Hi Kristi, welcome aboard. First step is to make out a food and fitness planner to use as a tool to log your intake and exercises.
Make small changes that you can live with. Make up your mind that you are worth the effort and REALIZE that this isn't a diet... this is a way of life. It took some time to gain that weight, and it'll sure take some time to lose it and keep it gone, so plan on forever , now.

Thank you Kim! I'm have such problem logging food. Water,weight and exercise. I have written the food down in a notebook. Today, I'm purchasing a pedometer. I find that to be motivating. Good luck, Kristi

I always hated the OLD way of logging, ie via journal entries. I'd either lie my pants off or forget what all I'd eaten as I was writing it and trying to find/calculate calories per item. It sucked so bad I only did it for a couple of days way back when dinosaurs still roamed the Earth, lol.

These new online planners do just about everything for you, which is WAY easier and less time consuming.
