All right, I do need some advice and/or help.
I need to lose about 40 pounds or so. I can take a year or more to do it, but I need to start and seriously work at it.
I did it once before in the late 90's, but the weight slowly crept back on starting in 2001-2002 or so... most of it due to lots of comfort eating and lack of exercise. And I feel like I had more will power in the 90's. This particular decade of my life, I feel mostly worn out and not as resolute as I once was.
I need ideas for easy exercises that burn calories. I do not want to gain a lot of muscle mass (especially on top) although obviously some muscle gain will help me burn extra calories. [Since I have large bone structure, jogging is not the greatest exercise for me anymore -- it hurts my knees and feet easily.]
Also, any ideas for an easy way to structure a diet / get into a routine will be good.
Advice or links or whatever, please let me know. I'm looking around, but maybe one of you will have some good advice too.
Note: Any advice to have my head or limbs amputated, resulting in fast weight loss, will be promptly laughed at and then ignored.
