Glad you found us!
The good news is that generally the bigger you are, the faster you will lose (of course, as you slim down, so do the weekly loses).
Keep logging all your food and exercise into FitDay and don't skimp on the water--I try for at least 1 gallon a day and should probably do more.
You might also think about joining the new Lose 10% of you Body weight by the 4th of July challenge when it starts up on April 1st (which is when the current one ends). Losing 10% of your body weight is a big goal that is still fairly easy to acheive in 12 weeks or so if you work at it.
If there's anything we can do to help you on your weight loss/fitness journey, just ask.
