In addition to what's already been suggested-- maybe you're trying to change too many things, all at the same time. It's really more beneficial in the long run, to pick maybe 3 small changes at a time and get used to doing those things, before picking a couple more things to change. So you could just focus on say, drink more water, get 5 servings of fruit/ vegetables a day, and get at least 10 minutes of exercise. Then after you've been successful with those for a while, add in something like a little more exercise or eating whole grain bread or skipping the junky snack foods.
This is a lifestyle change and not just a *diet* to lose the weight. Over the years, I did a lot of *diets* and could lose the weight, but eventually I'd go back to my old ways, and gain all the weight (plus usually more) back. Now I'm focused more on making changes that I know I can stick to for the rest of my life. Doesn't mean I'm perfect, or that I never eat pizza or cheeseburgers or ice cream or potato chips. But I started with, no junky snack food every...single...day, drink more water, and get 10 minutes of exercise. Everything else, I've just built onto that a little at a time.
