Hi Deepa,
First of all I do hope that you are taking this tablet after a prescription from a licensed doctor. Glucomet/glycomet that is metformin is helpful for weightloss but only to a very minimal extent and is not approved for use in weightloss. Also SR meaning sustained release tablets need to be taken once or maximum twice daily. Do discuss regarding this with your doctor. Take care and regards.

Hi Deepa
Glucomet is not famous in reducing weight, unless u r taking it for another health problem.
Also walking for 1 hour daily, will make u burn around 300 KCal/day in average regarding the speed & way of walking
