    I'm 40 so I don't totally understand your position however wouldn't you just eat at a deficit if you have more weight to lose? You don't necessarily need to exercise in large amounts to lose weight is what I understand from tracking cals and all of the info on forum here.

    The problem is that if you do not exercise and you consistently restrict calories, the usual thing that happens is that your metabolism slows down and it gets harder and harder. And if you are too consistent and frequent in your eating, even if the feedings are small, you are likely to become metabolically inflexible (your body does not so easily switch back and forth between burning glucose and burning fat and weight loss is more difficult.)
