Well, I see one problem right here- you are 5-10' and 250ish.. and you are estimating you eat 2000-2200 cal a day with exercise and not feeling hungry?? I am 5-5, 145ish and if I don't eat 2000-2200 cal a day with only moderate exercise (like yoga and walking the dog) I would still be on track for burning more then I was eating.. ... ..
I know it is a pain, but spend a few weeks REALLY tracking your calorie intake. Most fast food, and for sure Subway, has nutrition info online so you can use that. Really keep a record of how much sugar and milk you add to your coffee.. how many sodas etc.. and if you can, break down the recipes from home by ingredient and amount.. you would really be surprised at how many calories, natural, fresh, items can really contain- sometimes we mix
up fresh and healthy with low cal... just look at tofu.. high cal AND high fat.. but a great in small amounts to replace animal protein.
It may just be the exercise- that is a BIG deal and will definitely make you feel better, but make sure there isn't something else sabotaging your good intentions....

Usually My breakfast and lunch I eat out egg & cheese on English Muffin and a Ice coffee milk & reg sugar. A lot of the times :P I eat the same for lunch or subway veggie max and a soda or coffee. Dinner is prepared at home 90% fresh ingredients which is why I can't figure out where my extra calories come from I doubt I eat more then 2000-2200 calories a day... I rarely feel Hungry. I eat a light snack or fruits 2-3 hours after dinner which I have cut out since past week we agreed eating an hour before bed isn't a good idea.

On a side note my workouts have been making me feel better more energy when avg. 30 min jogge and 30 min strength training every other day.

HI.
Sounds like you just need to tweek your food and exercise. Do you ( or a family member )
prepare your meals or do you get a lot of prepared foods/take-out? There are alot of hidden calories in dishes that use a lot of ingredients (like most Indian) and they can really add up.
I would start by using the food and exercise trackers- you will quickly see where your calories are coming from and see if you are doing enough exercise.

Veggies are great, but watch the fruits. They are higher in natural sugars and so contain more calories. I know Indian cooking uses a lot of Basmati rice, but I would switch to brown rice. Try to stay away from white potatoes and white bread. Whole grains and sweet potatoes are better for you.

Success consists of getting up once oftener than you fall down. ANON.

Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

I use to be in very good shape without trying during high school, and most of middle school but last year of middle school and all of college I started putting on a lot of weigh. 5' 10" tall currently 253 lbs although every time I tell someone that they can't believe it cause I don't look it. I want to lose at least 40-50 pounds through out this summer. I am half Asian Indian and Half Japanese due to my mom I've never eaten any meat or fish. My current diet consists of eggs, vegetables, Indian food on the light side nothing too heavy with milk / cream or sugars and non-oily Japanese vegetable dishes. Truth fully I have no idea how I got to the weight I am just lack of exercise I guess.

Current workout Plan: Walk/Jogging on treadmill 3.5-4 mph for 30 - 60 mins after work 6-7pm
Weight training: inclined bench press, arm curls, chest butterfly and upper back

P.S: If anyone has any suggestion please I will take any advice and apply it at best as I can.
