One other misconception to think about. Fat doesnt make you fat. Carbs are the real culprit. Cut down on carbs and eat a high fat (preferably high unsaturated fats) high protein diet.

Power walking should help you lose a ton of fat and its easier on the joints than running.

Make sure you eat breakfast within 1 hour of waking aswell to kickstart your metabolism each day.

Good luck, and keep us updated with your progress, we're here to help if you need us

ps. If you get some scales i'd recommend spending a little extra and getting a set that can measure your body fat too. Some people get discouraged when they dont see their weight dropping, but what is actually happening is they are losing fat and gaining muscle. So while actually becoming healthier and fitter, they assume they have hit some sort of plateau due to the scales telling them they are the same weight, or even a higher weight.

If you cant afford to fork out on this sort of scale, use your common sense and visual recognition of your own body - After a while you will notice even the slightest change in your body composition

Try hitting the gym when you get further along on your diet, as the increased muscle mass will help your body burn more calories.
LOL, yeah!

Yeah, when I said fatty food I meant high carb food. Fatty food as in food for fatties.

Thanks, will keep in mind that you're here my friends.

It takes great determination to lose weight. The fat has just been adding up for months or years, as the case may be. However, don't kill yourself with a mean crash diet to get into a bikini, simply follow our expert-backed tips to fall into shape.
And it's a very common things burn fat happen due to unhygienic food & how to get started' is a major cause of concern. Whether it is sweating it out at the gym or going for long jogs, it is a tough call for most fitness novices. At such a juncture it is imperative to understand your body and its fitness requirement. And accordingly zero in on a work-out routine.

Cardio exercises are helpful to burn the calories of the human body and also burn the fat of the human body. Use supplements when you don't get the results by the use of the exercises.

Although walking and jogging is good to lose the weight but we should keep in mind that the use of the running helps us to lose the weight effectively and on the short term basis.

I don't know if OP still wants help but since this was bumped I guess I will try to give my advice. Working out is useless of you don't lose more calories then your daily caloric limit. Go google a calorie maintenance calculator and put in your age, height, and weight. It will give you a number of how many calories you would need to consume to stay the EXACT same. Now you have that number you need to be under that everyday, I would suggest about 300 from diet and whatever you lose from working out. Eat 5 portioned meals a day rather that 3 large meals, this will keep your metabolism running and essentially make it easier for you to burn fat. Don't ever let yourself go hungry! When you do, your body uses your muscles as fuel rather then the food, so eat when your hungry, even if it's just a handful of almonds.

As for workouts, google "HIIT" it's way too much to explain but basically it's going all out for a short period of time with little rests, it shocks your body and goes into fat burn mode and burns calories and fat for 24 straight hours.

Yes, I am still interested in losing weight. I have lost a lot of weight, but there's still more to go. I do however get compliments all the time, that I am looking a lot leaner and thinner. However, this last week I've done some bad choices concerning diet. Too bad, however, I think that I'd done the bad choices all the time instead of just a week if I didn't get on this weight loss freight train. So, considering that I am pretty well off in a way.

This week I'm back on the "good choices" diet. Lots of veggies and so on.

Thanks to all of you, I now have the tools to effectively lose all that overweight. I'll get back with a more detailed update later on.

Feels great to have shirts that fit or are a bit too big, instead of being too small. Sign of weight loss.
