Well, that's why FitDay is so great--it makes tracking your food and exercise easy! I don't personally log my moods, or "journal" my feelings (not that there's anything wrong with that) but FitDay lets you do that, too.
I would start with tracking your food. That is most important. Enter every single thing you eat or drink for a week. That will give you an idea of your average calorie intake.
Once you've got that going, enter your body stats--height, weight, age and so forth.
When the week is up, you will know how many calories you consume on average. Now, you can see how many calories your body burns a week.
Now comes the magic: Decide on a calorie intake level that is less than your body burns and you WILL lose weight. It's really that easy.
Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions or need advice. We're here to help!
