One of the problems with having 100+ pounds to lose is that it can get VERY overwhelming, especially on those weeks that you only lose 1 or worse 0 pounds. I was very successful a couple of years ago using sparkpeople, but unfortunately I stopped doing the things that made me successful. I am trying to do as many things to put reminders how far I have com, and why I am doing this.
I have a large glass apothecary jar and I purchased colored glass rocks. On my weigh in days I am going to add the number of pounds I lost into the jar, by the time I reach my goal it should be a beautiful centerpiece and only I have to know what it stands for. It will remind me every time I see it how far I have come. And half full it will already be beautiful.
I will HATE it if I have to take stones out of the jar, so I call it my Accountability Apothacary. Corny I know!
Be well, and take care of yourself.
