When you are starting to lose weight, setting a difficult goal in the beginning might only discourage you to continue with your exercise routine. It's best to set goals that are easier to achieve, and then increase gradually. And if you are to ask me if there's an easy way to lose weight fast, I'll tell you right away that it's walking.
