I know my obesity is caused by high calories, bad fats, refined sugars, etc. But mostly lack of exercise as that has caused my metabolism to basically die. While watching HSN last night (they were selling a piece of exercise equipment at a great price) I thought about ordering it but stopped. They kept saying how FUN it was. Well, honestly, pain is not what I call fun.
When you are this out of shape or unfit, it only takes a few seconds before I start 'feeling the burn'. Even 5 minutes of this burning pain is not something I can easily deal with on a daily basis.
I have tried everything I can find and none of it is fun. Actually, none of it is even bearable. I don't know how people do it everyday. I just find it almost impossible to make myself do something everyday that I dislike so much I consider torture. Oh, I can make myself do anything for a while. But I need to do this everyday or almost everyday for the rest of my life. I lost 50 lbs in 2011 to gain it all back in 2012 mainly because I lack the muscle to burn calories. So to maintain, I have to keep watching every bite or else. It is hard enough to eat right. But exercise if my greatest challenge.
I guess I am a big wimp. I just wonder if there are others like me that have such a hard time with this issue.
