Our expert says:
ANY amount of activity - however slow or fast - burns calories and is better than just lounging in front of the television! Do not worry, you are NOT wasting your time and if you enjoy the slow walks in front of the television than by all means continue as this will contribute to "flab" reduction!
Calories are usual burned "per distance" covered - so, regardless of whether or not you cover 5 km in one hour or 20 minutes the amount of calories expended will be the same.
This is not a silly question - keep up the good work and enjoy it! ...Your bf is probably just jealous :-)...
Keep On Walking!
