Hey Old Crow welcome to the caves! Best of luck on your journey - I'll echo what others have already said - cut the wheat and the processed crap and you will start to see the pounds dropping off. Once you get over the infamous carb flu you will feel loads better too! If you find it hard to break away from the foods you are emotionally attached to you might want to check out Dean Dwyer's book Make Shi(f)t Happen - its not a bad read and has a few aha and head slapping moments along the way. It helped me get back on track when I slipped off the trail a while back.
