I have a regular brisk walking routine, but lately, I have felt like breaking out into a jog. I have lost a lot of weight, but I am still 100 lbs overweight, so I was wondering if it would be safe to do, or should I wait until I lose some more weight? How will I know when it is ok to do?

Try it and find out! Take it easy and see how it feels. You're almost certainly not going to injure yourself by jogging a block or two.

If you want to take up running, look up the Couch to 5K program. I finished it a couple of years ago at ~100 pounds overweight.

Your body will tell you pretty quickly if it's something you should not be doing (knee pain, e.g.) - I'd give it a try! Start with intervals - alternate walking with short intervals of jogging.

trying different ways in how you stride and use the handlebars will bring different results. It allows you to work at multiple paces. Ilove my gazelle and i can get my heartrate up fast with it.
