Welcome to FitDay! I'm new here too and so far I LOVE the site. First let me say CONGRATS ON YOUR 10lbs lost!!! I've only started my weight loss journey this past Sunday and when I stepped on the scale tonight I'm 4.5lbs lighter, so apparently I'm on the right track.
More veggies and water so far have helped me, so keep up that good work. What I've learned is that if I religiously input my food then I can actually "see" what I'm eating, and it holds me more accountable. Exercise is still a work in progress for me, I'm trying to find what is best for my specific needs (I have horrible knee problems so a lot of walking/leg work is hard for me). I'm a carb lover, so I've been trying to watch those as well. I've had to really cut down on my pastas and breads, huge weaknesses for me.
Aside from that, I've made it a game of sorts to make sure as soon as I eat something to log it into the diary, even when I'm on the go. If you have an iPhone, definitely download the app, it's so worth the FREE pricetag on it =) I've found that it's easier to log my foods by creating them in the custom foods, the ones they have on the site sometimes don't match up as close as I'd like.
Off topic, but I saw that you're from SC, so one Carolinian to another.....WELCOME!!
