Trying to become a healthier version of me…Need help!

I am a 19 year old female at about 5'7 and 140 lbs. I am aware that this is within the normal BMI range, however, thanks to the notorious freshman 15 (I actually gained about 10 pounds), I am not where I want to be. It is not so much the weight that I have an issue with, but it is the fact that my unhealthy habits cannot be good for my health and my body Weight loss will hopefully just be an added benefit :) I am ready for a lifestyle change. Where should I start? How long will it take to start seeing results?

If anyone has advice, personal experiences, similar circumstances, or encouragement please let me know!

Normally if the efforts applied correctly the results should be visible in a couple weeks or even sooner. The universal rules might be spelled as try to avoid processed food at all, eliminate sugar and fats. One of the best best best tricks if to drink a glass or more of fresh water when you feel like eating and make it a habit having some water before each meal. When basic rules start working on subconscious level, it actually doesn't feel as thee is so many restrictions. The goal is to eat food based on needs rather than on habits or any other influence factor such as socializing or snacks. It will be hard to switch those habits as they are vigorously promoted and it takes a great deal of strength to resist in the beginning. You might want to follow someone who has established a solid base to help you go through the break point. Feel free to ask questions and share your experience!
