Its a shame exercise is such a chore for you, that will make it harder to stick with it in the long run for sure. The key is finding something fun you enjoy doing that will keep you active. I am fortunate that I really love exercise and its a big part of my day. I feel so good when I can exercise and move. I had to find things I liked to do. I love the water and how it supports my joints so I really got into water exercise classes -they are high energy with upbeat music and won't put stress on painful joints. If you like dancing at all, a Zumba class would be just the ticket. They have something called Zumba gold which is intended as a low impact, easier to follow routine for seniors. There are even special classes for people with arthritis. Exercising in a group allows you to interact with others and perhaps find an exercise buddy to keep you motivated. If you don't like a group there is always DVD's which you can get for free to try out at the library! You never know what you might like until you actually try it..
All the best with your goals!
