I friend of mine, ACE, spent the last two years changing her life. She lost ~80 pounds in doing it, and she looks fabulous. She did it by changing her diet and finding an exercise program that she loved. Something she became almost addicted to - barre3. A combination of ballet, yoga and Pilates.
I believe that part of my problem is my lack of LOVE for exercise. I haven't found something I enjoy so much that I want to do it everyday, instead of need to do it. I like walking. The scenery is pretty and the walking is easy. Just put one foot in front of the other. But I don't get the joy out of it like I would hope. So I'm going to try something new, and I bet ACE is going to be happy to hear it :)
barre3 has a program called 28 to Great. 6 online workouts a week for 4 weeks. The workouts range from 10 to 60 minutes. And access to it is only $15 a month. 50 cents a day to try something that I might fall in love with. So as soon as I get paid, I'm signing up. And in a little over a month, we'll see how far I've come. Who knows... Maybe I'll get hooked like ACE. :)
