Looking forward to getting to know you all and making our dreams come true!
Hi Julie, and welcome!
We're a pretty friendly bunch, and all of us have know where you're at. Heck, after 8 months of 1500 calorie days, I'm almost down to where you're starting, so don't despair. Take one day at a time and the weight will peel off before you know it.
My advice is to pick a calorie level that is comfortable, a good mix of carbs/fat/protien and at a level that gives you a reasonable calorie deficit. Drink lots (and lots) of water and start exercising (it's tough to beat walking).
Keep us posted as to how things are going and don't hesitate to ask if you need help or advice.
