thats a choice. so really you should say "I've made the choice I don't want to be thin or fit"

its your body and your life, you are in control so in the end whatever the result, you chose that and did it to yourself. good luck.

Like others have said, it's basically up to you. Realize that you'll have good days and bad, ups and downs. As you continue to work out and eat healthy it'll get easier. But a bad meal, a bad day, even a bad week doesn't mean you need to give up forever. There's always time to get back on track again.

I just lost 16 lbs in about 8 weeks by eating healthy and exercising-but I was eating super healthy, and working out 5 days a week-and even doing 2 a days on 3-5 of those days (I had to make weight for a Navy weigh-in).

point is, it's work and it will always be work-there are days you'll have to stop yourself from eating stuff you shouldn't or days when you'll have to force yourself to work out when you'd rather not. The choice is yours, it's not easy, but it is worth it.

Take it one day at a time and know that just because you are not under your calorie count at will be ok. A friend of mine that was a body builder and personal trainer said it takes 90 days to create a habit and 3 days to break it. Do all you can to get those first 90 days in and go from there. Also, I am a diabetic and I know when my blood sugar is up I am not only hungry but I am hungry for sweet food. You may want to look into that or use your counter to see how many carbs you are taking in. The high end for a woman was somewhere between 40-45 carbs per meal, 10-12 per snack. Good luck.

Two days is a drop in the bucket of 365..... get back on it tomorrow! You can do it! It's the first day back that's the hardest, but you can do it. You're the only person standing in the way of what you want to accomplish! :)

Agree with the above!!! I accepted long ago that I will never be 'thin' BUT I, just like you, have all the power to make myself healthy and fit. You are going to have some off days when you feel like this and that is normal, we all do. You just have to jump back on it the next day and try to see what your pitfalls are to help those days be few and far between. Great change never happens overnight, but you can do this.
