Do You Really Want To Be Fat Or Thin?

Are you a person who can lose weight… AND successfully keep it off? The Thin Test will tell you just that. When you answer these questions be honest with yourself! For example, there may have been one time in the last month that you couldn't find a close parking space, but if you generally park as close as you can, then answer "Always, or most of the time". At the end of the test, you can see what your responses mean.
