I calorie count on livestrong.com, you put in your weight and activity level and it tells you how many calories you need to lose 1 or 2 lbs per week.. Right now I rely on packaged 100 calorie snacks for portion control, grits or oatmeal for breakfast, usually a turkey sandwhich, 100 calorie cheezits, and green salad for lunch or leftovers. It's easy to bring a loaf of bread and deli meat and keep at the office for the week. Been making a point to serve a vegetable with dinner instead of meat and three starches like I usually had. Like broccolli and cheese steam bags, brussel sprouts with some cajun seasoning, easy and it tastes good! Easy changes are switch ground turkey for beef, I really can not taste the difference and drops from 30% fat to 7%. I'm still eating "bad" food (fried fish) or chips and dip when they are offered, just mentally counting the chips or only a few bites of dip.
Good Luck, any changes are better than none! Come join us in the 100% Christmas challenge, we need some new blood and there are 37 days left!
Think about how quickly 2011 went by. 2012 will go by even faster. Don't you want to spend that time losing weight?
