Isometric Training and Cardio Worked for Me, It Can for You

One morning I woke up and thought, "Man you let yourself go."  I decided I was not going to let my weight control me.  It was time to take control.  I asked myself two questions.  What do I want and how can I get there?  The answer to one was simple in the beginning... I needed to lose about 50 lbs.  I was overweight and out of shape.  But how?  With all the new technology, new exercises, and new programs out there what will help me get maximum results.  The answer came quick.  My body started responding to an isometric training style and timed cardio.  
First I would isolate 2-3 muscles groups that day.  Maybe Monday is back, bi's, and abs.  For weight loss I chose 6 exercises, did 3 sets of 15 reps per exercise.  Turned out to be about 300 reps in about 30 - 40 minutes.  Now it's cardio time.  I started walking for 30 minutes and gradually started jogging a little at a time.  The next thing I knew a 5k was no big deal.  8 months later I was down 60 lbs. I well surpassed my goal.
There you have it.  My weight loss journey that started with weights and cardio.  And for me it worked.  I have tried new techniques and styles but I always fall back to to my old friend who helped me in the beginning. Isometric training and cardio worked for me, it can for you?
