yeah so... I've been on and off my diet for the last couple months. Any idea to help keep motivated?

I made a morning ritual, where I sat down, and imagined my slimmer self, what I would feel like, what I would wear and so on. Kind of started my breakfast off more motivated and helped me get through the day too.

I have a pair of my old jeans and a picture of myself (during my brief period of skinny days) hung on my closet door, and another skinny me pic taped to the fridge.

I don't know if you've already done this, but write down some small goals. Whether they be weight or otherwise and try to stick to them. I found that last year when I had the goal of losing a few pounds by vacation that I stuck with it, but then after vacation I faltered. So, now I'm back and have set some small goals for myself to keep a date in mind and keep my motivation up. Another goal I've made has to do with the DVD's I workout with. I am using the Insanity DVD's right now and want to be able to do more every week, so that keeps me motivated to work hard. A reward system is also motivating. Being able to buy some new clothes when you reach a goal, or a small kitchen appliance, take a trip, or whatever you want. You've obviously worked to lose the 19 lbs. that show here, so you can do this! Good luck!!
Goals for 2015:
Start a running program
Sign up & complete a 5K- Done
Get a bike and use it!

I know i get unmotivated when I am too tired, hungry or lonely. Get some rest, eat healthy and hang out with buddies. Good Luck!

I am rewarding myself with a vacation to Hawaii when I lose 50 lbs. it is actually easy to save for this since I am not eating out so much while on the diet. I am so excited to go and imagine the cute new swimsuit I will buy!
I am not losing weight. I am gaining health. Since April 24, 2012:
