    The rule of thumb is 100 calories a mile. So for jogging its more like 200 calories in a half hour.

    At your weight you probably should be under a doctor's supervision. There may be underlying medical problems that caused your weight gain. and your weight may have also caused some medical issues that need to be treated.

    The 1500 - 1800 calories a day is a good and reasonable goal. but you will have to be patient. You'll be on that diet for at least 6 months. as far as exercise goes - its a great idea. start off with walking 15 minutes a day, everyday. and then every week try to add 2 minutes to your time. Maybe add some walk/jogging when you have lost 40 pounds or up to 40 minutes.

    It doesn't quite work like that. If you ate 1500 calories and burned 500, you are at net 1000. That is probably at least 500 under what would be maintenance, so you'd lose about a pound or so a week.
