Jessica welcome to Sparkpeople. You have come to the right place. This is the best website. Everyone is very friendly and supportive. Lots of good information and useful tools to help you along the way.
Be sure to read the Getting Started Guide and take it from there. Join a few teams and become involved. This is where you will get most of your support and make friends too. You may find reading some of the success stories very helpful too. They are all very motivating.
Good luck to you in reaching your goals. Together we will travel this weight loss journey and reach our goals too.
