It's easier when you get the bad food out of your house. Seriously. Don't buy it. You need to explain your goals for weight loss AND a healthier eating lifestyle to your husband.
If you husband still wants a treat - buy him his bag of cheetos - but know it is for him alone...you're less likely to take and eat someone else's food (stealing) - especially if it is just one bag.
Start filling your house with these kind of snacks: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutrition_art
Start tracking your food every day, every bite. When you see just how many calories a day you truly are consuming...that's pretty eye opening.
Want real motivation? Do what I do....stand naked in front of a floor length mirror. Really look at yourself. Turn around so you can see your butt, and your back. There is your motivation to start eating better.
That can be pretty motivating.
I also have jeans that I keep trying on each time I drop 3 pounds. Each time they get a little bit loser, and that's pretty motivating...but the naked trick works the best.!

The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.
