One thing I forgot to add, and this may sound blunt. But at 335 it has probably taken a lifetime of poor eating habits to get to that weight. I know you want fast results and we all crave that instant gratification. But I think you would benefit from focusing on building a foundation of new healthy habits. It will take more than a year to get to a healthy weight, so you need to be in it for the long haul. Just think after a year how many healthy habits you will make. With all the tools in place to live a healthy lifestyle, you won't let yourself go back to your old ways.
