I have changed from what was before a pure diet to a more overall balanced routine. I do some level of workout 5 days a week (minimum 3 runs ~ 4-5k). I have added push ups and sit-ups for muscle toning. Now I bounce around 169 - 171 lbs consistently (15 lbs below my weigh-in on Mar 5 2014, 30 lbs below what I was in April 2011).

I have 2 goals.

1) to get off blood pressure meds permanently (dosage is already cut in half where I was in 2012)

2) Tough Mudder August 16 (www.toughmudder.com)

Definitely keep up with pushups and sit ups and I would also suggest adding pullups/chinups into your routine for overall toning as well as tough mudder training. (Either invest in one for your door frame or use one at the gym.) It deals with a ton of body weight challenges.

Exercise alone is not the answer. Eat healthy, lose weight, and exercise, it all works together. The exercise is good for firming you muscles, strengthening your bones, and your overall health.
