Answer:

someone told me you could lose weight by not eating anything after 8pm at night.

apparently, we snack too much too late at night, which contributes to the extra weight.

Answer:

You need to find something to tie the reason for losing weight to. Is it an outfit you want to get into? An event you want to attend? A love interest you want to impress or just something you want to prove to yourself? Make it about that and not about losing the weight.

It's easier to get motivated when you can find a tangible reason why you want something to happen.
