Don't quit. That is all that matters. Stay with this no matter how much you release. I've been here four years and I'm not down to my goal, but had I not done this, I'd probably be up at 244# where you are since my starting weight was 214#. I'd have continued to gain. I know you don't want to waste the best years of your life being obese. Men judge women completely by their looks, so work to be as fit and healthy as you possibly can.
