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.

The best!: Walking is the exercise! fish swim, birds fly, land-based mammals walk. Except for last 50 years, we spent most of our time standing/walking. Is walking 30 min then sitting all day good exercise? It beats 24 hours of just sitting. (see "23.5 hours" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=auains6higo ) even better? Sit fewer than 3 hours a day & add 2+ good years to your life. http://tinyurl.com/6q69wtl.
