Everybody knows that weight loss is not easy. In fact, in order for us to lose weight and keep it off, one really has to commit to a lifestyle change.
Some folks may be wondering if they can lose weight by walking. After all, we want to do the best exercises that will burn the most calories. For many, the more calories we burn, the better we feel about our workout.
