Try posting in the Diet & Nutrition and Fitness boards. :) There's a broader range of expertise available there.
The best place to start is simply to start tracking your food. Set up your tools here with your program (you can safely lose 2 lbs per week at your weight, although that will lessen as you get lighter.) Start exercising... just 10 minutes a day! Go for a walk. Get moving.
The most important tool you have is your nutrition tracker. Weight loss is about the foods you eat, not the exercise you do, beacuse no matter how much you exercise, you aim for the same goal each week. Exercising makes it easier though because you can eat more and still lose. :)
Track for a week, and weigh and measure everything. Don't eyeball it! That doesn't work. Get out the measuring cups. Get out the kitchen scale, and know what you're eating. After a week of doing that, you can look back and start deciding where to make changes.
Take baby steps. You'l lget there! Slow and steady is maintainable and can be life-changing.
