Looks good. Here are two things that helped me in the past:
I started snacking on air-popped popcorn rather than chips. Ziploc bags make it portable for school/work. I picked up my airpopper at Habitat for Humanity's Thrift store for $4.

For drinks I started making tea at home and really got into loose teas, though I had to order most of them online. That lipton green tea with citrus is awesome though.

These are just suggestions as it is about personal taste and what works for you.

Best of luck.

Popcorn is sort of love and hate thing for me. I love buttered popcorn or cheese popcorn or carmel corn. I feel disappointed by regular plain undecorated popcorn.

Now as to tea, I have a love of tea as well and i have a tea maker and I have loved loose and bagged teas of different types. Good stuff.

Try a bit of parmesan cheese? Not sure how many calories that would add.

I've cut out soda's myself (on day 3). :)
Good luck! You can do it!

yeah soda's are bad for you so good on you for quitting.

Good start! I wouldn't have thought that chicken thighs had that many calories, though. The BBQ sauce adds a lot. Have you tried using a dry rub instead? The water intake is very good. I'm glad you've given up cola. I have only recently learned how very bad for you they are.

I read somewhere how the taking of cocain out of Coke was redundant compared to what the coke actually does to you. I might try a dry rub in the future.

Congrats on doing healthy stuff!

Hoshiadam can probably suggest a bunch of low-calorie snacks that he uses. Bananas are good and filling, he eats a lot of those when he's on his diet. There are a bunch of good low-calorie vegetables, too, which would give you a lot of vitamins and fiber so that the calories you're getting aren't empty.

I might be interested in suggestions. Any help ios always apreciated.

Bananas are prety good, a medium sized one is about 100 calories. Also recommend mott's natural applesauce - they don't add any extra sugar, so it is only 50 calories per cup instead of 100 for most applesauce. Grapes have a pretty decent number in a 100 calorie serving as well, iirc. Lettuce is always a good choice if you are wanting to eat something filling. A HEAD of lettuce (5", 163 grams) is only 21 calories. You can almost fudge any calories from lettuce if you wanted. Its also good at the begining while you are transitioning to eating less, as you can still fill up on it. While the crazy lettuce wrap burgers/chicken might seem wierd, you are cutting out a significant number of calories by not eating a sandwich bun (usually around 200).

http://www.thecaloriecounter.com/ is a good resource also.

Since you are shooting for ~2500 calories per day for now, Id recommend trying to get at least 300 calories of fruits and vegetables. Yogurt might count a little, but I found that the fruit and veggies were actually pretty good about being a snack. They seemed to be a good pick-me-up on top of more staple foods.

SparkPeople is also a pretty nifty web resource if you haven't stumbled onto it yet.
