Lower back pain while walking in order to exercise

I am severely obese and am trying to loose weight so I have recently began walking however I notice that if I walk even about 1/2 a mile my back right above my behind hurts so bad I want to stop.. I work at a call center and sit down between 8-10 hours for my job and im a full time student. How can I help my back so it doesnt hurt so much so I can walk? I am 24 about 5ft 8.5 and weigh about 475.

Hi,min first of all I must congratulate on waking up to issue of obesity.When your body is not used to exercise that is bound to happen.You need to improve your posture while seating,try some back muscle strengthening exercise.You can take help from a physio for same.Also plan your diet,avoid drinking too much of colas,avoid junk food like french fries,burgers,pizza etc.Keep working as weight loss is a mission.bye and all the best.
