We've all got to start some where and for those that are morbidly obese, walking is a great first step-no pun intended. Most people even those 100 lbs overweight can manage a short walk every day or every other day. The idea is to get started. Small brisk walks are easier on the joints, and wont cause the same level of pain jogging, or other strenuous exercises cause and this is key. No one will keep up a regime if it hurts. Period.
So remember, starting somewhere, even short walks to the end of your neighborhood street and back is better than sitting at home and looking out the window or spending all of your free time on the internet. The worst thing you can do is settle into a sitting routine. Whether its in front of the television set or computer, it's a bad habit, and will let the weight pile on. So, with that, I gotta get off this computer, and go find something that keeps me moving. You do the same. Keep on moving, and don't give up! Remember weight loss should never just be about what a scale says, it should be about health..
