I haven't lost any weight (or needed to) but my body composition has changed from 25% body fat to 17% over the past six months.

Simple boring stuff - diet and exercise. A salad a day, less sugar, less dairy, less bread. Running with the dog instead of walking her. Daily push-ups, squats, abdominals, stretching. Not necessarily a full workout but a few minutes here and there on work breaks. Stuff like that. The key for me is consistency. It works for me and I feel good; more energetic.

If you don't mind me asking, what breed of dog do you own?

I don't mind at all.  :)
She's some kind of labrador mix. (She's a rescue league dog.) Black with a few white markings, about 65 lbs.

Its amazing how simple it can actually be. You're doing it right. Forget all of the fads and just stick with the basics.

Things have slowed down but I'm now down 88.6 lbs. 100 is so close I can taste it.

Keep up the good work man. I was 5' 10" 230 in high school and dropped down to 155 in college, but everybody said I was too thin. Now I'm a buff 175 and loving it.

That is where I want to be. I was 210 6'1 and now I'm at 170 now but full of flabby on the belly. My goal is to reach that low of a weight and gain about 15 pounds of muscle.
With these choices, I felt that the American black man only needed to choose which one to get eaten by; the liberal fox or the conservative wolf because both of them will eat him.
