First and foremost: Don't try to change your entire daily routine at once! Start by making small changes. I didn't start out eating broccoli for snacks, or exercising regularly. I started out by eating the same things I always have, but tracking them, and measuring out proper portions.
Make small changes over time, and don't try to do it all for once. You have the rest of your life to do this... you don't have to do it tomorrow!
This isn't a journey of perfection, either. It's all about doing the best you can, when you can, and when you mess up, picking yourself up, dusting yourself off, and moving forward. And you WILL mess up... you have to prepare for that, and accept it.
You can do this. :) Look inside yourself, because ultimately, that's where your motivation comes from. No one else can motivate you! Only you can do that. Decide why you want to be healthy, and really make it a good reason. Not "I want to not be fat", but concrete, reachable goals like "I want to run a 5k" or "I want to climb stairs without getting winded."
And as for if you're doing it right... well, what are you doing? ;)
