Just keep doing what you're doing for now. 15 pounds in 3 weeks is insane. Although I'd highly suggest to start lifting at some point when you get the chance.

I'm getting a bar and bench set with 100lbs, will buy more weights once I can. What workouts in general are considered good? I was thinking to start with full body work outs such as bar bell presses/cario/day off - repeat, then move on after 2 weeks or so to arms and cardio/ legs and gut/ day off.

I'd start with your basic starting strength program 3 days a week, then do extra cardio on your off days.

Fair enough. I expect my 100lb weight set to come in within a week. I don't think I can bench more than 120 so I suppose that amount is perfect. Debating buying 2 more 25s just in case.

Update - Woke up and weighed in at 190.

I was just about exactly like you. 5 foot 8, 215 pounds, but pretty strong underneath.

I'm going to first answer the question you didn't directly ask, but I learned the hard way from experience and don't want you to make the same mistake. If you are genuinly strong fat, make sure to keep on lifting while losing weight- or your body views the excess muscle there as not nescesary and burns about as much of that as fat. Bit brosciency there, but that's exactly what happend to me my first 30 pounds down and countless others. Keep lifting on a diet, it's crucial.

For foods, its more important how much you eat. If you're exercising more and eating cleaner, then the reason you're still gaining weight is simply because you are eating too much. Download a calorie counting app for your phone or computer and use it to get a baseline of where you are. Then target 500 cals under your maitenance level. You don't need to go all OCD with it (as I have in the past and do on a cut for a weight class) but you have to know where you are now with your eating habits and what the habits to lose the weight are.

As for what to eat, that's all about making the calories you do consume be as beneficial as possible since you have less to work with. Chicken, lean beef, and vegetables should be staples. Complex carbs (whatch the servings sizes) like brown rice, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta/bread (not the best but fine) beans, potatoes, ect. should be next. A meal of 8-10 oz meat, a good sized serving of vegtable, and a good carb source can be ~500 cals and extremely filling. Don't forget the healthy fat sources, eggs, nuts, olive oil, moderate animal fat, avocados, ect. or you'll be hungry all the time and not realize why. Counting cals and macros is important here. Aim for .8g protein per pound bodyweight and use the remaining cals for carbs or fat, whatever ratio works best for you. I like fruit as a quick snack especially before the gym but it never holds me long unless paired with a protein source like greek yogurt or cottage cheese.

Best exercise for burning bodyfat is lifting weights. Honestly. And gym memeberships can be 20 bucks a month. You can find that. Other than that, its simply moving more in whatever way you can consistenctly do it. Sounds like you enjoy running. Stick with it. Throw together some obtainable goals of increasing the distance and/or pace.

And last bit of advice is that consistency is the key. The number of people who give up after a month or less is immeasureable. Those that stick with it 6+ months make it a lifestyle change and get the results they want. It's all up to you

Haha this post sounds wrong. Sorry I have been drinking crown. I ran out of gas once in hondo and couldn't make it to uvalde, phone was dead too. I ended up getting on mcdonalds wifi and hopping on to my world of warcrafts vent server, got my GM to call my Dad, and got some money to continue on my way. Seems like an alright place.
