1. Slow down when you eat.
It takes about 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain that you are full.

2. Write it down.

The best way to estimate how many calories you are eating is to write what you eat in a notebook.

3. Keep things even.

Every meal should be about the same amount of calories. For example, if you should be eating 1,800 calories a day, consume 500 calories for each meal and allot 300

calories for snacks in-between meals. This means you can NOT skip breakfast and make up the calories for dinner!

4. Do not confuse thirst with hunger.

When your body is asking you to rehydrate, you might mistake it for hunger cues. Stay hydrated!

5. Be prepared.

Make your lunch the night before. Have healthy snacks (such as Larabars, fruit, Greek yogurt, etc.) in your purse/car/office to avoid hitting up the vending machine.

6. Do not expect weight loss overnight.

It is a lot harder to lose weight than gain it! Aim for weight loss of 1-2 pounds per week tops. You have to burn off and/or reduce calorie intake by 3,500 calories to

lose a pound of fat. If you want to lose 1 pound per week, you need to eat 500 less calories per day or burn an additional 500 calories per day by exercising. Formula:

500 calories x 7 days = 3,500 calories = 1 pound of weight loss.

7. Change it up.

Avoid exercising and eating the same way all the time. Try a new exercise and a new recipe to keep from falling back into old habits.

8. Spacing between meals.

During the day, eat something every 3-4 hours. Allow yourself time to eat and remember that healthy snacks between meals is OK. Keep that metabolism going!

9. Get more rest.

Seven to eight hours of sleep per night will help keep your eating schedule consistent.

10. Enlist others to participate!

Motivate one another and share success stories!

The first step is to set a goal for yourself. Saying "I want to weigh X amount" or "I want to lose X amount" is a concrete goal and something to work towards. Saying "I want to lose weight" is more nebulous, and you never quite know when you've succeeded.
You'll hear lots of great advice on here (and some not so great - pay no attention to Tiffany's advice - body shaming is a HORRIBLE thing to do to yourself!), but a common theme is calorie counting and cleaner eating. There are a lot of apps to help with calorie counting, like My Fitness Pal and Lose It!, to name a couple. They really make you focus on portion size and how many calories you really eat in a day. Sometimes just paying attention to your calorie intake makes a huge difference.
As far as cleaner eating, you'll hear a lot of recommendations about it. My advice is to eat as few pre-packaged or processed foods as possible, cut down on soda, juice, alcohol, and snacks, and use as many whole foods in your diet as you can, so you control what goes into your body.
Oh, and exercise! home hym http://jonsguide.org/best-treadmill-home/ or stationary gym , Play pokemongo or walk with your dog. Tone up your muscles and make them burn more calories for you!
