In brief: It's good for you

Hi. Walking BRISKLY for 30 minutes daily is very good for you in terms of physical fitness and cardiovascular health.
Its effect on weight loss is minimal, but does help. Your BMI isn't far off goal, so with lifestyle changes alone, you may be able to achieve your goal. Good luck and live healthily!
