I recently got a job working for the railroad, and I was already starting to gain weight, but since the 2 months I've had the job I've really packed it on. I've always had a desire to get in shape, but now that I realize I need to its a must. I've been eating a lot of fast food and gas station items, because its convenient and I can't be picky when there's not very many choices. I was just wondering if there's any tips I can get on how to lose about 20 or 30 pounds before I go home in October. I'm honestly willing to do whatever it takes. I want my wife to be impressed, and plus it'll make me feel much better about myself. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Also, keep in mind I work a minimum of 12 hours a day. J wouldn't mind doing about 30-45 minutes of working each day, if time allows it. I can do more if I need to. Like I said, I'm willing to do whatever I have to. It just has to be reasonable and fit into my very busy schedule.

First thing i can say. You got to be picky when there is not so much choice! If you are forced to eat fastfood or at an gasstation those are the places its so easy to go overboard and just pick whats cheapest and most convenient. So that is the place to be picky and really look critical at what you are eating!
