I am extremely motivated right now, I had some revelations this weekend about why I'm doing this. I always was trying to lose weight for someone or because I was told to. I really just need to learn to live healthy and the weight will take care of itself. I am going to eat and exercise to treat my Type 2 Diabetes, if I lose weight in addition to that, then great. That way I don't feel so pressured to look at the scale and to be disappointed over an arbitrary number. I gained some perspective that I really needed.
I'll still track my weight, but I'm not letting that number control my feelings about myself anymore. There is more to me than my weight, and I had forgotten that. So here is to friends that show us the truth about ourselves that we are blind to.
