Exercise is a vital part of losing weight and toning up your body. Things like housework help take off the calories in small doses it depends on how intense it is but it all helps. I walk up and down 3 flights of stairs for 10 mins twice a day which shaves off 104 cals. Walking at a brisk pace 3.2 miles twice a day shaves off over 500 cals. It doesn't have to be major plus whatever cals you have cut out of your diet works a treat.  
Losing weight by cutting cals only works in the short term because as the pounds come off you are taking pressure off your heart and it doesn't have to work as hard. Hence why you gotta do more exercise to lose the weight. No-one said it would be easy.

Exercise is useful (helps dampen our appetite once we get used to regular exercise, and does burn a few calories).  But I think activity is even more useful (avoiding sedentary activities such as sitting most of the day).  A lot of people seem to have a problem with seeing food as a source of comfort and entertainment, and not as filling a nutritional need (so, quality and quantity may be poorly chosen and heavily influenced by food ads and food additives and sweeteners).

I was only able to lose weight when I got a better handle on my anxiety levels (I'd been eating very healthy for several years, but excessive eating remained a problem).  Reducing my intake was helped by using smaller spoons & forks (slows me down, gives my appestat a better chance to notice I've ingested food) along with smaller serving bowls (makes it more challenging to overeat).  As even one extra spoonful or forkful of food per meal can add up to a pound's weight gain each week.

Exercise and stop eating simple carbs!!! You need to take in less cal. then what your body burns.

Calories are the key to weight loss. In order to lose weekly weight you must make daily sacrifices like cutting calories from food and burning more calories with exercise. Accomplish your ideal physique by being realistic about your capabilities while also setting healthy and achievable weight-loss goals. Begin  by calculating the calories you need to give up each day in order to reach your final goal.

Multiply your weight by your activity level to estimate your daily caloric needs for maintaining normal bodily functions and current weight. Before you can reduce your calorie intake you have to know what it takes per day to function. If you are an active man multiply your weight by 15 but if you are inactive multiply by 13. If you are an active women multiply your weight by 12 but if you are inactive multiply by 10.

Subtract 500 or 1,000 from your calories needed to maintain current weight. Lose 1 to 2 lbs. per week by reducing your calorie intake by 500 to 1,000 per day. For example, if you require 2,000 calories per day but want to lose 1 lb. per week you must limit your daily calorie intake to 1,500.

Your method for achieving the goal and short-term tasks you need to accomplish to meet that goal. Record your goal and tasks in a food and fitness journal to keep track of your success. Medical professionals recommend losing no more than 2 lbs. a week but you should consult your physician for specifics based on your health.

Count calories consumed per day. Foods containing carbohydrates, protein or fat are sources of calories. For every 1 g of carbohydrate or protein you consume you also take in 4 calories. For every 1 g of fat you consume you take in 9 calories and for every 1 g of alcohol you consume you take in 7 calories. Check nutrition facts labels for calories per serving size of the foods you eat and write you food calories down in the journal to keep track.

Count calories you burn from exercise each day. You can burn 100 to 500 calories every day by engaging in at least 30 minutes of exercise. Double what you burn by working out for a full hour. Go for a daily walk, ride a bike or try various cardio machines at the gym to boost your daily calorie burn.

Total your calories consumed and calories burned from exercise and record the result in your journal. At the end of each day calculate your calories consumed from food and the calories you burned with exercise. The total should not exceed your daily goal for calorie intake. If you take in more calories than intended, you might need to change your food consumption, reduce your portions or add more exercise.
If you want to burn a lot of cal. learn how to use the kettle bell!

The Peak 8 routine it will quickly raise your heart rate 8 times for very short bursts, with a cooling
down period in between. Ideally you’ll be sprinting or cycling full throttle for 30 seconds with a 90
second cool down in between each outburst.
This is the fastest way to lose fat and build muscle in the body. Peak 8 actually stimulates the growth
hormone in the body. I encourage you to visit Dr Mercola’s site to learn more about Peak 8 fitness
because I personally feel that it is one of the best ways to exercise, especially considering the speed at
which you can lose fat and build muscle.
I highly recommend you read this article and watch the videos on the page. It will give you all the
information you need to know about Peak 8 – Flood Your Body With This “Youth Hormone” In Just 20
Minutes.
What you eat after Peak 8 training does matter
It’s recommended that you do not eat sugar or carbohydrate for 2 hours after the Peak 8 exercise
because these foods can impact the release of the growth hormone in the body. The links are

Figure your heart rate by this formula
The Karvonen Formula is a mathematical formula that helps you determine your target heart rate zone.
The formula involves using your maximum heart rate (MHR) minus your age to come up with a target
heart rate range (which is a percentage of your MHR). Staying within this range will help you work
most effectively during your cardio workouts.
First thing in the morning before you get out of bed have a clock with a second hand and check your
resting heart rate then figure your rate by the Karvonen Formula
The following link will help you figure your heart rate by the Karvonen Formula.

You burn 30 percent more fat from doing cardio after a weights session as opposed to cardio on its own

Before doing anything get the OK from your Dr.

This is very funniest question. Yes, but there are a plenty of ways to reduce our weight without doing any exercise. As per my advice you go for a walk in the early morning, take a fruit juice, take a low calorie food.

Exercise is not actually that crucial to losing weight, as most people think.

Diet is most important. Cut your calories, drink lots of water, and get 7-9 hours of sleep each night.

It still comes down to ;   calories in, calories out

If You eat less and exercise more, You WILL lose weight

Exercise can be as simple as walking EVERY day,  (20 minutes, 2 or 3x's per day)

Eating less can be as simple as cutting fat and sugar

It still comes down to ;  calories in, calories out

When You start dropping weight with this simple program, You will be encouraged to eat less, exercise more.   You don't want just to lose weight, rather You want to be fit and toned as well.

GoodLuck
