Just take it a day at a time. Your overall goal is to lose a certain amount of weight. But you can also make little short terms goals along the way. Like having weekly goals. I think a lot of people make the new year's resolution to lose weight, then try to jump into a diet cold turkey, and then give up. Instead of taking baby steps and making short term goals which are easier to accomplish. I break my weeks into 2 parts. Since I eat very little animal products, the first 3 days of the week, I'm exercising, and eating a lot of fruits & veggies. The next 3 days I still exercise, but I also include grains/legumes along with some fruit & veggies. I keep one day open where I may eat some animal products like fish, chicken. etc. Or go out to a restaurant. But only a small portion. So overall, you'll see some good results if you stick to your short term goals. Also, accomplishing short term goals keeps the diet fresh & exciting! I wish you well! Cool

Actually thinking about food is good if you keep the right perspective. You already know what type of foods caused you to gain weight. So focus on foods that will help you get healthier. I know it's not easy. I used to a very heavy meat & sweets eater. But that route led me to have excessive weight, high blood pressure, and bad health. Then I started focusing on foods that promotes good health, along with exercise, not just only lose weight. That route led me to have better health, normal blood pressure, and lose weight. In essence, your main focus on your diet is to be healthier first, and lose weight second. Trust me, if you work on the first part, the losing weight part will be sooooo much easier and will come naturally. So yea, think about food a lot. But try to focus on what's healthier for you instead worrying about what foods you miss eating. Take careCool

Coffee good for weight loss?
I have been a coffee drinker for years. I still put on the weight so I really do no think it helps weight loss unless you drink too much and it makes you sick.
