Losing weight...

I want to start losing weight. I know it would make me feel better about myself. Problem is, there's so much information out there, so many tips and tecniques, diets, etc that its hard to even know where to begin. I know I need to eat healthier, but exactly what does that consist of? I'm terrible at counting calories. I could join one of the programs, but their expensive and I'm not sure how much I'd learn anyway...I don't really want to be on them for the rest of my life either. I know I need to be more active, and have seriously given thought to using the treadmills we have at work. One day a week to start, that's not too much I don't think.
In this diet though, I don't want to give up everything I enjoy. I like my mochas in the morning, and though it would probably be a good idea to cut back (money thing too), I don't want to give them up. I like the pizza when I don't feel like cooking (though I try not to do this often either). Anyone know of any communities set up for dietary ideas?
