I fully agree with what was already written by other team members, choose just one thing to change and start as soon as you've made the choice - no matter if it's Monday or Friday! A happy New Year and goof luck!

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian
Welcome. Never been easy the food game. You need a photo of how you used to look, before and where you want to be and a challenge for yourself. Say I want to lose 5 lbs by 31/1/13. 1lb per week should be easy enough I don't know how much he want to lose.
You need to set yourself some stop questions like Do I really need this when you reach for the extra helping or a sweetie? Stopping and asking yourself this often works Not Always but it is a step in the right directio.
Join the 10 minute challenge to make yourself exercise just a little..
The possibilities are endless but the rest is up to you
It's all about making 1 choice at a time. Small changes over time has worked for me. I did not try to change everything at once. I changed 1 meal or snack at a time and started with walking 10 minutes a day. The small changes add up over time and soon you will see a big difference. Best wishes on your journey to a healthier you.

This losing weight is a "mind game" - how do I get my mind, my wanting, my cravings to stop giving me this attitude of not wanting to take better care of myself? I'm tired of how I look and feel about my body. I want to be healthy but I'm fighting this mind of mine that I will start doing better on Monday.....LOTS OF MONDAY'S HAVE BLOWN BY...
