First time for everything....

This is my first time posting to this particular community, so here goes..

Starting wt.:268
Current wt.: 230
Goal weight: 165
Height: 5'8"

Okay, well, I've been on Weightwatchers now for over a year, and I have to be totally honest - I've lost my motivation. I'm not keeping track of my points, I'm not exercising as much as I should, and I'm kind of wandering around looking for motivation. Any ideas on how I can get my motivation back?

Also, I know that my true motivation should be to feel better about myself. I get that, but if what really might spur me is a combination of proving to myself that I can do this, but also to prove to other people that I won't remain fat for the rest of my life, isn't that motivation valid as well? I have a 10 year class reunion coming up in 2 years - now I realize that that seems like a long ways away, but why not get it off now and keep it off and be comfortable in my skin by the time the reunion rolls around? This is my true goal. However, I would really like to have the remaining 65 pounds off by my birthday of next year, which is April 4th, 2004. Any thoughts you might have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks much!

First off congrats on your progress so far. Maybe you can think to yourself that you are practically halfway there already, why not keep going? Also, I'm sure you are aware that many people experience a 'plateu' effect, where their weight loss starts to slow down. Don't let that discourge you.
