How I did it: myfitnesspal.com <<-- JOIN, seriously. A great web of support, a huge bank of knowledge, and a awesome resource to help you pay attention to your eating/activity habits. I started out with a 10 day juice fast (reboot.com for info and links to recipes, also documentary "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" inspired this... it's good for people of all sizes).
