I am also fairly new to 3FC but everone I have met here is very nice. Don't be afraid to lose the weight and keep exercising. Think back to before you started working out. Don't you feel better and have more energy now than you did then?
As far as the scales go, since you are working out as well as watching what you eat you are building muscle as well as burning fat, muscle weighs more than fat does, try doing body measurements instead of weighing in, or do both. But, don't do them every day, try once a week. You won't see a change every day and you are more likely to get discouraged, try once aweek or so. I alternate, I weigh in one week and do body measurements the next.
Don't give up!!! If you cheat occasionally that's ok, we all do. If you deny yourself all the time you are much more likely to give up.
Remeber, you don't want to lose all at once or very quick because then you are more likely to gain it back.
Keep plugging away
