In brief: Start slow & buildup

An early milestone may simply be walking to the mailbox, walking a quarter of a mile, walking for five minutes or walking for 15 minutes.

In brief: 150 min per week

According to the national weight control registry and american college of sports medicine, 150 minutes per week on average is required to maintain weight loss.
