Firstly, go check out the diet message board of the 50-100 lbs to lose. They're the most supportive people on the internet, seriously.

How did you gain the weight? What are your "bad" food indulgences? Do you get regular physical activity?

You CAN do this, even though it seems like a lot. You CAN!

Trust me hun, we've ALL been there. And you CAN do it!

Maybe just little steps? Instead of eating a pizza, try a few servings of pizza rolls with a salad. Try some diet sodas, or cut the real stuff with seltzer?

I also have a "thing" for pizza, and yes there are ways to have your pizza and EAT it too. I just made one of these a couple of days ago so I know it's a keeper...
get the lowest fat/calorie pitas you can find. I use ones bought in the WALMART deli, Heart Healthy FLAX and whole wheat pitas.... they are 60 calories for a whole one.
Leave it whole and uncut, spread a thin layer of sauce on it, top with Turkey pepperoni, turkey sausage or a very low cal slivered ham slice cut up, then some veggies , I used gr pepper some onion and some pineapple for Hawaiian. Top with a little shredded Ital cheese and bake at 425 deg for about 7 min. This whole pizza is all YOURS for about 160 calories. Less than a SINGLE slice at pizza hut.

I think you need a weight loss program that is low-fat, low-carb, low-sodium and high protein. It's important for your meals to be nutritious and so you should make it a point to eat as many proteins as you can to your meals. An hour of exercise (even a brisk walk would be great) is highly recommended to help you lose weight faster.
