usually i lose around two lbs so probably two lbs for u too

it would depend on what you eat, your size, and how fast you walk.

You would need to walk 10 miles or so every day. This also depends on how on long you have to lose the weight.

it depends on how fast you are walking the miles as to burn 30 pounds you will need to burn 105000 calories and the best way to burn fat which I'm guessing is your goal is to change your diet but remember don't lose more then 2 pounds a week or you could risk losing your muscle mass

In order to lose one pound, you must create a deficit of 3,500 calories, so to lose five pounds, you would need to burn five times as many calories, or 17,500 calories. The number of calories you will burn by walking depends on your weight and the speed at which you walk. At a moderate pace of 3 miles per hour, most people will burn between 60 and 70 calories per mile. Therefore, to lose five pound by walking alone, you'll need to walk at least 250 miles.

you can not lose a full pound from a mile, but you can burn up to 240 calories in just one mile of walking

It really depends on the person.

There are 3,500 calories in a pound. How much a person weighing 212 pounds, burns walking a mile, depends on how fast they are walking. At the speed of 20 minutes per mile, a person weighing 212 pounds would have to walk close to 32 miles to burn 1 pound.

You are probably "just right." Exercise will firm you up--walking or pilates or yoga will do the trick.

depends on how much you weigh and what you eat along with the walking. you wont loose weight exercising if you dont balance it with the right foods. I know the more you weigh the more calories you burn.

About 1000, more if you exercise. Each hour walking is about 100 calories.

Losing weight or shedding pounds by walking is generally related to your own weight and the pace of your walking. For instance, a person who weighs 175 pounds shall end up losing or burning 5 calories per minute when he/she walks at an average speed of 3 miles an hour; the more your weight, you lose more weight as on an average, you lose an extra 0.5 pound with every additional 10 pounds of your weight.

You can lose 120 calories depending on how fast you walk. I'm 15 and weigh 95 pounds so I would lose less :P. GOOD LUCK!

The number of miles a person must run to lose 35 pounds in 5 weeks depends a lot on the size of the person and the speed at which you run. Running at the fairly moderate pace of 5 MPH, a person who weighs 165 pounds will burn about 126 calories. You need to burn 3500 calories to lose one pound. This means that you'd need to run almost 28 miles in 5 weeks to lose one pound, and 35 times that, or about 972 miles, to lose 25 pounds. However, running will increase your overall metabolism so you won't actually need this many miles, and if you cut some calories out of your diet you will lose weight faster.

It is possible to lose about two pounds or more a week by walking for one hour a day. Losing weight also depends on the types of foods that are eaten and what a person does when they are not out walking. A ten to fifteen pound loss is about average for this type of exercise.

It takes approximately 77,000 steps to lose one pound. This means it would take 231,000 steps to lose 3 pounds. This is approximately 105 miles at 2,200 steps per mile.

There is a strange phenomena in the weight loss world when it comes to walking backwards, many claim to lose pounds a day from walking far distances backwards.

Depending on the speed that you walk, you could burn between 200 and 400 calories per hour by walking. Assuming you walk 1/2 hour each way every day, and you don't increase your calorie intake to compensate, you could lose 2 pounds a month.

You will lose 0 pounds unless you exercise and eat healthy.

depends how long you play. It takes approx. 3500 cals to lose a pound so about 35 miles for the average athlete

To burn 10 pounds it would probably take 25 to 35 miles if you just ran to burn weight. Diet and excercise are best when used in combination.
