Change your mind set
Instead of thinking of hibernating like a bear, think of being a catepillar and emerging from your cocoon come spring and being a butterfly.
This is your chance to emerge from winter sweaters and be more graceful and thin come spring.
Plus normally in the winter we burn more calories just keeping our body core temps up, so when you pair that with exercise and clean eating, the results can magnify. I know last year, I lost the majority of my weight Jan - April, and stalled come May & June with the warmer temps. (Broken ankle in mid August didn't help anything either, but alas)
Can you start a group fitness class?
I find the group fitness classes (Zumba, jazzercise) really easy to attend in the winter months, more so over taking a walk outside when it's 30 degrees out. However, I also challenged myself to walk for 10 minutes a day this past December. Simply brute force of making myself take a walk, and some days I did stop after the 10 minutes, other days I went on and did 20 or 30 minutes.
If you work out of the home, maybe swing by the mall after work and take a quick circuit of the mall, inside, warm temps, you can start thinking about the new clothes you'll need to buy once you've lost some weight.
I literally keep a picture of a butterfly on my fridge, so whenever I see that picture, I can refocus on my goal of emerging come spring.
Best of luck
