Starting your fitness and exercise regimen is the hardest part of losing weight. No one really likes to exercise until they really get into an activity that they enjoy. Then, exercise can be just as addicting as chocolate! The trick is finding activities that you enjoy.
If you are obese and have movement problems, ask your doctor about special exercises you can do while you are losing weight from your improved eating habits. Once you are at a weight that allows you to move freely, try walking, biking, or low impact aerobics.
For those who are simply overweight, just get out there and find something that you enjoy. Hope on your old bike and find a beautiful bike path. Take a long walk through a city park. Run around your block, then run around two blocks – build from there. Strap on your rollerblades and cruise around your neighborhood.
