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.

Injury and Diet
I hear you. I tore some ligaments in my thigh and I can't walk for more then 20-30 minutes without pain. I know I need exercise but I'm kinda scared. Getting old sucks!

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
Every 50 days...it is too easy to lose hope when you reach a plateau. Every 50 days is good and you know if you are sticking to your regime. I can tell by how I feel and how my clothes fit.

Get serious about food and exercise or forget about losing weight!
Great tips, it is true that its mostly in the diet! Muhc better to make lifestyle changes than to go on to quick weight loss diets.
