The way you looked naked in a full length mirror would be motivation enough I would think.
Yeah you would think.... but if that were the case I wouldn't be 240.lbs

Wild, I'm a diabetic and eating has taken on a whole new dimension since I was diagnosed. My insulin made me gain about 15 pounds, after I'd lost around 40 when I first started trying to get my blood sugar controlled. Now I'm back to trying to make good choices, one step at a time. I need to do more exercising but here I am at the keyboard.

I know where you're coming from about the mirrors! If it were only that easy!

But, what is working for me is one right choice at a time. If my self-talk is encouraging and positive and forgiving, I get along a lot better than if I say "there's no way you're going to lose weight, you know you can't resist potato chips..." I've lost 8 pounds in about 8 weeks...slow, but it's real. I still eat potato chips on occasion, but I just get back on track instead of beating myself up. It's a struggle and I don't think there's anything easy about it but I do give myself credit for these small successes which is changing my attitude about even exercising. We cleaned off the clutter from the treadmill last weekend...getting closer to actually plugging it in!

The Canadian Diabetes Association has excellent recipes on their website. I am not diabetic but I have made a few of their recipes, good stuff.

Waresbear, that's really a good idea. I've got lots of diabetic recipe books and Adkins recipes and the thing I've learned is that I have to control my carb intake or else it's not going to work. There's research out there that shows that the controlled carb, adequate protein diets actually work better in some ways than the low fat low calorie diets. The other thing that seems to be important is to include some sugar if you're craving sweets, and some good fats (nuts, olive oil, flax oil, fish oil supplements). To fake out our bodies with artificial sweeteners just makes us crave 'real' sugar or carbs even worse, and a truly low fat diet isn't as satisfying as one with the right amount of good fats. So, I try to eat like what was "on Noah's ark" - if it is fresh and non-processed, it's a better choice for me.

And the neuroprogramming helps to keep us on the right track long enough to see the results, which in turn is its own reward.

Well, ideally, you want to eat more protein than carbs and all carbs should be in the form of whole grains. My husband is a sweet tooth kinda guy so I fake him out with cinnamon, gives the illusion of sweetness but no sugar there. I bake with organic honey & cinnamon, & yes those nuts. Another good recipe website is the Canadian Heart & Stroke foundation. Sorry for all the Canadian references, since my tax dollars are funding this I tend to use it, lol.

Even though I know very little about nutrition and metabolism, I wouldn't actually agree that it's not about eating less (if you are in fact over eating) but I would never suggest anyone try eating too little.

Understand portion size, the different kinds of fats, carbs and sugars is very important. And understanding these things, I think would be very empowering.
To be learning as you go, always improving and evolving your ideas on healthy body and healthy mind I think would go a long way -and your research into neuro-science is definitely a good sign that you're apt at self education and enjoy it!

Maybe try adjusting one thing at a time? Maybe read up about sleep patterns effects on weight loss and the best time of day for exercise (there are different times where your body gets more out of the process than at others like, exercising at night before bed is a little like flogging a dead horse. It might make you feel better but in the long run counts for very little) and then set a goal with your new found knowledge like 'Ok so this first week, I'm going to focus on getting my energy levels up so I'm going to be in bed by 10.30pm and rise early for a short walk'.

ALL OF THIS BEING SAID: I am also over weight, so I really shouldn't be trying to give advice to anyone. But if you do decide to do this, I'd love if we could have a little journal type thread where people could post up things like :

Today I ate: <Insert food here>
Today I: <Insert exercise here>
Total Weight Loss to date: 0.1lbs (I completely don't understand pounds so I have no idea if that number means anything hehehe)
Comments: <Thoughts on if they're starting to have more energy/diet is making them lethargic and thus wouldn't recommend it etc.>

Even though I could see that this may make some people uncomfortable posting their results up, but it might prove to be a good inspiration/educational to other members and give the poster something to look forward to to tell people their progress and what does/does not work.

Now I'm rambling, my apologies!

Weight loss calculation is as follows 3500 calories = one pound of weight. Simple as that, so if you want to lose a pound you need to lop off 3500 calories somewhere & exercise. The more you exercise, the more muscle you build, the more you increase your metabolism. Which means you speed up your fat burning machine. Reason why we gain weight more easily as we age is because we are no longer growing & we are losing muscle mass so our metabolism slows down. So unfortunately or fortunately (however you chose to look at it), you have to exercise to build that muscle back up.
So, I have a very athletic body, in fact I have a body better than most people 1/2 my age. Today I ate:
Big bowl of oatmeal & raspberries.
Whole wheat muffin with heart & stroke foundation approved margarine
Whole wheat turkey sandwich with soycheese & hummus
Mediterrian salad
Big bowl of pea soup
2 apples
1 orange
& later when I get home from work I will probably have a few whole grain crackers & hummus.
Drinks, I just had about 4 coffees with cream & lots of water

1 hour of cardio, full on heartrate boosting, plyometric & kickboxing, power yoga cool down.

I honestly don't mean to sound like I disagree with you but, I was always under the impression that an adult female should eat around 1800-2100 calories at maximum per day, wouldn't lopping off 3500 calories mean you're not eating anything?
Or am I thinking of something else? :(

EDIT : Has just occurred to me that you may have not meant per day! Whoops!

Depends on what you want to weigh & how much you are exercising. Obviously a person wanting to lose a few pounds can't lose it one day, would be over the course of a week or longer. A person eating high caloric foods in the course of a day, say around 5000 calories (remember one tub of ice cream would put you up there) could lose a pound a day just by cutting out that & other such foods.
