100 lb. Club - why i'm weighing in but not setting a goal weight

i'm an usual body type i dont; look my weight. i posted a pic of me on here years ago wearing a pair of shorts at 230lb and didn't look it. so now i'm aiming to get into a set of 34-36 jeans. that is the goal.

however i will continue to weigh in weekly to make sure i am heading south but i'm taking the emphasis off the scales!

tomorrow i'll be heading to the gym for the first day of my monster sessions its my graduation in 1 month! i'm hoping to shift around 10lbs and as i'm unemployed i'm going to live in the gym i'm aiming for around 2-3hrs cardio a day. which is easy cos its about a 35min walk each way to the gym so thats an hour straight up.

I don`t think a slimming goal always needs to be weight. For me, it`s a dress size, too. I also measure and had a specific goal in respect to my belly (wanted to lose 10% of its circumference, which I achieved a few weeks ago).

I have three sons, all of which are on a diet at one time or another. My middle son is having a hard time getting started; he did join a gym today and did about 1/2 hour of exercise, but not too strenuous. I don't want him to have a heart attack! So, what food plan do you follow? Do you know of any weight loss forums for men? When he was younger he used to hit it like you are doing, but he's too old for that now.
