I suggest finding other reasons to do what you're doing. Find other reasons besides fat loss/weight loss to eat better and be active. The more reasons you have and the more your reasons mean to you, the more motivation you will have and keep.
Find your WHYs. When you know WHY you're doing this, it'll be easier to keep going.
don't trust the scale. It tells you things that aren't necessarily true. If you lose inches, you're losing fat no matter what the scale says.
Remember to do some strength training 2-3 times per week - don't let all your exercise be cardio.
