You need a "why". Why do you need/want to lose weight? That will provide some motivation.

Eighty to ninety percent of weight loss is how you eat. The rest is how you work out and your genetics. For both, you need to change your habits. Making eating well (I hate the phrase "eating clean") and exercise a habit will get your further than motivation (and it may even take care of itself).

Hello, thank you very much for your advice. I'll take care of my diet and try to get back into sport.
 
Hello Nanou the best way to lose weight is to set your mind to the goal. Next is to find the best program that is suitable for you and work hard to achieve it. That's all I can share and good luck!!!

The way to lose weight and being healthy is 70% nutrition and 30% exercise.This percentage can vary but more or less, eating habit is the key.

I often lose motivate, so I set myself a specific goal and try to fulfill it even without motivation. Be sure to consult your doctor

I agree with toupeemoor that you need the right mind-set. For me the first thing I do is get a waist trainer or lower belly shapewear because if gets me in the mood of desiring the new shape and I don’t have to be forced. On exercises, you don’t need to start hard on yourself with weight training because you’ll give up too soon. A cardio workout involving jumping jacks, squats, push ups, lateral shuffles stretches and so on will burn tons of calories.

A good idea on dieting is to keep a diary of everything you’re taking per day, to make an estimate of how many calories you’re consuming and an idea of which foods have the high calories. You also need to drink lots of water.

While cardio (including high intensity interval training, or HIIT) can burn calories and fat, strength training is one of the best ways to transform your body, and I wish women in general would embrace it and get over this idea that they're going to bulk up if they lift heavy (it won't happen). It has so many benefits.

And also? If you're going to work out, please don't do it for some aesthetic goal. Vanity will only get you so far. Do it for your long-term health, to feel better in your body. If you're a parent to young children, do it to set an example for them. If you're a grandparent, do it for your grandchildren.

Where to find motivation? I understand I need to lose some lbs but can't start doing anything. By the way, who has used Xenical? Is it effective? I read a lot about this medication and I think it's worth a try. Where to buy it? What is the most reliable online pharmacy?

What's your "why"? Does it still serve you? If it doesn't, find out what your new one is.

That said, don't rely on motivation alone. Make working out and eating well (not "clean") habitual. If you need to habit track, do that. If you need to work out with someone, do that. If you need to meal plan, do that. If you need to block out time on your calendar to work out, do that.
