Hey, welcome to HCM.

Congratualtions on being able to cut down your weight from 155 to 136. Requires a great motivation and will power to do so. Being said this, the greatest motivator of one is one's self. Everytime you go up and look into the mirror tell your self I am healthier than yesterday. No matter how you feel, say it aloud 5 times a day... slowly you'll start believing it.

Set realistic goals to lose weight. Set realistic goals to reduce inches from your body. Achieve it. Measure and weigh fortnightly and reward yourself.
Buy yourself a dress that is tight for you now, and resolve to fit in it in say, 1 month and work towards it.
Keep a friend and a family member to motivate you.

Hope it helped.
