I am not crazy about doing a lot of exercise either but for me it's all about getting started. I find that if I focus on how good I feel when I'm finished walking I am more apt to get up and go!

Thank you all for your replies. I don't like the "hurting" feeling from working out or my heart beat going higher (because it feels like I'm dying) but that's what a work out is for right (and I should feel alive but oh well)
I'm sticking to the program but I just would like to work out and know that when I get to my weight goal I will not stop working out and need to lose weight again and again like I've been going throw so far.
I have the Dance Central on xbox that it's so far the one I like the most. I already do Tai Chi and Training work out with Fitness Evolved. The thing is the fight I need to have every time I wanna do them (mon/wed/fri) for 30 min because my husband got his account back with xbox and plays all day and doesn't let me even get close to it. I was dancing around 1 hour, 2 times a week. Now I'm sticking to treadmill 30 min (tue/thu/sat) and when he doesn't let me do my Training Cardio I do a 10 min cardio from the sparkpeople videos.
I would like to say thanks again for all the replies and I think I know what I need to do, the problem now its get into an agreement with my hubby so I can get a chance to use the gaming system as well.

I can do it! You can do it! We can do it!

I know exactly what you mean, I went through the same thing. I would always walk because I enjoyed it and it was easy and I hated exercise, but it was a little boring. But I was always thinking I have to walk because I know it's good for me but I don't really want to do it. But then I saw Hip Hop Abs on a infomercial and ordered it and fell in love. I've always loved dancing and then I realized it is an exercise, especially if you do it long enough and often enough. Now I have Just Dance on the Wii and I love them both. Find something you like to do and it will be easier to do and not look at as an exercise. I know it's a struggle but keep searching until you find something you love.

Sheylangel, I'm just like you. I do NOT enjoy being sweaty, out of breath... I was able to push myself to exercise with a short-term goal (my son's wedding) and doing it for others (helping with the girls' running club at school), but exercising just for myself? not happening! I do enjoy bicycling on weekends with my husband.
Let's keep striving!

what I started to do was use the stability ball-looked like a beached whale at first! but anyhow it was great because i WATCHED tv DOING IT. i ACTUALLY LIKED THE PAIN! made me feel like I did accomplish what I had to. Once weather was better became much easier to work out, doing simple chores, like walking, cbing hills, we live in the country-be creative!

I know we not suppose to have a sedentary life, we need to work out and the best way its doing something we like. The thing is - I like to sit down in front of the computer after taking care of my house and kid. I do work out because it's healthier for me, it's gonna make my body looks better.. but it is a fight I need to do it and drag myself to do it. I don't like the pain while doing it.. I don't like the sore body after working out.. I think it is a "no pain no gain" not that its really hurting me but it is a discomfort. I wonder what would be the best step to take because I know if I don't find something that I enjoy and do because I can't live without I will end up stop working out after get the body I want and keep going back and forth with it.

I can do it! You can do it! We can do it!
