I'm going to the gym, following a workout program and I've quit 'bad foods' ( soft drinks, candies, cookies, french fries and such).
It works, but it takes its time.
Persistence is the key.

I do everything at home and on the cheap. Swing by my thread in the journal section.

Home workouts can be the same as workouts at the gym, just be creative. Use your body weight as resistance.

LOTS of pushups. Decline pushups by having feet on a chair or something, and reverse that by having your hands elevated.

Situps, Squats, dips ( with a STRONG chair)

Also, if you can afford the fifty bucks or whatever it costs, get a pullup bar and just PULL!!

Theres a really nice book on home workouts called 'Convict Training' from Paul Wade. A friend of mine followed the book and lost 10kg (22 lbs).

Man, you've lost a ton of weight! I suggest pullups, chinups, dips, pushups, and hanging leg raises, you can even do body weight rows when you get stronger and can balance yourself while hanging.

I suggest this:
http://www.amazon.com/ProSource-Heavy-D ... n+gym+door

I own it and it's my most versatile piece of equipment, built like a tank too. Use a chair and forced negatives to get you going for your first pullups/chinups. Then load a backpack with rocks and/or sand in plastic sandwich baggies to add resistance. You can also use it for beginner dips by putting it on the floor upside down. Same goes for pushups to keep your wrists from getting jacked up. And as stated before, start with just body weight and add resistance if you want.

Jogging and/or walking and/or bicycling are musts for cardio.

As for eating at restaurants, I shoot for whole grains or salads and if you ask nicely they'll usually hold fats and add protein like beans and sometimes tofu.

I got my start with no equipment at all too, good luck!

If you are going to do bodyweight stuff, I recommend high volume. If you struggle with high volume of reps pet set, then do low reps per set, but then do a high volume of sets. So for instance if your absolute max for press ups is say 15, then do sets of 10, and do as many as you can. That way you could easily do 100. Where as if you keep pushing to your limit, then you will struggle in each subsequent set.

Man, ninjas are so bad ass. They could be flipping pancakes and still look gnarly.
