There are several things you must do to achieve a lifestyle change. First, to me it seems that you haven't found something you enjoy doing. You need to find an activity you like that will give you a good workout. If you don't like what you are doing, you will not stick with that activity. Give it some serious thought - find something to do that you can truly say you enjoy - dancing, walking, yoga etc.

You also have to force yourself in the beginning. Making the exercise schedules are great, but they are ultimately useless if you can't stick to them. So the first two weeks you will have to use your willpower to force yourself. Perhaps you can try to exercise with a friend daily. Think of it as time for you and your friend to catch up on things. You will both depend on each other and won't want to disappoint one another, right? Or maybe try on some clothes you like that are tight. Seeing how you look in it everyday may inspire you to become active right away. Try doing something of this sort. Eventually, if you can start working out daily for two weeks to a month it may start to become habit. It will feel weird not to exercise.

Losing weight, real simple. Got me from 110kg to 80kg and still slightly flabby.

Weight gain = 90% food and 10% exercise.
Get in shape = 10% food and 90% exercise

Put it this way:
1 meat pie = 2000kJ
100g of raspberry bullets = 1900kJ
1 big mac = 1200kJ
100gm cashews = 1900kJ
100gm apple = 80 kJ

5 minutes on treadmill running at 12kmph = 100kJ

Dietry intake for men = 5500kJ (approx)

Now research has shown that the exercise levels of the past generations and now has actually increased, yet we are still becoming larger as a nation (for Aus and US and a few other countries) so the blame shifts to the access of food that is high energy and our over indulgence of it.

As for the motivation part. I just take the fre morning train and leave no money in my bank account. It forces me to get up at 5am. And since there is nothing to do when I arrive in the city at 6am, I smash out some gym for a bit then head off to work. Getting out of bed is the hard bit, once your out, your out. Do it for a month and after that you actually feel crap for not going to gym.

P.S. Rock climbing is awesome, you don't want to fall so you just hang on and persevere. Very highly recommended workout. Also try martial arts, when someone is beating the shit through you last thing you want to do it say I'm tired, same thing you just push yourself.

Sorry if my methods are extreme but I am an absolute lazy guy and only harsh stuff ever works on me. :)

Good luck!
