You aren't alone in the struggle. Last year my heaviest was 180! I've lost over 50 pounds in less then 12 months. It wasn't easy I had to cut my calorie intake in half and start walking on my treadmill a lot more, but it was worth it. I still have a ways to go. Don't be to hard on yourself, stress can make it harder to lose weight, or you could end up starving yourself if you let yourself get to upset. If you aren't taking a multi vitamin, I would suggest that you get some, I didn't lose any weight before I started taking them.
