Since we humans are social beings, we (whether we want to admit it or not) care what others think. What I have found helpful is telling others about my goals and plans. For example, if I share that I'm trying to eat healthy and work out with coworkers, I'll get the occasional question of "how are the workouts going," etc. from them.
Knowing that others are going to expect some results from me helps me stay on track!
Thanks all for the great suggestions! I just need to make it my priority and do it. Schedule it like an appointment I can't miss.

You just have to make yourself do it. At some point, it will click and you will feel it. It's hard to explain! I struggle with this myself; it's so easy to make the "wrong" choice (eat the crap food, skip the workout, etc.).

For the last 10 days, I have been having a terrible time with discipline. I am tired of everything. Yes, even the computer. I am tired, rundown, exhausted. I just feel really out of sorts.
I have to keep one foot in front of the other and my eyes on my goals in order to make sure I stay on track each day.

We do what is important to us. I don't always want to go to work, feed the dog, do laundry... The positives of doing these things outweigh the negatives. I make myself go to work because I want to pay my bills. I feed the dog beause I'd feel badly if it starved. I diet and exercise to improve my health and appearance. I make it as much a part of my daily routine as going to work, feedng the dog, etc. It's not a "if I feel like it," "if I have time," "if there's nothing better to do" activity. Sparks motivation, information and support is a huge help.
so how bad do you want it.........? How hard are you willing to work to make it happen..........? You have to dig deep inside yourself to find it. You and only you can figure this out. Good luck. You need to love yourself enough to want this...........

It isn't a question that anyone else can answer for you, if you don't feel it way down inside, nothing anyone else says or makes you read will suddenly "do it" for you..........it's like falling in love, different for everyone. Could be asking and worrying about it means the body and mind are not meshing yet..
