I'm in the same condition and know what you're talking about. I would also like to find my earlier motivation.
Good luck to you.

Finding motivation is hard, one of the keys is you need to change your lifestyle not diet. One of the things you said is your thankful that you aren't gaining weight just maintaining, but you have 80 lbs to lose, you've obviously be gaining. You don't gain weight overnight and you can't lose weight overnight. You need to start cooking and eating healthier and smaller portions not as part of a diet to lose weight but as a lifestyle change. You need to find a way to incorporate exercise into your life as part of your daily activities maybe a walk after dinner or right after you wake up... something you do everyday so it becomes a routine. Don't worry so much about losing weight but about being healthier because weightloss is slow and if your only doing this to see the scale drop you will become quickly discouraged.

9:07- thanks I needed to hear that. I have been at it for a month and being VERY strict, and I havent lost a lb!! My clothes fit much better, but not one pound come on!! i work out 5-6 days a week, circuit train for a half and hour and then run for another half hour. I was eating ~ 900 cals a day but have brought that back up to 1200. (My original online diet (WebMD) wasnt set for an active person) i have 30 lbs to lose. Seriously thinking of going on phentermine.

9:43, unless you are a tiny person, for as active as you are, you are eating too little. You're body thinks it's starving and is trying to hold onto every ounce that it can. I know it seems counter intuitive, but you have to feed your metabolism to get it to burn. Up your calores to at least 1500 and you may find you can eat more than that and still lose weight at a reasonable rate of around a pound a week. Also try to spread those calories out during the day eating about every 3 hours. And it won't happen overnight, you've got to give your body time to adjust.
