Light bicycling while fasted burns a ton of fat when you're heavy. If you're watching an hour or two of TV a day get a stationary bike and cycle them pounds off.
I had issues when trying to drop below 170 in high school. I have had personal trainers tell me that I am naturally muscular, which can effect being light obviously. I’m just naturally a heftier person (although let’s be frank there’s only so far you can take that excuse).Stu, one of the things I like about you is how candid you are about your issues and life. You are not afraid to admit you are overweight and trying to lose, not afraid to admit you were bullied in high school and college, and other things. Your honesty and self-awareness are awesome.
As far as the weight issue, sounds like your diet is pretty good, your walking is a good thing, and you have lost at least 10 pounds, apparently. Good job. Given your height and weight, I think you may just be genetically programmed to be a heavier guy, and will never be lean (like 5-8 and 160 lbs). If you have the time and money, a gym membership is great. So much equipment to choose from, and you can meet some nice peeps. At a gym you can have a simple but effective workout just by using the elliptical for your cardio and to burn a few calories, then pump some iron. I am fine just with chest presses, upright rowing, and pulldowns. All are machines with adjustable weight settings. Start slow, gradually ramp up (time on elliptical, and weights). Bet you'll end up looking and feeling good. And keep carbs to a minimum in diet.
