How can I keep up the momentum/energy to diet and exercise now?

I have lost about 10lbs recently and got back into running which helps me physically and mentally.
I wanted to lose the weight for a do we are going to tomorrow night, so have been very focussed and determined.

So, I would ideally like to lose at least another 10lbs, possibly a stone. How can I motivate myself to keep at it once my big goal has gone?

I always do this, am a yo-yo dieter extraordinaire, I want to be slim for life, but know that that takes a lot of effort.

Help!

How about joining a running club or entering some races to keep you focused.

Or book a weekend away in 2 months time - and aim for that with the weight loss

Well done!

Hi Racmac, yes, that is what I did last year, I did the Manchester 10km which kept me focussed. Then I just got bored with running and started work and the weight piled on!

I do need a goal, or something to work towards, then I need to maintain it!

Hmm, weekend away sounds good.....
