If you want to stick with exercise, then you've gotta find something you ENJOY DOING. For me, that's riding my road or mountain bike. Either one. Long as I get in 10-12 miles daily, plus a longer 30-50 mile ride on Sunday mornings, I feel GOOD all week. Just wear a helmet, and watch out for SUV driving cell phone talkers...they can run you OVER, not EVEN be aware. I also wear a heart rate monitor, as it gives excellent feedback. To wit: I burn 700-800 calories on those daily rides, and up to 3,000 calories on those long Sunday a.m. rides.
