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.
