My entire life having people tell me that I was 'too fat', or I would be so pretty if I just lost a few pounds. I have realized that this has to be for ME, and not because everyone else wants me to, or because it would make THEM feel better! Now I am focusing on me, and am finally succeeding!

No matter what, never beat yourself up about something you've eaten. Ever. Doing so will pull you into a negative cycle of self abuse. You've eaten it, for whatever reason, whatever it was it's done and you can't change that. But what you can do is change your reaction to having eaten it. Rather than beat yourself up, be compassionate with yourself and that will get you into a more positive state of mind so you can move on.
I workout at home a lot and my way of getting my workouts in is to just commit to the first 5 minutes. Even if you dont feel like it just tell yourself "Im only doing 5 minutes and if I still doing feel like working out I'll turn it off" Every time that I've done that I end up doing the whole video. Once you get through the warm up section time just flies by because you're having fun. :)
