    Where to start?

    Just got out of prison, and gained a massive amount of weight while I was incarcerated. Currently at 290 Lbs but am having trouble figuring out how to start.

    The reason is because since my crime was committed in Texas I didn't have a address to parole out too which led me to a halfway house.

    I'm from Florida and am in the process of getting my parole transferred back there but it's gonna be a month or two until it happens. Most the food we are fed is terrible high carb high sugar foods that we were fed in Prison. And any food we are allowed to buy and bring in is all microwavable, quick meals, ramen noodle, macaroni etc.... AKA just terrible stuff. No fresh foods or produce allowed because of spoilage.

    How can I start a proper diet regiment and try healthy habits while being in such a bad environment for nutrition. We have no access to rec areas or a gym, which is just making me feel like I should just wait to move to Florida to start my weight loss.

    Any advice or tips?

    Advice?

    A) In the future don't do things that land you in prison

    B) Just start taking in fewer calories

    Good luck with your future
    If you don't get what you want you didn't want it bad enough

    Start the weight loss now. You're 290lbs. Waiting a few months until you go back to FLA is not a good option.

    Its really hard to give advice when I can't really picture your current living/nutrition situation. Are you allowed to shop at a grocery store? If so, even if you were subject to nothing but microwave food you could still get bags of microwavable vegetables and stuff like pre-cooked chicken, that would definitely help with avoiding high calorie processed stuff. Even microwave box meals like Lean Cuisine could be something you could try.

    As far as exercise is there an outdoor area where you can do calisthenics, or jump rope, or play basketball?

    I know not everyone who leaves prison does so in a state of obesity, so obviously some people have it figured out, so it is certainly possible to lose weight, and definitely don't wait until you move to another state to do it.

    But no matter how you spin it you need to find a way to take in less calories and move more.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.
