Hi from Cape Town and welcome Elaine
First of all, if you set yourself a realistic goal of losing Xkgs per month, you will be able to work out a goal date. I've found that the less I have to lose, the longer it actually takes!
I set myself a goal of 9months to lose 18 kgs - and made it! - then put some back on once the event had happened and I lost the plot - relaxed and thought I could coast. Then I found Spark when I had put 5kgs back on and have been encouraged, motivated, butt-kicked ever since. One of my Spark Friends has asked for a daily "kick" which several of us provide in various ways.
You have a great start - you have a support system at home and hopefully no sabateurs! Good luck - have fun on this journey to good health and fitness
