Why not do the Body for Life exercise program along with the eating. IMO, it's way too much food if you are eating by the book, for the level of exercise that you are doing.
I would pick up some weights and concentrate on exercises that use dumbbells because that will force both sides of your body to work equally hard. If you use machines, the stronger side will do most of the work. Don't use different weights for the stronger and weaker sides....The weak side will catch up fairly quickly if you work correctly!
If you really have uneven fat lumps, maybe you should see a doctor and find out what they really are. When I first started trying to lose weight, I had a lump of fat over my left hip bone. 60 pounds gone, and it was still there. I kept trying to lose weight until it went away. It turned out to be an encapsulated fat cyst that had to be surgically removed. Encapsulated fat doesn't shrink or go away when you diet- mine was actually larger when I weighed 125 pounds than when I weighed in the 180's.
You are almost exactly the age and weight where I started. I think you really need to kick the exercise up a big notch and keep it there if you want to keep the weight off for the last time. If you are new to an integrated weight-cardio-nutrition program, Body for Life
, or Pamela Peeke's Body for Life for Women
is a great place to start.
