Try cutting back, or altogether cutting out, one indulgence--for me it's been lattes. Instead I take my coffee, mix it with some milk, and heat it in saucepan. Same creamy taste, 1/3 the calories. I also cut breads--and replaced with yogurt, low sodium soups, and cottage cheese to get the calcium and fiber and protein needed w/o wasting calories on high-fructose corn syrup and partially-hydrogenated fats. I try to avoid any breads with these two ingredients. And start walking--it will ease you into a fitness routine that you could live with. Plus, there's the added bonus of getting to see first-hand and regularly how crazy your neighbors are.
