REQUEST: Weight Loss Assistance

I live in the Tampa, Fl area and am looking for help with weight loss. My whole life I've always been bigger and with little weight loss I seem to achieve for myself I gain back exponentially. In fact, I managed to lose 35 pounds at one point, plateau, and gain 65. I've seriously considered bariatric surgery but would like to lose it through diet and exercise. I don't eat horribly but my portions are a problem for me. I don't feel satisfied unless I'm full.

All of this has taken its toll on not only my health but my personal relationships, self esteem, and motivation for anything. At 28 years old and 5'5" I am at the heaviest I've ever weighed at 281 and am looking for help. Thank you.
