Drop by the 100+ to lose thread in Diet Tips and introduce yourself, if you like--sometimes it's nice to talk to others who are/have been in your situation.
If you get your eating/exercise plan in place, and work it, I'm here to tell you that yes, you CAN get rid of that extra weight. Now, 100 in six months is pretty agrressive, but it can be done.
If you need any help or advice, don't hesitate to ask!
