Hi Jessie,

Welcome to the forum. I'm also around 98kg (but I've had to lose 13kg to get down to that) and have a goal of 68kg. Sometimes it seems like such a long way to go, but it is achievable if you are determined & have the right support. Just think of the reward for all the effort & hard work to lose weight...a healthier & happier you :D !
