Default Excersis help.... Should I include something else this soon?

I've been trying for many years to lose weight. While visitng my folks in Ky I used their scale... 270.5lbs! My heaviest ever!! So, while there I made the choice of starting to walk and take vits, herb ect and watch what I eat. Fast forward 2 weeks (started last week as 4 days after we got home my suster went into labor and I spent the weekend by her)I am taking mega green tea extract, fish oil, pre-natal vits and cinnamon extract(to help maintain my blood sugar which tends to dip when dieting) I walk everyday (except once I didn't) for the past 8 days. Only.36 of a mile for 12 min, but seeing as I haven't really excersised in years... better then nothing. I'm keeping my calories under 1600, but am still working on lower my fat and rasing my protein... Anyways....
I can tell that my body is changing... Probably water weight I guess.... but my shirts aren't as tight and the part under my chest and above my belly button is getting a little smaller.... I wonder if I should try protein powders?? I don't want to get all flabby..... HELP! TIA~ Tina

I wouldn't add anything else, just focus on caloric intake and exercise.

If you are eating a balanced food plan I don't see why you would need protein powders, right at this moment. If you are eating 3 meals/day with 2 or 3 snacks you should be fine for now. I would recommend eating more protein when you are exercising more OR when you start weight training, at that time you may or may not need more protein...

Here is a great article How Much Protein Do You Need? ... I aim for 100+gr of protein because I weight train a lot and I need the extra protein to build muscle and it makes me feel fuller longer too...
