I am 29, 5'9", 259lbs, and I haven't had much time to work out but I spend at least 5 days a week working at our feed store and greenhouse SO it involves a lot of lifting and walking if that counts. Please and thank you :)

BMR: 1969

Maintenance ( I will use the 3-5 day formula since you have an active job): 1969*1.55=3051

To lose 1 lb per week: 3051-500=2551

Your ideal calorie range is 1969-2551 calories per day to lose 1 lb per week.
