i find it can also be helpful to have a slight change of focus, like focus on your fitness, being able to run so far in so much time, or being able to lift such a weight or whatever, or your diet and say you will make sure you eat so much fruit or veg or drink so much water. that way, by focusing on your health, you won't feel depressed and anxious about your weight, which can make for a hinderance to weight loss, if you focus on your health and can feel that your getting healthier, fitter etc. you won't feel so sad if you don't lose weight for a bit because you are still making progress! and chances are you lose more weight anyway. I don't it works for me. I think sometimes when you goals are too strongly weight driven, then you can make bad food choices (trying to restrict too much and miss out on nutrition, or binge) or feel that its not worth going to the gym because you aren't losing weight. I felt a bit like this, but now although I am still concerned about losing weight, I am primarily concerned about my health and wellbeing and in having this as my main focus as oppose to losing weight, I am losing more weight than when my main focus was losing weight.
Hope that helps! Good luck!
