To lose weight? Exercise is almost entirely irrelevant. Screw the walk. Just take in less than your body burns as a sedentary lump. Calculate your BMR, adjust for sedentary lumpenness, and maintain a deficit of ~500 kcal below that number every day. It's not rocket surgery. Once the weight is where you want it, stop maintaining that 500kcal deficit.

Exercise has tremendous health benefits, but it's so mostly meaningless to weight loss that I really hate seeing it brought up in weight loss discussions. Really - which is harder? Not eating that 500 kcal donut, or running for 2 hours to burn it off?
