Start out by setting a few small daily goals. I would encourage you to keep track of your food, at least for a while. It helps you see where you can make positive daily changes. Track your fitness, which will help you meet physical goals.

Welcome to the team! This is a great place to be; a good group of motivated people! I agree, one of the best tools is the nutrition tracker, the fitness tracker is awesome too. Find some challenges to do and post on the boards. Others face some of the same difficulties you do. Congrats on the progress you have made so far and great job on the no smoking!
