Hi there! Welcome.
Have you checked out the 100+ pounds to lose thread in the weight loss forums? ( The Official Unisex 100+ Pounds to Lose Thread
) You'll find a lot of other folks there with big weight loss goals with a perspective on what that's like. The forums are a great place to find a buddy, too, or a whole community of buddies!!
There's also kind of an established thread for those looking for buddies: New here - looking for a diet buddy...?
I hope some of these help! Welcome again, we're all about accountability and support
