Anonymous asked: You just gotta find your own motivation! Take it step by step by adding more on to your workouts and healthier foods into your diet. Focus on health, not "thinness or beauty." You're already beautiful so becoming healthy can't change that. Confidence comes when you decide to be confident and not care what any one else thinks because you are perfect just the way you are!! Good luck and I hope your journey goes well :)

I’ve been trying to lose weight for the longest time and I just can’t seem to stick to anything. I have no motivation to keep going. I mean, there’s no doubt that I want to lose weight, improve my self-confidence and just feel good about myself, but I have to REAL motivation to do so. Does anyone have any advice they can offer or motivation ideas? Please, someone help me.
My name is Coley and I’m a 22 year old college student. I’ve struggled with my weight ever since I can remember. I was constantly picked on in school for the way I looked. For a period in elementary school I also grew up in an abusive home. I came home to step-father who called me fat and worthless. I grew up believing that he was right, even after my mom divorced him and he was out of my life. His constant emotional abuse followed me up until 2 years ago. I decide enough was enough. I wasn’t going to let him have that much power over me. He would no longer control my feelings toward myself and my happiness. I decided to start losing weight and his voice when from being a screaming voice in my head to a whisper before it disappeared forever. I’m currently 50.2 pounds lighter than when I started but most importantly, I can finally look in the mirror and love the person starring back at me.

I hate to say it, but I’m back at my high weight. And the timing couldn’t be any worse.
I need to get serious about losing weight again. I lost almost 15lbs last summer and gained 10lbs back over the school year. I’m so sick of this vicious cycle of losing and gaining weight. I need to make a serious lifestyle change and eat better and stop being lazy. I need this. I need to lose weight again. I need to start feeling good about myself again. I need this NOW.
