Welcome to SparkPeople. This is a really great site. Find a Spark Team under Community that has the same goals / interests / hobbies you like. This will help keep you motivated on those days or weeks when everything seems to be going wrong. We have been there and know what it feels like.
Small steps will help you in reaching your long term goal. Don't try to change everything at one time or you may feel overwhelmed. For instance, if you drink a lot of sodas, try replacing one with a glass of water each time. After a while, you won't miss the sodas.
"Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do." -Johann Wolfgang van Goethe
