I recommend setting small and reasonable goals, with goal dates. Especially if you have a lot of weight to lose, doing this can drastically shift your calorie recommendations. This also affects your mood because instead of seeing you need to lose say 100 pounds you see that you need to lose 20. This visually aids you in not becoming overwhelmed. Think about it, what looks better that you lost 10 of 20 or 10 of 100?
Celebrate when you hit those smaller goals! You deserve it for all your hard work! Do something nice for yourself, then set a new small goal. Make sure to re-motivate yourself so you don't think you're starting all over again.
