Here are a few things to consider while trying to lose weight:

Talk to your doctor.
Your doctor can help you manage a healthy diet and exercise plan. Just make sure you give it a chance and stick to your doctor's recommendations.

EAT. A common mistake in trying to lose weight is cutting back on eating. It is often suggested to eat around five (this number can be adjusted to your needs and what works for you) small meals everyday. Your body's metabolism will increase so you can burn off calories easier.

Choosing Healthy. Make sure to chose healthy foods like fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole-grain pastas. Make healthy things that taste good, like bean soup, chicken salad, Spanish pasta salad, broccoli and cheese soup, and fruit salsa. Healthy does not mean boring!

Exercise. Eating healthy is not enough. Start a regular exercise program for yourself. Start out with about 30 minutes of any exercise once a day, five times a week. Gradually increase the amount of exercise as time passes. Try things like bicycling, walking, swimming, skiing, and other fun things. Try getting friends to go with you. Also, some people like to keep a small journal, recording what they did. Example:

Monday, April 12, 2010. Ran 2 miles through the woods. Time: 15:12:0.

Of course, you do not have to be extremely accurate, but it helps you see where you can improve, and it helps give you motivation.

Don't give up. Success does not always happen immediately. Sometimes you have to work really hard, and that is okay. See if you can find a support group, find people going through the same thing. You can all motivate each other and that usually makes it slightly easier. If at first you don't succeed, try again.

I wish you much luck!

Always feel free to contact me.

Have you tried http://SparkPeople.com? It's completely free, there's a message boards with loads of support, the website figures out how many calories and what not you should have a day, suggests meal plans for you, and shows you exercises that will help you. It's a great website if you can keep your mind on track for it.
