Welcome to FitDay.

Don't despair--what you want to accomplish can be done, and you're in the right place to do it.

My story is very similar to yours, though I left 350 way behind before I decided to do something about it (this time).

I see you've figured out your calorie burn--just stay under that and you'll lose weight. Personally, I like to run a bigger deficeit but you've got to decide what you can live with. This HAS to be a lifestyle change, not a "diet".

Please, read through the subforums--lots of great advice. Also, please consider joining us in the 100+ to Lose thread in the Diet Tips forum--everyone there knows what you're going through. And don't hesitate to ask if you have questions or need advice.
