Exercise for your health!
It has been calculated that 1 pound of body fat is equal to 3500 calories.
This means that in order to lose 1 pound we have to walk for about 12.5 hours.
So don't expect fast weight loss and remember to eat sensibly.

The mood and feel-good benefits, however, are immediate and
the health benefits of exercise are endless.
So GET ACTIVE!!
