In brief: That's terrific
The best way to lose weight is to eat a diet that is satisfying but lower in calories than what you're eating now.
So unless you already know what to eat, find information about healthy foods and then make a plan to change your diet gradually so it lasts a lifetime. Check out http://www.Choosemyplate.Gov/weight-management-calories/weight-management.Html or http://www.Hsph for more info.
