When I started walking every day, my weight was dropping off tremendously. I felt stronger, healthier and lighter on my feet. It was at this point that I decided to take action and lose the weight I was carrying. I didn’t know how to lose the weight or how to do it in such a way that I would keep it off. I just knew I wanted to lose some of the weight and I wanted to do it quickly.
For most of my weight loss plan, I went to a gym for most of the sessions. I was working out to develop a muscular frame and I needed ripped abs, but I wasn’t getting them without putting in the work. There is absolutely nothing wrong with working out in a gym, but I wanted to do things differently. I wanted to fit in more and I wanted to work out with friends. I didn’t have time to visit the gym everyday so instead I would meet my friends at the park for walks and get some fresh air and get some energy.
The first month or two I didn’t lose any weight at all. I was losing inches every single week, but I just kept going back to the gym for more weight loss. My metabolism was working fine, but it just wasn’t burning calories like it should be. I figured out that by adding more walking distance into my weekly schedule, I could burn off more of my fat and I would lose some weight. It took me about six months to lose about a hundred pounds total.
The truth is I didn’t need to lose weight so much since I was already keeping it off, but I wanted to be more physically active. I had also gained a few pounds during that period because I wasn’t eating as much as I should have. When I started walking every day, I wanted to hit my target rate and burn off my fat faster. I was getting close to my goal pace, but I wanted to make sure I wasn’t speeding up my fat loss by walking slower than I should have been.
I started walking every day to help me lose weight. I was getting faster and was seeing results, but I still wasn’t satisfied. I wanted to be able to walk at a normal pace, but at the same time burn off more calories. I knew if I added thirty minutes per day to my walk sessions, I would be able to hit my target rate and start burning off calories quicker.
I started walking at an easy pace and gradually ramped it up. Now, I walk every day at a brisk pace. Now, not only am I burning off calories faster, I am also keeping unwanted pounds off. I would recommend anyone’s brisk pace walking as an exercise routine to anyone who is looking to lose weight and build muscles.
