Good luck!  Does myfitnesspal include diet?  I’ve noticed that’s what really gets me to lose serious weight.

@FutureMrs86: It is really important for weight loss and fat burning to alternate speeds and incline levels to keep your heart rate and body guessing.

I just shared this with a friend that also is returning to her treadmill and so far it is great, especially for those getting back into the groove.

0-1 min- Moderate Walk 3.5 speed (1 incline)

1-2 min- BriskWalk 4.0 speed (2.5 incline)

2-2:30 min- Jog/Spring 5.0-7.5 speed (2.5 incline)

2:30-3:30-Walk or Jog 3.5-6.0 speed (2.5 incline)

Repeat:

30 second Jog/Spring

1 minute Walk/Jog

Every time increasing the incline by .5 until you get up to 5.5 at 11:30.

12:30 Cool down with another brisk walk speed 4.0 (incline back down to 3).

14:00 Moderate Walk speed 3.5 (incline 2.0)

Finish at 15.
