How Do You Stay Motivated?
I break things down into small goals and give myself a reward when I achieve each goal. I give myself frequent pats on the back for any small victory, and accept the fact that I am not, nor ever will be perfect with my eating. The goal for me is to improve my habits overall. If I am having trouble with motivation I list the goals I have met, (5lbs. lost, getting my wedding rings back on, one day without eating junk, etc.). The biggest thing for me has been to forgive myself. I forgive me for getting to the point of desperatly needing to do something, for not being perfect (that is a huge thing for a perfectionist)for hurting myself, and anything else that comes to mind. I am my own harshest critic and will whip myself to death. I have to forgive myself in order to move on. If I have a bad day/week, etc. I have to let it go and move on. If I don't I will have no motivation to continue the journey I have begun. It is a life long journey because even when I lose all the weight I wanted I still have to maintain it. That is when it is most difficult, learning to live it daily.

You can do this, good luck.
