I just don't feel motivated at all. I don't know how to get the motivation I need to lose the weight I need to lose. I have so much stress in my life right now that I just don't know how I could possibly make myself motivated. I go to school full time, I have 2 children a 4 year old and 1 year old, I work part-time 24 hours a week, my step dad passed away right before Christmas and I've pretty much had to take care of my mother who is losing her mind. It's like I have no time for me. No time to just work out or time to cook healthy foods. Unless I just want to eat oatmeal, special K and turkey sandwiches all the time. My hubby works 60 hours a week. It's like there is no break in between the homework, the housework, and taking care of other people. I can't even take care of myself. How do you make time for yourself without making excuses?

Sorry to hear about your loss. Losing a parent is very hard no matter what age you are. I am also caring for my elderly mother and my sick husband while working a full time stressful job. So I understand where you at Kayhm.

Sometimes it is hard to focus on one self when you have so many people depending on you to take care of them. But you have to find time to take of you. I take one night a week and go out with friends or just by myself for a while if it is no more than an hour it helps.

You can check this thread for some ideas and suggestions given to me when I was in a similar place as you.
