Welcome to the FitDay forums.
Yes, you CAN succeed, and it sounds like you're off to a great start.
My advice is to enter all your food intake into FitDay. Weigh and measure portions, at least for a while. Figure out your calorie deficiet and how much you can eat to maintain your desired rate of loss.
Oh, and try not to think of "all the weight" you want to lose. Just think about losing one pound. Losing one pound is easy, right? Anyone can lose one pound. All you need to do is lose one, and repeat as neccessary.
