Food journal: Keep track of what you put in your mouth with a food journal and begin to eliminate foods with added sugars and fats. Cut back your food intake while increasing your exercise levels - shoot for 30min/day. Eat more fruit and vegetables. Drink water before meals. Don't skip meals, choose lean proteins and healthy carbs. Try choosemyplate.Gov or sparkpeople.Com or many phone apps for tracking.

Identify what matter: To motivate yourself to lose weight, identify why it is really important to you. Go beyond the usual because "i want to be healthy" or "i want to look good." ask yourself why do you want those things? How important are they to you? What are you willing to do to succeed? Once you have your answers, develop a process with the help of a professional that will hold you accountable and go for it!

Slow & Steady: To lose weight insure that calories burned exceed calories consumed. Drink at least 8 - 8 ounce glasses of water per day. Aim for at least 5 servings of vegetables and 4 servings of fruit per day. Use whole grain when possible. Avoid sodas, alcohol & junk carbohydrates. Get in a good mix of aerobic & weight lifting exercises.
