I got this idea from a blackdragon blog podcast:
Put up a big banner on your bathroom mirror saying in big letters "I've [accomplished whatever goal] and this is true as of [date]" and don't worry about what your friends think if you ever have them over.. They're average people anyway I'm guessing? Or you can take the thing down while they're over if you want, but outcome independence (keeping that banner up there) is best for you.
You don't forget about your goal so easily when those big letters are constantly staring at you, looking important.
You eat an elephant one bite at a time. Baby steps, dude.
You need to accept yourself for who you are no matter what your situation. If you were a friend or relative of yours, would you talk to yourself that way? Perhaps try writing down any negative thoughts that come to mind and come back to them later and realize how irrational they are, so change them to something positive.
I really know the feeling, man. Been trying to lose weight, beat AA and generally turn my life around for a LONG time. Always made excuses, always gave up.
Hell, check my post history. I came into this community THREE YEARS ago making an attempt and failed. Sure, a lot of crazy shit happened to me, but I could have still tried something, like sticking to a decent diet, which I did not.
So here I am again. There are no easy answers, and many of them are easier said than done. But we are in an awesome place here with awesome people. Things slowly change if you take slow steps.
This time around, I have made more progress than I ever have. My AA is practically gone and I didn't even use a program, it just kind of went away as I got older and as the weight started to come off and I was taking care of shit I needed to and feeling like more of a man.
Handle your shit, try to stick with it the best you can and honestly, the accountability partner idea sounds real good.

I didn't think the "Get Hung" guide would have girls eyeing my bulge. It did.
I didn't think that your exercise and diet advice would have girls checking me out. It did.
I DEFINITELY didn't think that your hair-loss prevention would fix my hairline. Not in a billion years. It mother fucking did. You saved me a crazy amount of time, a ton of money, unnecessary pain, and destroyed my #1 source of anxiety. DESTROYED IT.
Kratom is next!
