Hi and welcome.... I think it's great that you've made this committment to yourself. I know that 5-6 years ago I was 70+ lbs heavier than I am now and when I thought about losing weight it just too daunting. I couldn't imagine the end.
What helped me was not thinking about the end. I started working out at Curves 3 days a week & eating healthier. In two years I'd lost only 17 lbs... but I felt better and was more flexible. That's when I decided to join a gym and Weight Watchers. It was slow for me and I'm still 10 - 12 lbs from my goal. I'm not perfect everyday and I get frustrated when I gain and lose the same 3-4 lbs... BUT I'm not 200 ++ lbs anymore.
Weight Watchers breaks down goals into smaller chunks and I think that's smart. Instead of having to lose 75 lbs, my first goal was 21 lbs... 10% of my weight. And when you reach that.. another 10%. Now I'm at the 5% goal. I know I'll get to my goal because it's been years and I've maintained a 60 + loss.
What I've learned is that this isn't hard, it isn't rock science.. what it is... it's a lifestyle... healthy, active, and happy. Stay focused and the longer you keep at it, the easier... yes easier it gets. Good luck to you.
