I try to take one day at a time, make sure I don't plan to far ahead. Whenever things get bad I like to look at old pictures and see how far I've come. Or I do a workout that used to be challenging that I am able to finish now. Motivation needs to come from yourself, and you need to work at it every day and not just when you're feeling down. :) Remember every one struggles with something and there is nothing wrong with that!
The best way for me is to read a page of motivational quotes, or listen to my favorite pump me up song, "Whip it" It makes me laugh and forget all my worries. Hard part is getting myself to do it.

It took me 10 months to lose 50 pounds but over 2 1/2 years to lose the last 30. It doesn't mean I was doing anything wrong per se, but I had to learn all I could about this process, which is where I believe educating ourselves can be a big factor in getting us off the diet roller coaster.
What I had to learn was this journey is one that I will have to be on for the rest of my life. It MUST become a lifestyle--in my eating and activity. It took me 3 1/2 years to lose 80 pounds but I am proud to say I have kept the weight off longer than it took me to lose it (4 years next month) and that is the first time ever I can say that in my 51 years!
You can do this!

We all get to a point where we are frustrated with our weight and it's times like these that you just have to continue being positive and just focusing on what you are trying to accomplish. I feel kind of irritated because I just want to lose the fat fast but it doesn't work that way and I end up looking at other people who are bigger than me and they are losing the fat instantly. Even though, for them it's much harder because of their weight they still remain positive and they are focused on their goals. I'm not staying that I am not but I'm just confused because I hear so many eating tips and fitness workout ideas and it's kind of all of over the place that I end up feeling overwhelmed. All I want is to a sort of speech or focus in case I fall down. What do you guys do when this happen to you?
