I've lost almost 50 pounds doing 30 minutes of cardio, 5 days a week, 20 minutes of weight training at least 2 times a week.. So start with your routine, it sounds good, but add weight training. Lean muscles that are acheived through weight training more readily burn fat. The main goal to have is to watch your food intake, since 80% of weight loss is what you eat. So start with small changes in your diet, allow yourself a little breathing room once a week, but no more than a few hundred calories extra. The reason I say that is because if you refrain from all "bad" food, it is often too difficult for a lot of people. It usually ends up being too hard. What happened with me in the past is I've given up, ate horrible for a day or so, then because I enjoyed it so much, I just kept on eating it becase I just couldn't give it up completely like I thought I should do. So now? I choose not to be so hard on myself so that I don't just give in like before. For example, if I've had a really great week keeping in or very close to my calorie range, I give myself that ice cream, or the french fries, etc. Just for the DAY, or for ONE MEAL not as a usual daily habit. I hope that helps!
