The American diet of fast, cheap, abundant, and eaten fast has led us down a plump path.
If you want to turn that around for yourself, you'll need some focus and inspiration.
If you're planning to lose weight and get back to a real-foods diet, I'd highly suggest you motivate. Goals are difficult to reach unless you know exactly what you want besides just, "I want to lose (x) pounds."
Visuals are very helpful and especially to manifest weight loss. You have to really see it in your head, what you'd wear, how you'd move, the choices you'd make throughout the day. During my weight loss, I reminded myself of how surfer girl would live and move, eat, and rest. She was my focus.
I'm daisies and barefeet, yellow gingham and bubbles, viking and surfer, cowboy hat and sandals, blow-up swimming pool and coconut oil, fresh garden fruit and spontaneous dancing. I'm the colors of sea, sky, and citrus. I'm positive and upbeat. I'm a dreamer and a doer. My scent is spicy ginger and sandalwood. I'm the sound of laughter and humming.

Here's me 40 pounds heavier, and now (even with Bell's palsy recovering, the face is very different).
