I would just go to the pool and play. When you feel like it, do some laps. Maybe over time, you will like doing laps, and slowly build it into an exercise routine. I would not try to force yourself to do laps. You may take something you love, and turn it into a chore, if you take a fun activity and associate it with work.
Even wading around in the pool is more exercise than sitting in front of your TV, so take it easy, and build up to laps, and then if you like it, increase the intensity. If you don't like swimming laps, just be active in the pool. I like pool volleyball. Even just running in place burns calories, and improves cardiovascular function. I used to do a lot more pool work, when I was over 300, because it helped with joint pain, but never did laps much, because it was crowded, and I didn't like it. Better to play pool volleyball, with all that jumping around than to try to swim laps, and quit because I hated it.
Whatever you decide, just get down to the pool, and move. That will be enough, and as you get fitter, you will do so with more energy.
