As the old song goes,"accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative". Give yourself credit for the POSITIVE things you do for yourself and don't beat yourself because you're not perfect. You don't have to be perfect to be healthy.

You have to stop looking at weight loss and good health with an all or nothing mentality. If the only healthy thing you were to do for yourself was to drink 8 glasses of water today, that's still a step in the right direction.

One thing I would recommend is setting some simple goals that you CAN stick with. Perhaps the reason you're losing motivation is because your goals are just too ambitious to achieve. that really does set a person up for failure. Don't assume that something is wrong because the scale isn't moving as fast as you'd like it.

You've already lost 10 pounds. that's great ! Will you lose more ? Eventually, but you've got to stop beating yourself up every time you eat a little more than you wanted. change really does take time.

I agree with having clear goals. That's motivating. Also, I told myself that I will allow myself to become obsessed with this. I understand decreased motivation, but I have to do whatever works. Right now, THIS works. Cross your fingers and we'll see in a month or two. Hang in there..... be gentle on yourself and recommit! You can do it!

You stay motivated when you have clear goals that are meaningful to you and not related to weight loss.

what are your goals?

I started my weight loss journey in march of this year and have lost 10 pounds, I am 5'3" and weight 145 pounds. I started the program turbo jam and then moved on to turbo fire which has been awesome. But this past week has been terrible! I ate over my calories most days and when I didn't go over I still ate bad. I also didn't do so good on my workouts
I need so advice on how to stay motivated and keep will power strong
