I would like some help. I will read through this, and I'm sure you will have answered 70% of what i need to know by then, if not more.
I weigh 210, and I'm 5'9.
I ran for about a week and a half, and then stopped. I lost 5 lbs, without doing weight training. I was walking for 5 minutes, stretching my calf's, before jogging a mile, two days, and one rest.. Some days, I would throw 30-45 min of some walking also. Where I'm lacking is my nutrition. I live at home, so it's hard to eat what i want.
My goal is to make my body look as sexy as heaven. Lean, Not to muscular, but muscular. You know.
By live at home I'm assuming you mean with your parents? If what you have available to you is poor quality food (because let's face it, most Americans eat like shit and it's pretty normal) make a plea to your parent's about losing weight and needing some healthier things to eat. Start making your own meals instead of just relying on whatever is getting made, that way you will be in control of your diet. Stick to the basics: vegetables, fruits, grains, rice, dairy, nuts. Stay away from processed foods if possible; NO SOFT DRINKS, NO FAST FOOD. Unless you hate it, start drinking tea. It will give you something super healthy and hydrating to drink, making you fuller and less susceptible towards turning to the sugary alternatives (avoid drinking on an empty stomach, you will get stomach rot). You can still indulge in crap food every once in a while, but that does mean every once in a while
. It should be an irregular treat, not a normality.
When I lost weight way back when I did these things, and through my influence I actually got my parent's to start eating/buying healthier things.
The most important part about losing weight too and keeping it off, is that your lifestyle and diet changes must also be forever - you can't go back to eating crap and not exercising after losing weight. You don't really have to keep an exercise routine - but you have to be active and eating healthy. After losing weight a lot of people will go right back to their old bad habits, and gain it all back.
Do you enjoy running? It's a good way to accomplish your goal, but for me at least, I hate running and would lose interest really quickly. Anything cardio-intensive will give you the type of body you want, I would suggest doing a little upper-body workout as well. Just buy a basic weight set and do a little bit everyday, no need to go crazy if you're not looking for a super-muscular body. You can always get a gym membership, but most people never end up using it...
