chance of success you will have. You need to accept where you are now and what your capabilities are at the present time. Once you have done this, realise that as long as you keep doing what you need to be doing on a regular basis, and increase in small steps, then you will eventually reach your goals.
