congratulations on the start of your journey. My little piece of advice is to look at it as a lifestyle change rather than a diet, that way it will be more likely to stick to it for the long term.
Logging the journal regularly is the single most important decision you have made to take control of the weight problem. Try to focus on the process rather than the scale so that your motivation will not fade when the scale will not move as fast as you expect as it is inevitable after the initial period when you loose a lot of water weight which can fluctuate a lot.
Anyway good luck!
