Hi Silly Lulu!! WELCOME to this forum!
I am glad you found a couple of good reasons to start making healthier choices!
One of the best ways to start getting a grip on things is to start a food journal. Don't bother trying to make any big changes right away, just start writing down every bite of food you eat. I like to use the free food journal on www.fitday.com it also calculates the calories for you.
The main thing is to write all the foods you eat and drink and the amounts (make a note of the time and your mood if you can). Once you have a week's worth of journal, you can analyze it and see where you could make some healthier choices.
Don't try to change everything all at once. Make small changes and keep those small changes until they become habit. Once they are habit, make another small change. You will be surprised how effective this can be.
