I dont exactly know what to do or how to start this adventure, but its one i need to start. My goal is to lose 100 pounds in a year. I hope to lose about 3 pounds a week to start. I have a lot to lose and I believe this is possible, I just need help figuring out where to start and how to start. I would also like to have some weight loss buddies. People i can email, text, or chat with every day, or every other day, to keep each other in check, to support and encourage each other. I dont have this in real life, so I am hoping for it here.

Biggest hurdle to overcome in weightloss: I am an emotional eater and a carb addict. I also have a problem with portion control and being able to tell when I'm full.
Following any specific plan: A mix of everything really-low cal/reduced carbs/increased fruit, veggies, protein. Also keeping a food journal.
What is different this time in your weight loss efforts than in the past: I will hopefully be getting married soon and starting a family-I need to get healthier if not for me, for my future children. I've finally realized that I deserve to be happy I'm also not depriving myself of anything this time around because that always led to failure in the past
