I have stopped seeing my primary doc at the moment, to be honest, because I really think there's a strong conflict of interest on him pushing the hospital's weight loss diet thing on me so hard, including surgery options. I know I haven't lost weight at the rate he wants, but... I dunno. At the end of the day I know I need to do something, but something felt inherently wrong about the process he was proposing. I last saw him about 5-6 weeks ago.
Words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth.

One of the biggest things that helps me exercise is to just do it while I'm watching Netflix. I will throw on an episode of Buffy or something and stretch while I watch it. I used to beat myself up over not stretching enough and then complaining in the gym when I didn't have the hip flexibility I wanted. The time flies by if you are keeping yourself otherwise engaged.
Seriously, even just standing up or moving around for a bit while you watch tv will be helpful. If you want to get ambitious you can grab some free weights (I like kettlebells, but I wouldn't recommend them without first going to a class and getting help using them) and do that while you hang out.
Focus on your diet, get a dietitian or a nutritionist to help you with a meal plan (this is not as expensive as it sounds), and stick to that meal plan. Even with that meal plan in place, don't try and fix your diet over night. If you've been existing on a high sugar, high fat diet, you can't just start eating kale for every meal. Your body will reject it. Start introducing healthy foods in to your diet one at a time, replacing a non health alternative in your diet today. As an example, when I was fixing my diet, I started doing really small things like introducing spinach in to my diet by getting spinach on a Subway for dinner. Now I eat the crap out of spinach in salads, sandwiches, etc.
