    Walking.

    I walk roughly 10-12 times around a campground that I stay at daily (I LOVE! Camping!)
    I'd say it's probably 1/4th a mile around. I need to lose serious weight (I weigh 165 pounds)
    I'm going to set up a "Schedule" to walk around it at certain times for a period of time
    Like Walk around lake 4 times every hour or two hours
    Can anyone help me do this?
    I need some major weight loss (Hoping to be 120-130) by summer.
    I'm 14 and my body means everything to me

    Walking and getting more exercise is great, but exercise alone does very little for weight loss. You'll see quicker and more effective weight loss results by eating a healthier diet

    Don't base your health on your weight - base it on your BMI. BMI takes into account height as well as weight, and I think age too. I would recommend calculating your BMI before you think about exercise. Also before you start exercising, you need to set a goal of how much weight you want to lose. Your schedule should be based on how much weight you want to lose.
    I hope I helped a little bit

    I would advise against using BMI. And no @lucygoose, it does not take your age into account.. Just height and weight. Because he is a 14 year old boy, it might not be effective to use the standard BMI scale that is used for grown adults. It also does not take muscle mass into account.
    You can figure out your ideal body weight by using your height. Ideally, it is 106lbs for the first 5ft, and then +6 pounds for every inch beyond 5ft. So for example, if you are 5'4, your ideal body weight would be 130.

    Lol that method I described also does not take muscle mass into account. You're just ripped @John

    Bro, I would highly recommend jogging some of those "rounds".

    I remember reading somewhere, you burn double maybe even triple the calories from jogging/running over walking,

    Also, if you are serious about weight loss, which seems like you are because you said "your body means everything", try some HIIT, High Intensity Interval Training. 3x a week. It speeds up your metabolism for I believe up to 24 hours after performing which burns much more calories.

    Yes, I am a fitness freak
