this is a common misconception. my wife struggled with this for most of her life. she finally put some real effort into exercising about 18 months ago and she's lost like 40 lbs. same thing with her sister as well.
some people seem to think, "hey, i'm on my feet at work most of the day" and they count that as exercise. or they go for a run once every two weeks or something like that.
if you want to lose weight, you must do exercises that elevate your heartrate to a training level for 30 minutes or more at least three or four times a week. this will make you hungry and you will likely eat more. that's okay. just eat healthy foods when you're hungry and you'll be just fine.
I don't want to lose weight. I mean, in context it was that I'm not a skinny anorectic.
Nor am I an athletic type, my body simply doesn't look like that. I have a woman's classical pearshaped ass and overall a "soft" look. I could lose a few kilos, and it'd be great, but I'm not fat.
I'm not on a diet. I have never dieted in my life.
Wrong, once. I ditched it fast, as utterly stupid.
I agree on the training thing.
