i am trying to loose about 25 pounds (maybe more we’ll see once i get to a healty BMI) i am 5’5”ish 169.2 26 years old. currently my workout routine is :

5 days a week – (working toward 6)

treadmill 15.0 incline 2.8-3.5 mph for 30 to 45 min, the calorie count on the treadmill says i burn about 808 cals an hour at 3.5 (today i burned 570 for 45 min going between 2.8-3.5)

3-4 days a week i do nautilus training, focusing mainly on my legs and mid section for about 20 min at the max weight i can handle 50ish reps each machine

i also was walking my dog about 3-4 miles a day at about 2 miles an hour (she’s a small dog so i cant exactly run with her) but this is on hold while she recovers from surgery, i will still try to walk but i doubt it will be this much.

any suggestions, does this sound like a good routine?

i’ve also heard that muscle burns fat, but building muscle under fat just makes the fat stick out more, so when i do nautilus training weights on my midsection am i building muscle that will help me burn more fat, or should i just wait to work my muscles in that section until i am no longer toting a spare tire?

eta- i also eat about 1500-1700 calories a day and am sedimentary with the exception of my workouts
