Try reading up about going on a cut.

The idea if you're already big(More fat then muscle like me) You'll want to cut, bulk, then cut again.

When you gain muscle, it burns fat. Each muscle acts as a small factory that consumes calories. The more muscles you have, the more calories you'll burn. But in turn, the more hungry you'll be because the Muscle is consuming calories.

So basically i just have to pay close attention to what I eat while I can hit on the gym, the track whenever I want and have no problems?

If you watch your diet and thats ALL you do (no exercise, etc) you will lose weight very slowly and gain no muscle. Your muscle will slowly deteriorate over time though, keep that in mind. If you diet, and exercise now and then, youll lose even more weight while toning your body. In my opinion, your diet is the main factor in weight loss/gain (muscle too)
