Getting motivated (help wanted AND needed!)

I just read about peertrainer.com in people mag. At this point in my life, any help is welcomed :-) as of today, May 17 (2 days before my 35th b-day), I just weighted myself - 218 lbs (and I’m only 5'6) Seems like high-time to do something about it!
I have a great, top-notch elliptical machine at home (as well as a set of weights) – the problem is I never use them! I live in Marin County, California so I have hundreds (thousands?) of hiking trails right outside my door (and the weather is great all year round). All I need is motivation!

Are you in a group or team? I know motivation is ONE of the hardest things to do. What I try to do is get it out of the way first thing in the morning so I know that I don't want to EAT AWAY everything I worked so hard for. Maybe you could break out your elliptical for 15 minutes three times a day or even 2 10 minute routines. Whatever you do, make sure you do something, walking, elliptical or your weights. You can do this :-)

well your on a great start your here.. is your log public so we can help see what your doing?

I have been on pt for two months and I have lost 17 pounds. I lost 165 before I joined pt. I know how easy it is to slack and not want to move, but your doing this for you. you want to live a healthier longer life. I too am 35 and now Im 203 pounds. Im 58 pounds from reaching goal. we can do this together.

you have a great machine at home use it! thats why you came here to lose weight. use your resources you have available. eat well balanced meals with focus being fruit and plenty of veg. lean meats. stay away from all the refined carbohydrates that dont feel you up like white breads and pasta would be My advice. try some new vegetables. experiement with this new lifestyle change.

My username is lynneta if I can help in any way let Me know

new to PT

I'm new to PT and I am also new to trying to communicate in a group. I need pointers on how to communicate with the members of my group, possibly starting a group with my friends. I feel like I'm talking to a void. When I get the hang of the computer part of this I wil need motivation to keep with a healthy eating plan and to restart an exercise plan. I would like to encourage others and feel a little more personally connected to those I'm working with.

People Magazine

I also read the People magazine and said "well, if it worked for her why not try it" so today is my first day. I hope this is the most I ever weigh !

getting & staying motivated

I just started on May 16 after noticing the article in people. I 'm sure I have lost several hundred pounds over the years which seem to slowly come back. My concern is to stabilize at a healthy weight and stay there.

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:
