Diet to get to the size you want and train to get to the shape you want. If you don't want to add the fat then watch how much you eat. If you can't go for a run, at least you can control how much food goes in your mouth.
Yes, this is def. what I will need to do until I can get back to exercise. A little boring and requires some self control (oh no!).
A little catch up on a few things discussed over last few days...
thebrownman - I lost a decent chuck of weight early last year (about 20kgs). Originally suffered through, then got a few decent things that could be altered altered, then sold or donated a lot of clothes and basically started again, which in a way was good as I could use the lessons learnt from making the mistakes over the years (your point about making mistakes and learning what works for you is so true). Slowly rebuilding a classic and versatile wardrobe, and once I got to a weight I was happy with I got myself as P Johnson number (MTM is good as apart from anything else having spent that much on a piece of clothing you are determined to stay in shape to wear it).
My advice for now, if you are still changing shape, is to get one suit altered as best as can be and just accept that it can will only serve you for a while and will prob. not be able to be sold on (thinking for your job and lifestyle you prob only need one good suit). Then once you are happy go for the P Johnson (or other MTM) number you really want. In the meantime if you need a little menswear purchase brighten up your week, shoes, pocket square, ties (though you prob have little use for them), socks or watches are the way to go. Good luck with it.
Mr Sy - in terms of sportscoats, I have said it before and I will say it again, if you can figure out your size, Boglioli is a good choice (if you do a search on this forum or my posts you should find place to get them within your price range and hear more on my views, I have 3 and am very happy with them). In the same vein re LBM 1911, Lardini and Piombo, but you may have to take the risk with sizing (though I believe places like Yoox and farfetch have good (and poss. free) returns policies).
PoP and fxh - great to read your views and discussions on monks, in particular black ones with double straps. I am still making up my mind and value your opinions. Realistically though most people will care less so I (obviously) need to please myself (and am having a bit of a relove of my black shoes at the moment) and hope that I do not end up in an important meeting with PoP/fhxh type chap judging me(!) if I get black double monk shoes. Really enjoy your in depth analysis. Am meeting Mr Nice Guy Nelson next week to look at a couple of his monks and get a better idea of what I want.
And to whoever asked where I box, I go to a place in Prahran, though only training, not fighting (however might consider that in the new year).

Anyone looking for something dapper to wear to work or a new suit for the races - I've dropped the price on a couple of Herringbone items.
1. Osaka cut fully canvassed navy stripe suit, size 42R (waist 36, trousers come unhemmed) - BNWT
$575, please PM me with any questions. Retail price was $1395.
Also, Herringbone "Finlay" Charcoal suit jacket (40R) - $300 (Brand New With Tags), Trousers can be bought separately at Herringbone stores.
Guys, if anyone is interested - dropping prices again on the above (SPOILER). These items no longer fit me and are now at borderline ridiculous prices. Both are NEW with tags. If they're your size - I'd be considering either.
