With a plan like that, you are sure to succeed! I am inspired to do something similar and make it more "Offical." When I just 'whisper' my plans to myself, I have a tendency to not follow through. But with a plan such as yours, (especially if I post it somewhere prominent, like on my bathroom mirror), I would have a very visible measure of accountability.
Good luck on your future success!!!

In the next few days, I will begin a new chapter in my career. This comes after a sad and emotional closure to the previous chapter, which was filled with achievement and success – professionally speaking, but also filled with stress, emotional imbalance and unhealthy habits. I have spent the past few weeks at home, taking stock of all of my fortune (no, I don't mean money), my mistakes and my expectations. I somehow landed on the SP website and got really excited. I had a few glasses of water, weighed myself (105 kg), bought a bamboo steamer and told my wife and daughters (ages 46, 10 & 7) that I want their collective permission to make some changes in our family behavior. It was when I brought home the Wii Fit Plus that we all really got excited…
I have goals: I want to feel good again. I want to have energy. I want to enjoy not just eating, but tasting too. I want to cook food, not just heat it up. I want to run. I want to sweat away 25 kilos of unnecessary body mass at the rate of 1 kilo per week. I want to distance myself from the chances of diabetes and heart attack. I want to enjoy my daughters with them, not at them (think about how that was phrased!). I want to live long enough to do the same with my grandchildren. I want to be responsible for my health.
I have methods: I will consume between 1,510 and 1,860 calories per day. I will monitor, manage and maintain planned levels of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. I will alternate cardiovascular activity with strength training. I will take comfort and seek motivation in myself, my family and my friends. You will become my friends and you will help me too.
