training my way to less of me...

I've lost 40 pounds in 99 days. Simply by drinking only water throughout the day (I vaguely remember what beer tastes like) and riding 2000 miles in the same time frame. The other thing I've tried to do is make sure I burn as many or more calories every day as I'm taking in.

The hard part starts today, my 45th B day by the way, I want to lose 15 pounds by the end of the year. I expect this 15 will not be nearly as easy as the first 40. I'm 5'9 and currently weigh in at 180.

Should I stick with the same routine? I'm not really interested in the drastic results I've had over the last 40 pounds. My goal is 5 pounds a month for the rest of the year. Once I'm at 165 I'll just ride and hopefully have a habit of eating sensibly. I plan to continue riding either outside or on my trainer throughout the winter as well as running 1 or 2 days a week for about an hour each day.

I'm also supplementing with Whey a couple times a day.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
