    Good luck to you! In that vein, here's what has worked for me (fyi, I am 53):
    Weight, Aug. 1, 2011: 112 kilos (245 pounds)
    Weight, March 1, 2013: 85 kilos (187 pounds).
    Lost 27 kilos, goal is to get to 75 kilos by June 1, 2013.

    You can do it.

    Diet: Stopped eating desserts, entirely. No more pie/ice cream/cake after dinner. Stopped buying sugar. Cut sugar out entirely--no more sugar in coffee, iced tea, etc. Stopped buying and drinking soda (amazing how many calories per day that eliminates). High-protein, low-fat breakfast (egg whites, hooray). Fruit for snacks. High-protein dinner. Lunch is carrot salad, or a tuna fish sandwich on wheat. Diet is hugely important. Tough at first, for the first six months. Then your habits/taste change, and you're in the groove. By the way, dark chocolate (get the 50% to 70% cocoa dark chocolate) is great for your heart and satisfies the sweet tooth. Eat a banana and an orange every day, to replace the magnesium and potassium you'll be sweating out in the workout. And be sure to take fish oil and a multivitamin, daily. If you're a coffee drinker, drink black coffee. If you drink hot tea, don't put sugar in it, put honey in it.

    Training: All training done in sauna suit. Can't jog anymore, due to knee injury, but luckily, can still use an exercise bicycle. I'll give you a week's typical training:

    3-5 pm, SAT/MON/WED/FRI
    Six sets of pushups on fists, all done within 30 minutes. (25/set)
    Six sets of crunches, all done within 20 minutes. (30/set)
    30 min on the heavy bag (3 min on, 1 off)
    40 min on the exercise bike

    3-5 pm, SUN/TUE/THUR
    Six sets of crunches, same as above.
    40 minutes of windmills (4-count, total of 750, this is a great fat-burner and excellent for cardio)
    1 hour on exercise bike (watch a movie or TV while doing this, time flies by)

    Swimming is great and very easy on the joints, so if you've got a pool near you, try to swim every day. Also, chopping wood: I've got a fire pit, so I chop a fair amount of wood (chopping wood is great for cardio and over-all fitness, be careful with it as your heart rate will go up quickly). FYI, chopping wood is old-school boxing training, also--see Jack Johnson's training, Dempsey, etc.

    It will hurt but nothing good comes easy. Stick to it and in less than two years, you will lose at least 25 kilos. Cheers.

    Mate, that is awesome. Great advice about the diet, too! I've not gotten back into exercise yet, but the diet is going very well! I'm continuing to lose weight due simply to better eating! I hope to get exercising when the busy period ends at work, but if exercise is something that one can lay off for a while, diet is something that I MUST learn to alter PERMANENTLY.

    Whoa! Last time I was here it was called Eastsideboxing! :lol: Well, my diet has improved over time and just this morning I weighed in at a lean, mean 110.4kgs! While I have made massive improvements in my eating, the training has been more or less non-existent. So tonight I'm going to sleep at the very boring hour of 9pm in order to wake up at 5 and hammer a workout at 6! Official weigh-in numbers to come!
