If you think, “I’m discouraged by the weight I gained this holiday season,” remind yourself right now is the perfect time to get back on track and recommit yourself to healthy eating. It doesn’t matter what you did or didn’t eat over the past few weeks. What matters now is what you eat today and every day going forward.
How did I lose the weight? I stayed hungry. A lot. I ate broccoli when all I wanted was a damn brownie. I exercised even though I was tired, it was raining, or I just didn't feel like it.

In short : There is no trick or secret to getting fit - just a hell of a lot of hard work and heartache.
