I had the same problem basically look in the past and see what you were eating and cross of the things that were high in sodium high in calorie and so forth. And subsitute with an healthy alternitive. I dont eat pasta any more cause i know its wicked high in carbs but subsitute it for whole grain rice
So glad to see you have made a choice for health! Poke around the site and try all it has to offer. Be sure to sign up for a few sparkteams!

Hello! I am currently in the same situation so I completely understand. I guess the best advice would be to just go for it. It won't be easy, but if you put the effort in exercise and diet wise you can do it! :)
First off warmest welcome to Spark People. It's going to be a hard journey but if you stay committed even when you fall off get right back on. Log log log, log everything as if you were writing a book about yourself. Food prep is a big key. Troll this site for recipes and plan meals for the week...Tupperware or brown bagging works. It's about 80-90% what you intake and the rest is activity. Try something new whether it be food or activity. In order for your body to change you have to change your mind. I can go on & on about what helped me loose 56lbs, you have to play around w/ what works for your body. Listen if you need an accountability partner let me know. I have a support page on Facebook (link below) if you ever need some daily inspiration, recipes or if you'd like to add some input on what helps you. Stay committed in this journey!!!
