Protein????
Check the carbs that you are eating already and read the labels then substitute a comparable product with more protein. Example: alot of breads are so overprocessed that they have very little protein choose a higher quality bread with more grams of protein per slice. Also substitute whole grain pasta for white pasta. And the more protein you add to your diet the less hungry you will be in between meals. I find that a whole wheat english muffin with peanut butter can last me till lunch whereas a 1 full of sugar pop tart with no protein will last about an hour.

Calories in Calories out
thanks cmikerun for your answer to my question about the pie chart. and from what i've read here perhaps walking and swimming aren't enough for me to get the results i want-i need to get to the gym! ( i DO have a membership lol) when you say good carbs, you mean whole grains fruits and veggies? i love peanuts/peanut butter on celery but "everyone says" that's too much fat?

I NEED MOTIVATION!
I agree with Peefat but would like to offer a way of increasing your personal motivation. Write a list of every reason you can think of that you want to lose weight. Every time you're about to order french fries or something equally high in fat/high calorie/high sugar review this list.

Counting Calories

Depressed
exercise will increase the serotonin in your brain (the happy hormones) and the pain from your tooth may not be so bad also. usually just doing somethin, anythin will get me out of my funk i think that your idea of 5 minutes on the wii is a good one- you can do it!
