Good day all! In order to be successful with weight loss and a lifetime of "feeling good" about how we look and feel, it is imperative to take one day at a time. Forget about how many total pounds you have to lose, you can make each day move you forward to your peace of mind in this matter.
If you can eat healthily one day (and walk or exercise as you can), then again the next day... you will be surprised at the outcome. Drinking at least eight glasses of water each day helps to curb the appetite and flush away the toxins we all have.
For me, curbing the amount of breads and fats (cheese, butter, sour cream, oils, etc) I was eating each day really helped. I made my smallest meal my dinner and had a snack of milk (which I love), or a small portion of ice cream around 8-9pm. Once I started losing weight, the motivation to continue became strong!
For me, weighing myself each day was a ritual... each morning before I ate or drank anything. I would then record what I weighed. I made eight little boxes on my notebook for each day and crossed one off each time I drank a glass of water. I logged everything I ate and tried to calculate how many calories I ate each day. I had a max each day of calories I wanted to eat. This may not work for each person as we are all different and have different dietary needs. I think that it is important to log what we eat each day as (for me) I can minimize in my mind what I am really eating. Putting it in black and white makes it real.

Thanks for the encouragement. I like your idea about very light meal at dinner...If we all cut back our bread intake...(which for me is huge) I am sure we could all reach our goals with just a little effort
