Hi and welcome. So glad you are here to make a change! Get familiar with everything here and join some teams. Teams are good for motivation, support and accountability. Use the team search bar and type in things like interests/hobbies or the first number of your age followed by a 0 and something. Example "30 something" when you look for a team with your age you should find the right weight range, then after joining the team post on there message board that you are looking for a buddy, should get you at least one buddy, good luck on your journey.
