Everyone on here is rooting for you! Just look at the before and after pictures and look at how much happier you look and I'm guessing you feel better too. Everyday is tough AND depending on what made you eat a lot to begin with maybe do some inner soul searching and overhaul the inner you as well? That's just a suggestion to maybe help get the motivation back but you look amazing and you can do it!!!
