Is walking a legitimate form of exercise?

Hey fellow Scale Warriors

I have heard conflicting arguments when it comes to walking = exercise. I'm sure it's got to be better than nothing, but I also hear that unless you're breaking a sweat, it's not real exercise. Thoughts?

Hi Overrun. My doctor told me that walking is a good way to exercise...especially if you have a lot of weight to lose and mobility is an issue, and also if you suffer from joint pain. Combined with a good diet, walking can contribute to weight loss and the more you do it the faster you'll get and the farther you'll go. A good pedometer will help you track your progress. Good luck!
