Post Eaten Healthy

My name is Tracey and I am 41 yrs old I am married and have 3 wonderful kids. This past week my father-n-law had a heart attack and had triple by-pass surgery. He stated that it was time for things to change. He doesnt know how true that it. For the last 20yrs I have been battling my weight and I dont wont to do it anymore. This time its not about the scales its about me getting healthy for me and my kids. I want to do my part in preventing as many health problems as I can but at the rate I am going I am on a course for disaster. i have tried just about every diet there is , some have been successful others have not but I have never been able to keep the weight off for more than a yr or 2 because I never changed my ways. I only worried about the scales. I would appreciate any advice , support, menus, receipes, ect. that you think might help. I want to change my life and I know with that I will lose weight.
