Hi - and welcome to the forum.
What exactly do you want to be "motivated" to do? Are you considering doing a diet regime or just getting more exercise in the future?
When you have decided what it is that you want to do now then we can support and help you but it seems that you haven't really got a definite idea at all at the mo.
Will keep in touch to see how things are going, In the meantime - take care, we are all ready to help when you let us know what it is you are trying to do....:)

Well done for not gaining over the winter...it's the hardest time in my opinion. Probably would help if you know what your eating style is like. Do you like a very prescriptive and a strict regime and want to loose weight quickly or do you prefer a more natural approach. Walking is great and really helps to maintain losses and tone up, not loosing muscle mass...but there is the "eat less" bit too unfortunately! Whatever path you choose keep posting, the support here is great!
Good luck!

I', also new to all this and pit on a good heap of weight with my son. I was also a single mother and i think all that stress just adds to feeling generally a bit crappy and just over/comfort eating. I'm going down the road of lipotrim, quick fix that i'm hoping will boost me into action. This is my first time ever dieting but have the support at home and my friend is starting too. The best of luck on chosing your route and use your baba to boost you when you feel a bit down. It'll all be worth it in the end :)

Hi and welcome. Are you wanting to go to a slimming class/group? If not might be worth joining as a way to get hold of the newest books.

Then you could start a diary thread in the section on here for support

I do weight watchers online on my own with the support of the online forums and the app I'm loving it! This has to come from within you...if you do it with someone you let their bad habits affect you too I find! Good luck with whatever you choose
I did ww years ago an was modestly successful on it but got tired of counting points. But I know that I have to keep track, cals or points. But I do remember losing almost 20lb in a few month, too
