comment Lost weight and getting fit - where to go from here?
I can probably continue it for another short period of time, but I have no idea how long would be required to lose the rest of my belly fat. So I guess what I'm asking is: If I continue with my strict diet and continue exercising, how long is it likely to take to shift the rest? If I need to do this for a year, then I'm not sure I'll succeed; a few months I can probably manage. I know I'm probably coming across as a non-committed wimp here, but I know that I won't be able to maintain a long-term diet that doesn't allow a little bit of fun here and there.

Apologies for not making myself clear - by "meeting my goal", I meant I have hit my original goal, when all I had planned to do was lose a bit of weight. Now that I've done that, I need to set some further goals, but maintaining the 100% no junk-food and no beer rules I used to hit my initial goal I'm likely to find unsustainable long-term. I think depriving myself of things like that is likely to cause me to fall completely off the wagon, where as if I can treat myself on a weekend, it might be something I can turn into a lifestyle.

This is definitely something I want to stick at, hence the reason for this post. You mention reading websites, can you point me in the right direction of a few?

I'm trying with the long-term goal, but having never had an interest in sport or fitness before in my life, I'm fearful that I'm likely to slip back into my old life. I'm currently focused on running a 10K run in 8 weeks' time, and beyond that I'm thinking of learning to swim properly and then training for a triathalon - hopefully this will do the trick in the short-term. I've just ordered the book you recommended, can you recommend any good websites?
