Love your play with words using "negative committee"! How clever!
I used to post a list on the wall by the bed. When the alarm goes off to exercise, the light goes on, and I read my list of motivators. These items are the reasons I am committed to exercise. The list is long. By the time I review it each day, I can think of no excuses not to get up a little earlier than normal to exercise! I hope that idea can work for you.
Nicole Nichols compiled a list of "100 reasons to exercise now" with contributors from SP message boards. Worth reading if you can find it.
The main thing is to remember you are learning to think differently to get yourself moving.
Also be encouraged if you lose 1-2 pounds per week. It didn't come on fast, and it is not going away fast. Be steady, consistent, and keep reading and learning to make lifestyle changes.
You are not on a "diet". You are changing your habits and lifestyle. If it were easy, everyone would be doing it. Congratulate yourself for small changes and improvement. Seek support wherever you can find it - on this website, at Weight Watchers, at the local gym or YMCA, or with friends, family, or neighbors. If any of the latter are naysayers, just stay away from them.
Out of my six brothers, sisters, and my parents, I am the only one committed to daily exercise. At age 55, my health is better than many of theirs. I started working out daily 40 years ago. It was one of the best decisions I ever made.
Keep moving and don't give up!
