shenash, along with what Pam said (and I notice Pam did not tell you to pick out some new clothes, though that works...sorry, Pam, couldn't resist, because I've been in the same boat), it may be helpful to join a thread, like the 7-Day-Motivational Thread in the Women's Corner section or the Lose 10% by July 4, or Friday Weigh In, or 100+ Pounds to Lose (if that fits). Somehow connecting with a group of regulars is very motivating. Good luck, and welcome!
