    We can't motivate you, that has to come from within. What this forum can do is give feedback on specific questions or ideas you have. We can support you in your logs, compare training notes, and shoot the **** in the off-topic forum. I wish you the best of luck with your current goal and my only motivation is that its gonna suck but its going to be worth it.

    Advice:

    Read A LOT of reputable sources that give tips on your goals.

    Avoid supplements until you are at your desired bodyweight.

    Do it slow. By changing only one or two things at a time, you will make steady progress and be able to assess how a specific change affects your weight loss.

    No idea what your diet is like- but if u drink any soda- diet or regular. Stop it YESTERDAY. U dont need it; it's poison. Same goes for anything processed and loaded with sugar and preservatives. That stuff is killing people around the world. Once u eliminate sugar and trans fats and preservatives- you will easily lose 100 pounds rather quickly that's no exaggeration.

    It doesn't happen over night! You can put on weight fast but it takes much longer to lose it. Good luck! You know what isn't good for you. So just say no! Have will, and be serious about a change..

    My recommendation is to realize that fitness is a lifetime journey. Its not going to happen overnight. Watch your diet, and exercise. Good things will happen to you.

    Check out other peoples progress and see how they have changed and how much happier they are.
    I originally lost 45lb of weight when starting all this 4years ago, since then I cant tell you how much happier and confident you feel, especially as now ive put on a load of muscle (25-30lb)

    You will have days you dont want to diet or eat clean, but just smash that food down and get on with it, throw in a cheat meal once a week and look forward to it, this will help massively.

    Good luck

    You've got that right! There are days its tougher to stay on schedule, on those days I tell myself I'll feel so much better once I start lifting. And invariably once I get started I don't want to stop. Lifting makes me feel good, its almost like a drug.......
