I have done well on my eating for 7 weeks now and am down 27 pounds from my starting weight of 335. My health seems better and I like the fact my double chin is disappearing and my size 24 pants are getting baggy. But I can't get myself to exercise -- not even walk a little bit or go on the treadmill. I have the treadmill set up with a fan and a TV, but nope, I just don't do it. I used to jog when I was a lot younger and enjoyed that. 10 years ago I joined a gym where it was mostly older people and those in physical therapy and I like it. I mentally and physically felt bad if I couldn't go. When I first moved to GA in 2005, my husband and I used to walk around the parking lot and I could see myself progressing by being able to walk faster and farther as time went on. Now I haven't exercised in nearly 2 years. Do you think I (we) have an underlying fight going on our heads that it's just easier to stay fat or a fear of being thin and someone different than we are now? I don't have any excuses to not exercise - so what's wrong with me?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
