I honestly don't care if I am fat or not. there's nothing that can motivate me... Not a boy or my peers or even the risk of death. I don't know what else I should do to give myself motivation!

Couple of motivations I use. One, my family has a history of cardiovascular diseases and I worry that my children will be unhealthy smuts. Two, I used to get injured a lot and sick and once I started working out even if it was two or three times a week it'd work. Three, eating unhealthy crap makes you sluggish and I don't like that feeling. I like using survival of the fittest mindset and think I need to be fit to outrun bad situations.
Oh biggest motivation back then was anime and cartoons. I wanted to be like goku and other characters and I watched a lot of sport cartoons1

I'm a lazy bum but lost a little over 30 lbs so far. I use the myfitnesspal app to eat 1200 calories, and exercise everyday for 30 minutes (walk while holding weights flailing my arms back and forth, or just do dumb aerobics during commercials while watching tv) These are the things that motivate me to keep going:
-looking at before and after pics online for inspiration
-seeing outfits that would look so cute if only I were thinner (I want to be able to look pretty in a sweater, a-line skirt, and tights with cats on them)
-thinking how much prettier I'd feel if I were thin
-looking in the mirror like wow I'm actually starting to look cute, and the side stomach flab is gone
-buy something cute in a smaller size so you have a goal to fit in that shirt
-setting a realistic timeline, like "I want to be this weight by the time classes start"
-think of it like a fresh start for a new wardrobe and it would be cool to return to classes and look like a new person
-have a non-scale way of measuring progress like clothes starting to fit better, tape measuring, and muscles growing (like my arms actually have muscles now and I can beat my sister arm wrestling now Lol)
-people, particularly guys which is kinda sad, seem to treat me nicer and notice me more. it's weird, but maybe it's because I look more confident too, I don't know
-a guy turned me down so the next time he sees me I'll be hot and like "u missed ur chance, go die in a ditch"1
