In brief: That depends

You burn about 100 calories per mile that you walk.
How fast are you walking? If you walk 3 miles in a day - you can burn about 300 calories. You need to burn about 3,500 calories to lose one pound. So - it is possible to lose weight if you are burning more calories than you are taking in.
