    Hello Dodge,

    The most import thing is to trust yourself, believe you can do it:)

    As long as exercise goes I can give you some tips: when you feel that motivation is going away just think about the results (health and look) you can obtain if you do it, start with mini-goals such as using stairs instead of the elevator, go for a walk a few times a week,...
    About the fatty foods and saying no: well, you can say yes but just a few times (e.g. you can start by allowing yourself a small treat everyday; sometimes it can be a tiny cupcake or a serving of crisps). Also, whenever you feel hungry drink two cups of water then wait 10 minutes; if you still fell hungry eat something otherwise you were just thirsty. And one last thing: don't bring fatty foods at home - out of sight is the best ;)

    Good luck!
