Wt loss. Do your best with graded walking. Movement is important. But a strategic diet is essential. Eliminate white sugar, brown sugar, high fructose corn syrup, saturated fats, and simple carb foods such as pastry, cakes, cookies, white breads - and eat whole veg and fruit and very lean meats and nuts. Walk before breakfast if you can. Have only protein for breakfast. Exercise again.
