I'm trying to lose also... its not easy. Specially if you feel alone. But it pushes you harder and when you see weight come off you want to push yourself even harder. Finish this goal for you no one else. It will happen in time even though we wish for overnight success. We can do it!!

Good for you! I cut out soda and I dropped like five pounds right away :) I've found that I like diet green tea much butter---it's still sweet, without the calories. It's amazing.

Starting a diet or healthy eating is great. The difficult part is when your motivation and drive plummets which leads to changes in your mood. These mood changes are the danger zone because you may endulge in comfort eating to compensate for your low mood. During times of fluctuations in mood, it's best to reinvigorate your levels of motivation by seeking out positive feedback and visiting posts such as these.

Good to know that you've  lost some inches, but don't forget you won't get from a size 13 to a size 7, just by losing inches.  You'll have to lose weight, as well.

Watch the artificial sweeteners; they can actually sabotage your efforts, by making you crave more.  Stevia is a much better choice.

Are you keeping a food diary to keep watch on the amount you eat?  MedHelp has an excellent food tracker.

What type(s) of exercise are you doing to lose your inches?

You'll have to incorporate some form of exercise. Weight training would be best, but if you can even walk for 30 minutes/day or something.  Most employers give a lunch and break times; maybe you could get in a few minutes of exercise then.  It doesn't all have to be in one block of time.  You could do 10  minutes in the morning, before work, 10 minutes at lunch and 10 minutes in the evening.

You'll also have to be careful to restrict your portions and make sure you're eating healthy foods, particularly, lots of veggies and protein.

I still caution against sugar substitutes and zero calorie drinks, because over time, they can actually sabotage your efforts.  Try drinking plenty of plain water.  It's best for keeping you hydrated and works best to keep thirst at bay, plus it fills you up.  A glass of water 30 minutes before a meal, will keep you from eating as much.
