Well, a year ago (almost to the day) I was about this size. and I gave up. I don't want to do that again!!!!
Now, I look at my daughter (she's almost 2) and I think about how I want to see her kids grow up and play with them too. I want to be a fit mommy, and run and play with her outside, and be a great example. I look at my husband, and I want to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and enjoy it!
Really, I just want to be healthy. I want to teach my kids healthy habits! I get motivated then!

Long-term perspective. A year from today, I don't want to say that I wish I'd started today.
Usually what re-motivates me is to read my old journals of when I was heavier. I read about how sad-miserable really-I was during that time, and how much I looked forward to getting to my goal weight. More recently, I've been thinking about how I promised myself that if I could just focus on my school without having to work, I would use that extra time to exercise and eat right, and get to my goal weight. I'm still in school, and I still don't have a job-and there's a free gym to my use, so that's what I've been using to push myself to do it. Think about commitments you've made to yourself before, and think about ways to keep those promises.
