Ok - the best thing to do is start slow, and be consistent - building new goals on top of the established ones.
So you stopped drinking soda (congrats!!) but now what?
Try tracking your food for 3 days. Just to get and handle on your current diet, and to get used to tracking. That's your goal.
Then, bring down your calorie intake by 200 every 2 days. Say your range is 1200-1550 but you are eating 2000. Do 1800 for 2 days, then 1600 for 2 days, then 1400 for 2 days, then average out at 1220-1400 everyday. That's your goal.
As you are doing that...start increasing water. Each time you bring your intake down, add 2 glasses of water, until you hit 8 per day That's your goal.
Then you start exercising. Do 10 mins a day for 3 days a week. That's your new goal.
Then 15 mins a day for 3 days a week. That's your new goal.
Then 20 mins a day for 3 days a week. That's your new goal.
See what I mean?
Write down a series of small goals, and when you accomplish one, you continue with that new behaviour, and add a new goal.

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