"Some people don't like exercise."
Then don't exercise. Find an activity you love, and do it. I commute by bike, and my normal round-trip burns about a thousand calories. I switched to triathlon last year, so I no longer go for 6-hour bike rides on the weekends, but those rides would burn thousands of calories. But that's not why I did it. I did it because I love riding a bike.
These "truths" shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. We live very cushy lives. We have remote controls that allow us to watch television for hours without ever moving. We "dial" a telephone number by puching buttons. Even typing this on a computer's keyboard is using less energy than typing it on a manual typewriter would have used.
So you can whine about life being hard, or you can rejoice in how easy our lives are and pledge to challenge yourself to keep your body fit.
