Right there. I'm used to eating empty calories and too much snacking on junk. Changing the eating habits is more than just hard, it reaches me on the psychological level. I feel deprived and a little depressed when I don't eat all the junk or eat a higher calorie meal. Trying to make the change is more of a mental challenge than a physical one.
BTW, I'm 5'9", 220 lbs. My ultimate goal is 175. That extra 45 lbs feels and looks like 145 to me and is affecting my back, knees, and ankles.
