Welcome - I think a lot of SparkPeople are exactly the same way, including me to some extent. Now I'm 'setting myself up to succeed' by enlisting face-to-face friends with similar needs and interests - I'm amazed at how quickly I've gotten 'hooked up' with others and it does seem to be having a positive effect!

There's a few sayings that help, too - one is "motivation gets you started; habit keeps you going" so try to develop healthy habits rather than trying to restructure everything at the same time - the other saying I like is 'motivation doesn't last but neither does bathing - that's why you're supposed to renew both of them every day'

Good luck!
