As to how I am doing it...
#1- Food-- I use fitday.com to track everything... I don't have an exact cut off or limit, but it does make me pay attention to what I eat.
#2- Water-- I used to drink soda, rarely water. Now I drink only water (i used the little flavored packets that have like 10 calories a packet)... I drink AT LEAST 100 oz. a day.
#3- Exercise-- Walking mostly. Some stretching. Started at under half a mile a day... Now I walk a mile most evenings.
#4-- protein. Yup.... I think that I am prone to not really caring whether I eat protein or not. But it definitely helps you feel full longer, gives you energy longer, and wards off cravings.
#5- journaling. For the first couple weeks, I basically pep talked myself up daily.
#6- support. Online and IRL friends.
