i think you've just gotta take one day at a time - you want to keep your overall goal in sight, but sometimes it feels overwhelming so i find it easier to just focus on each day. and i try not to write off a whole day if i choose to eat something that isn't particularly healthy - if i slip up one meal, that doesn't mean the rest of the day has to be the same.
my motivation was gone for ages, but has come flying back in the last few weeks. for me, it was going back to a pt - cos i actually see improvements in other things like my fitness, so i don't obsess so much about the scales, i focus on my health instead.
i read somewhere that you need to start with goals that it's almost impossible not to reach - that way you feel like you've achieved something...and then you can increase the goals as you go.
eek. this isn't making much sense at all, is it?!
