What keeps me going? Lots of choices. I have several walking routes mapped out for work and home. I have several (and I mean several) work out DVDs ranging from Yoga to the Biggest Loser "Last Chance Workout" and lots of other stuff in between.
I have Wii Fit that My son and I like to do together. We are both a little competitive. We also play tennis at the local school and ride bikes.
The more choices you have available the easier it is to find something to keep you going when you don't feel like working out. It all about options.

I'm serious sure I'm full of cliches but honestly, the more you procrastinate, the more of a mountain you make out of a mole hill. Don't be afraid, but please do check with your doc to make sure it's a safe option of begin a workout regimen. Also, you don't have to start big! Do what you can, that's a personal motto of mine. I know I can't run 5-miles, so instead I do a lot of stepping and climbing stairs instead.
It's not a complicated decision to decide to be healthy! You don't need fancy equipment or even a gym membership. I started doing Zumba on my own, with a few youtube videos and a positive attitude. You can do steps by climbing a flight of stairs for 10 minutes or strength training in front of the TV
