The biggest motivator for me is staying positive by remembering all of my accomplishments so far and comparing myself today to what I looked like & felt like 1 year ago or 6 months ago. I also stay motivated by using small goals for health & physical abilities as well as the scales.
Since I had over 100 pounds to lose, it's easy to be overwhelmed & bummed since I also lose weight really slowly, about the same as you farahb7. I've lost 50 and have 63 more to go for a realistic goal of being in the normal range, however it would be awesome to lose 75 more since that was my weight in my early 20's. We may be turtles, but we'll arrive!
