Push-up's, Planks, and the Pursuit of happiness.

On this journey I have managed to cross the 60 lbs lost level. All of this was done by walking and cutting my food intake.
A great thing no doubt, but it was(is) time to take this to a new level. The weight has been dropping but now it is time to firm up.
For the last 2 weeks I have been doing 100 push-up's a day and WOW...I am seeing results already.....starting to see a build in the mirror I haven't seen in a good while. This week I will push the number to 150 push-ups a day.....75 in the morning, 75 in the evening. Right now I am content with reps of 25, but will increase that as well.
I also have added planks to the mix to firm up the core.....and right now I can feel those. I'll just do those 3 days a week until the muscles start to get accustomed to the stress of the planks.
When I started this journey I figured 195 was a good goal. Now I am not so sure. I don't think I am going to put a basement on all of this. I figure it will stop when it stops.....be it 195 or 175.
It's like a metamorphosis...from caterpillar to beautiful butterfly....well....probably more like some kind of moth, but you get the point.
