Yes: It is a great place to start. A brisk walk for 45-60 minutes on a regular basis will greatly enhance your weight loss and overall fitness and cardiovascular health.

Definitely a good: Place to start. Any activity where you are getting up and about and getting your heart rate up is exercise, even if it's house chores.
