First welcome to Sparkpeople. We are all here to get healthy. There are all kinds of ways out there to do that. Right now I suggest you read some articles on nutrition and weight loss. There is a lot of information on this sight, take advantage of it. Look at nutritional videos, read peoples blogs it will give you a stronger base to make your decisions from. We are all learning here, we make mistakes and learn from them. So take your time look around then make small goal and go for it. We are here for you. Pat
I'm no expert, but...
Do not make any food off limits. You will set yourself up for a binge. Eat all kinds of foods and learn what the calorie/fat and other value is. That way you can make some informed decisions about what you will eat.
Look, change one thing this week. Then next week change one more thing. Then cruise on those 2 changes for the next 30 days and see how you do. It is hard work, so consider this the getting ready stage. Then next month you will be ready to get really ready and choose 2 more things to change.
With 4 changes going you are getting ready to get started. Read about calorie content, learn nutrition values and look at food as a tool to help build a better you.
Stay focused and stay on SparkPeople!

I'm only light years away from my goal, or so it seems. After all we're not mapping the secrets of the universe.
No, don't give up all carbs. They are essential for your body's metabolism. Just cut down on breads, and pasta, and SWEETS. Eat whole grain breads, rice, and pasta. In a nut shell, white carbs especially, and sugars big time, make you feel hungry soon after eating them. Blood sugars go up quickly satisfying us but then down quickly, making us feel hungry again. You MUST keep track of how many calories you eat per day by tracking them. The SP calorie tracker is great for this. When I started tracking what I was eating, I was amazed at the calories I was eating and by the "small things" that were packed with calories. I myself have to keep to 1,200 calories per day or I won't lose weight. A cup of coffee or two with milk and sugar, over my 1,200 cal. limit for instance, will blow my weight loss.
I obviously eat too many calories or I'm eating all the wrong foods. I try to eat in moderation but I'm always snacking even when I'm not hungry; especially peanut butter( I think I'm addicted to it)
Should I give up all carbs and fried foods completely?
