You lost 40 pounds in 3 months so as the other posters said, dont stop!!! It's time now to get into the next phase and reeducate yourself, are you eating first thing in the morning? Are you having healhty snacks between meals and a small dinner? CAn you increase intensity in the gym, circuit training or high reps. If you like bball i agree it is great cardio, are you doing it at least 5 days a week? Or can you? how about sleep getting enough? keep us posted and don't give up!
