My weight steadily went up with each major event in my life. Namely, job change from outdoor/active to indoor/tech, marriage, kid1, kid2.
Currently 5'10" and about 60lb overweight. Now we're preggers again so need to not add any more!
My problem is simply food volume and calories. I feel far too stuffed after far too many meals, but at this weight you really feel the hunger!
Spending hours and hours a week away from family doing jogs and gyms and stuff just doesn't work very well. So diet is key. And not eating too much for a desk job is very important!
I've enjoyed the Strava app for tracking walks, hikes, and bike rides.
Diet is key for sure! About 80-90% of weight lost is through diet. Just look at what @JaredBusch just posted, a 40 min outdoor walk burned 300 calories. That is about a bottle of soda. Just having a water for lunch, and sitting in a chair does the exact same amount of good for calories in calories out. That being said, drinking water, and going for the walk is where you get the big losses.
Also, this is why I play Pokemon Go, It gives me the same information give or take as a walking app, but I get to catch things, and it turns the whole process into a game to pass the time.
