Tbh, If you really had 175 lbs of lean mass at 5'9 you'd be huge. You're probably a lot higher bf than you think. Construct a proper diet and training routine from the stickies and focus on consistent weight loss till you're happy with how you look in the mirror.

Just eat healthy and do lots of walking. And you will get there sooner or later, with no suffering.

I find it funny how a double post on this forum ends up giving completely different responses.

check my pictures

at 220 i was probably 38-40% BF

start heavy lifting now, and cut at around 2100-2300 cals while eating close to 150g protein, youll lose 2lbs a week guaranteed

just realize the sooner you start, the sooner youll start transforming. Heres a link to my cutting guide, I think it should help you just fine
