TEEN HELP - Making the best out of the worse

Hi, I'm Jacqueline. I have a question, how do you remain motivated to lose weight... when it is just you? I am aware that I need to lose a lot of weight and it will take time but the reason I made this account is because everyone needs help with accountability with weight loss. Exercise, moderation and making the best out of what you have at the house (if you're a teen losing weight on your own). But I'm 17 years old. I'll be heading off to Job Corps soon and I wonder if anyone has any tips for eating and motivation for exercise before I actually have the opportunity live on my own. It would be really cool, if someone would reply to this. Thanks

I compete with myself

I'm in my 30s and live alone, no bf right now or diet buddy. I get through it by competing with myself... Make a game of it. I take my BMR and my calories burned and then try to be 200 calories under that every day. Every day that I stick to my plan I get one treat... whether it is a show on hulu, an internet date (don't do THAT at 17), or a 30 min nap in the sun.

The other thing I do is use the peertrainer system as my anonymous diary... and actually write what is going on in my life with it. It makes it one of my vices instead of an extra task.

Hi Jacqueline - What helps me is to set daily or weekly challenges. For example, one day I will tell myself I will drink at least 8-10 glasses of water. Maybe one week I will tell myself I will get 210 mins of cardio in for the week (average 30min/day). My daily challenge right now is to eat one salad (or meal that is only vegetables) and fruit everyday. Those seem to help me rather than focusing on the scale. Good luck!

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
