Welcome Imask8r! As Michael said above it's about how many calories you take in versus how many your body burns. Use the Fitday tools to find your Base Metabolic Rate (BMR) and calculate a weight loss goal. Adding your activities will help you set limits on how many calories you can eat daily. Some find that shifting some of their carbohydrate calories to protein calories helps them lose weight. If your protein calories are less than 30% of your total you may want to try this.

I am also from Denver, Westminster actually. Glad to have another local on the forums.
