walking off weight?

I am currently walking about 2.5k 5 days a week. This takes me an hour to complete each day. I do not consume any junk food and stay away from most meat. I do take multi-vitamins, protein supplements, etc. I need to lose around 60 pounds. Just wondering if anyone has had good results from walking off weight, if they know what kind of results I should expect (I've only been doing this for a month) and if anyone has any tips to speed the process along. Thanks.

    After having both of my children, I lost 60 and 70 lbs within four months of walking one day and doing aerobics every other day. Walking is great, but you need to add some weight training and toning exercises into your weekly routine. It takes time and their's no fast road to fitness. I've tried eliminating meat from my diet before and found that I need the meat (chicken especially) for protein, which is essential in building muscle. Set short term goals for weight loss and keep a food diary, which will help you see how healthy you truly are eating. It always helps to have support from family and friends, too. Good luck!

    I personally have never "walked off weight" but our campus is awfully huge and I estimate that I walk about 2-3 miles a day and it really helps me in speeding my metabolism, moving my bowel daily, and just as an act of exercise instead of hitting the gym with the so hectic schedule.

    BUT, I do agree that, if you can and have the ability (eve if you dont) try to hit the gym and run as little as 10-15 minutes each time or even the elliptical and that will have a bigger beneficial result than trying to walk off weight.
