I think the thing I need to do the most is excercise. What can i do in the comfort of my own home ?

I am not wanting a six pack or anything like that just to loose weight.

If you are the type of person that needs guidelines and rules, then I suggest the South Beach diet

It is extremly healthy, and its more of a way of eating/lifestyle than a diet

And if you do it right, it doesn't feel like a diet at all!

At home try Sit-up, crunches, fluter kicks, and walking/running.

If you are looking for a plan check out Weight watchers, it is not just for women. I lost 6lbs a week for the first three weeks and then a total of 35lbs over 4 months and kept it off. Men actually tend to do better as far as loosing weight quickly.

There web sight is www.weight watchers.com

If you like it I strongly suggest finding a location and going to the meeting at least to get going for the first several months. Yeah it is like $10/week, but how much have we all spent on fad diets that we do not stick to. Weight watchers is healthy and very doable. The biggest thing is you can eat normal food, no need to buy special powders drinks etc.

Good luck,

Exercise, eat healthier, consume more water, and don't drink. That's the basics. Exercise everyday either through walking swiftly, jogging, running, stairstepping etc for about 20 to 30 minutes. Eat veg's, fruits, limit meat quantities, nothing fried. Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water per day. And try to eliminate alcohol.

Yeah, water is a good tip. 6-8 glasses is a good start, but try to drink half your weight in onces of water a day. For some of us that is a lot of water, but it really helps.

I actually drink my weight in ounces. Not to lose weight, but just because it's the only thing I crave. It helps with the oils that you body produces.

eat less calories. do lots of cardio. You can do situps till the cows come home and get really toned stomach muscles that are still covered in fat if you don't eat less and do lots of cardio!

Eat better (not necessarily less), drink lots of water (the average person's thirt-response is so weak that it is usually mistaken for hunger), and excercise more.

Look at your diet...chances are you eat far more fat and meat (and sugars) than you need and far less in the way of vegetables.

You should be drinking those suggested ten 8oz glasses of water daily.

Exercise does not nescessatily denote going to a gym (although it is certainly helpful)....you would be surprised at what a daily brisk walk of 1 hr can accomplish.
