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.
