Hello, and welcome to the forum. I was pretty close to your starting weight when I started this journey, only I'm older and probably shorter. If I can do this, so can you. I think the 2 things that helped me most were to make changes one at a time, baby steps, and realizing that healthy mom = healthy family. My kids are a ton more active now, and they make much better choices when it comes to eating. It takes time to get the family on board, brace yourself for some kicking and screaming. But it's worth the effort.
