I am sticking to a 1200 calorie a day diet and trying to do a bit of walking each day is that the best way to lose weight?

In brief: Walking as exercise

Yes. If you walk briskly enough to get your heart rate to about 120 to 130 and keep it there for at least 20 minutes daily.
Remember walking as exercise does not mean sauntering. It means actively walking to burn off excess fat and sugar.
