I've been wondering so now I'm asking. A while back (until I hurt my foot) I started faithfully walking on a treadmill. I walked for a total of 4 months. My regimen was:
Tuesday: 2 miles
Wednesday: 2 miles
Thursday 2 miles
Saturday: 10 miles
Sunday: 7 miles
My pace was consistently between 3.5 and 3.7 mph.
It did take me a month and a half to work up to this regimen, and in the entire 4 months I lost only 20 lbs. In addition to excercise I was strictly watching what I was eating. Seems to me I should have shed more than 20 lbs (I had another good 20-30lbs that I could have lost). Is my thinking right, or was I just wanting to drop the weight too quickly? Anyone have an opinion?
