Forget about getting skinny
Over time I did learn a lot about the food I was eating, and how to make sure my daily diet was balanced. About 25% protein, 55% carbs, and the rest as good fats. I found MyFitnessPal.com, which has tools to help track what I was eating and how many calories I was burning through exercise. It helped me calculate my BMR and set realistic goals. BUT, and please trust me on this, I didn't start that way, and neither do you. Just decide to change your life and eat right and exercise. Use a piece of paper to track your weight about once a week. Once in while take your waist measurement. If you want to do more, click "The Tools" link at the top of this page.
DO NOT WAIT TO BECOME AN EXPERT. JUST DO IT! That is your take-away today; if you don't like how you look today, then start living each day differently. Eat Right! Exercise! The weight WILL take care of itself.
