lots of good ideas here! I used my fitness pal one of the time I tried to get healthy and it is great. I am going to start back up this month. The calendar is a great idea too! Princess Vija - I like your soda/pop thoughts. I think in the past I have tried to go cold turkey and it didn't work. This time I am giving up caffeinated pop first, then moving on to the others (2 days down!). I know I will still crave it, so I may let myself have one at parties or something, but the key will be keeping it out of my house!!!
