Zero Motivation to Get Healthy

I'm fat and I know it. I know it's not healthy, and I'm not proud of it. I'm not going to go on a campaign saying "It's OK to be fat". Trying to figure out why I'm in a rut, I came to the conclusion I have zero motivation. I will look back on a few times I lost a bunch of weight -

  • Summer 2010 - summer during college, I had a lot of free time since I was only taking 2 classes and not working. I watched The Biggest Loser a lot (which I guess isn't actually that ethical of a show). I ran a lot that summer and ran a 5K race. 
  • Summer 2013 - I was in a new town and didn't have a lot of friends. Also my girlfriend of 4 years and I broke up, so I started running to take my mind off things. I also met a girl who I was trying to impress, so I kept running to lose weight. 
  • Summer 2015 - I was super depressed from my crappy job and didn't have an appetite (not healthy). I barely at anything.

So 2 summers of healthy weight loss, and 1 summer of very unhealthy weight loss. I had two summers of motivation and now I have none. I know being over weight is going to lead to health problems down the road, yet, I still don't seem to care.

I need to get over this mental block and/or find some motivation, and start losing weight.
