Thank you for your support! I'm just feeling overwhelmed ATM... It's hard for me to imagine those people who have lost hundreds of pounds when I've been struggling with 'those extra ten pounds' since I was a teenager... And over the last ten years, 'those extra ten pounds' have doubled, tripled and now quadrupled, LOL! But it's okay. I'm setting myself specific long- and short-term goals. I started a blog that I'm going to try to dedicate myself to, and I registered here and on MyFitness something-or-other on my iPad, so hopefully I can stay focused. I'm tracking exercise, calories and water... Is there anything else helpful I can do? I don't want to burn out and give up (which I am very prone to doing!), but anything that would make this task seem less daunting would be appreciated!

I know there's gonna be an awful lot of running to do... Geronimo!

Think positive - you can do it. Keep active on the site and use the tools especially the trackers and you will get there.

Never give up, never quit, never surrender

You only fail when you stop trying

There is nothing to hold you back except you.

You can press forward long after you canít. Itís a matter of wanting it bad enough.

The bad news is: we are our own worst enemies. The good news is: we are our own greatest champions.

So... Hello. I'm never really good at these kinds of things, and truthfully, I'm really worried that I'll lose focus and motivation before reaching my goal. I guess it's hard for me to believe that I actually GAINED all this weight, so it's even harder to imagine LOSING it! Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated! Haha, I already messed up entering my weight at sign up, so we'll see how well this goes.
