" It's like I have no support around me, and I feel like everyone needs that push."
The lack of external support is common, typical... that's why the "push" (that I agree, we all need) has to come from WITHIN.
If something is "extremely important" to you - do not allow success/failure to rely on external forces. You can't control external forces. If you frame it in your mind as "I will lose weight and get healthier (but only IF I get support and encouragement from my mother/sister/spouse/co-workers/diet-buddy/etc.)" then you cannot succeed, because nobody can provide you with sufficient support/encouragement/motivation. You have to frame it as "I will lose weight and get healthier - NO MATTER whether anyone helps me." Then any help or support you get, will be an added bonus - but your program won't be at constant risk of failure due to the fading-away of external support systems.
