Savanik: good luck! Easiest thing to change is probably the two cola a day habit; that'll buy you a few pounds easily. Though you probably would want to replace those calories with something else, since 1600 is already really low.
Yeah, I'm trying to switch to black coffee in the morning. It's said it's an 'acquired taste', so I'll just have to keep at it. I've never been a big fan of coffee but I'm trying it with a bit of freshly ground cinnamon in it instead of sugar and it's ... drinkable, so far.
I've been pondering checking body fat mass with the statistics, but:
1. While the scale I have is capable of reading body fat mass electronically, it varies so wildly that it might as well be worthless. I suspect this is a hydration issue, from what I've read of the things, and I lack the time to correct for it.
2. I've got calipers, but I have no good instructions on how to actually use them on myself. The instructions in the package said one reading, on the side of the abdomen. This is less than ideal. But the instructions I've seen for multiple readings involve places I can't easily reach with both hands, like the back of my arm.
