My way of doing it was pretty simple. Cut down on the crap foods and get moving. I work graveyards so my schedule get's messed up. I started working out on my meal break. 30 minutes on the Peleton and a quick shower then back to work. Couple of pieces of fruit, a granola bar and a yogurt was my snacks for the night. My time off, I walk at least 45 minutes a day, with part of the walk a nice incline that gets the heart pumping a bit. I stopped grazing on chips and crap food while awake and drank a lot more water. My beer consumption has not changed much, but with some pretty easy changes in my habits I have been able to lose about 20 pounds and still going. I was at about 230 last summer, now down to 205 and looking to get to 200 soon. My ultimate goal is to get to 180, but that is a bit away. For me, it was just changing some things in my life that made me better.
