Start by tracking everything you eat. Don't worry about cutting back; just focus on tracking. Measure and weigh everything. YOu can't change it if you don't know it's happening. ;) Once you do that for a few days, you can look back for patterns, things that trigger you, and places you can start cutting back. It's not all or nothing; when I got started with this, all I did (seriously) was replace half of my pasta with whole wheat. Nothing else.
Over time, I made changes; cutting back on portions, shifting snacking habits, replacing less-healthy options with more healthy options... don't try to change everything all at once. The goal is to build healthy habits for life... not crash-diet your way to thinness!
