Hi if removeing weight and keeping it off is your goal then you have to make a life style change there is no going back to old ways . so make a plan you can live with for life that includes good for you foods ... the usual lean meat fruits vegies fat free dairy
whole grains nuts in moderation .. include an occasional favorite it helps with the feeling of being deprived .. make an effort to eat proper portions ... It is helpful to weigh and measure all the meats a fruits nuts etc ,,
I am useing fitday.com to log foods and exercise I also like that I can monitor the nutrition too .
include some exercise whatever you will do thats the best exercise something you can and will do...
