Walking enough?

I posted this under another thread,but I thought I would post it on its own.
I have started to walk 2 miles every morning and want to start walking 2 in the evening. Not sure if that will happen, but I will stick with the AM walk. I have 125 to lose and was wondering if the walking is enough. I also watch my calories and try to keep it at 1000-1100 a day. I am on the Special K diet so that is helping, although I am starving. Any insight?

Walking that much and eating so little will only have a negative affect on your health. You need to eat more if you're going to be walking that much.

Walking about 15-20 minutes after you eat will help your metabolism keep it's speed up, so that's a really good choice! I would also reccomend that you change how you're eating too, though. A better % is 30% veggies, 30% protein and 30% carbs, with a sharp eye on your fat intake. Hope this helps!

I walk as soon as I wake up and eat after I am done. When its cooler at night I will start to walk then as well, probably after dinner.

More Calories and Lots of Water

You sound so motivated!!! It sounds like you need more calories though. The formula is to take you weight times 13, 14 or 16 based upon your activity level and arrive at a daily caloric level and then subtract 500 calories per day if you want to lose 1 lb per week and 500 increments thereafter to increase weight loss. But be careful of 'starvation symdrome' ( in the face of too low a calorie level the body protects itself and becomes stubborn about losing and makes you crazy hungry). Eat lots of protein and 'good' carbs.
