So this year I was on medication that made me hungry, tired, and lazy. I gained 20 pounds and I'm now 167. I have my fitness pal and I'm eating 1,400 calories a day and burning 500 through walking/running. What else should I be doing since I eat every three hours and I'm trying to cut out all sugary drinks especially juice. Any tips for weightloss/ motivation? I want to lose 25 pounds in 3 months.

My biggest suggestion is stay patient and don't rush it. 

For the longest time I got to work with a nutritionist.  Drink 80-100 oz of water a day.  In the beginning you will need to pee a lot, but over time you will get used to it.  Eat every three hours ( meal, snack, meal snack, meal, snack).  Always eat the right proportion sizes.   Also don't forget to mix weights with running.   

Is there's any particular trouble areas?  Lack cardio endurance? Don't like certain body parts? Etc. 

6 days of hard work 1 day of rest.  Don't over do it either or you will accomplish nothing.

Thank you for taking the time to reply :) I will definitely bump up the water intake. Right now it's a lack of cardio endurance, elliptical for example, and the trouble areas like my stomach and legs.

Try Mandy Ingber 's DVD Yogalosophy! It is an amazing workout but you are done in 30 min and see results immediately.

I also had the hardest time running until I downloaded the app Couch to 5K.

And stay patient! Oh...and throw away the scale!
