Where are you now with your weight goals?
Look yourself in the mirror and then go live the rest of the day wanting to change what you saw.
Motivation is all about personal will. Do you want to lose weight? Some people think they want to lose weight because someone around them either says they should or is losing weight also. Figure out why you want to lose weight, write down the reasons. When you feel the need for comfort food or second helpings just read why you want to lose weight, if it's a good enough reason for you than you'll be motivated not to make bad food choices.
A friend of mine posted her goal weight and her actual weight on a social site. She then set weekly public goals and held herself accountable by posting her actual weight every friday. She also posted exactly what she ate each day. She recieved lots of positive reinforcement from people with her progress.
