I've had that same problem, it's called "Deep denial". At my heaviest I was still very active and in decent shape, but at the same time morbidly obese only I would never have acknowledged it. Starting a diet is the hardest part, actually the first 4-6 weeks are the hardest. It slowly gets easier after that. So I would say commit to it for the next 3-4 weeks, don't let yourself cheat and pretty soon it will come easier. One other thing you might want to watch is your calorie pie chart here on fitday. I found that my calories were like 75-80% carbs, but when I knock that down to 40% carbs, I can keep my calories higher and still lose weight.
