Hi Ginny. Losing weight only through exercising takes a great deal of time. For instance, a one mile walk is equivalent to approximately 100 kcalories (depending on your weight and how fast you walk). One pound of fat is worth about 3500 kcalories, so in order to lose one lb of fat, you would need to walk 35 miles! BUT, a steady decline in weight can occur with your exercise routine and a moderate reduction in calorie intake.
One comment about Taylor's advise concerning carbohydrate intake. There is no evidence (believe me, I have researched this) that eating more fat and less carbohydrates causes your body to burn more fat. In fact, some people take this advice and end up consuming more calories because they are eating more fat! In which case, you will store more fat. The best advice is to stay away from simple sugars and high fatty processed foods. Keep exercising. As you get more fit, you will be able to burn more calories. It will happen, be patient.
