I'm currently 255lb even though I really don't look it (just a gut and a bit around the neck). I would like to be around 180. My problem is time, lower back pain from a car accident, hardly any endurance, and low testosterone. My health and my wife are key factors as to me wanting to lose weight. I want to look good for her and i have concern over my family has a history of heart problems.

I need advice for starting out and to keep me going. I tend to get discouraged easily.

Start exercise slowly. Walking. wall pushups. N change eating habits. Cut out soda replace with flavored water. Fill up on a cup of veggies before eating ur meals. Try to cut candy n fat. Change one thing at a time if it seems overwhelming.

Remember that even the smallest amount of progress is better than no progress at all! I got discouraged easily too but I keep reminding myself this everyday and it's kept me going :)

Thank you guys for responding! What exercises would you guys suggest for a new guy? (Remember I have lower back issues from a mva) I don't have a pool, otherwise I would consider starting there. Should I start with stretches mixed with yoga and work my way up to weights and light jogs?

Have you ever seen the video of a man who could barely walk and started doing yoga. If you haven't you should YouTube it. It's so inspirational and shows that anything is possible as long as you try. You could start with walking.

Walking and dieting are the best to start. You can try adding healthy substitutes to ur diet like eating eggwhites in a breakfast sandwich instead of the whole egg. A simple step like that can save you a few hundred calories a week and eggwhites are fat free :) green tea is good for increasing your metabolism. Foods with lots of fiber and protein fill you up without you having to eat much of them. And yogurtΒ  helps your digestive system and has protein.

Well you can start off with clean eating and like everyone said start off with casual workouts. It will be hard at first trust me I know but you can do this. πŸ‘πŸ’ͺ you can also do weight lifting it helps burn fat fast. Things will get better so don't give up and think positive don't bring yourself down. I believe in you πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ😊
