Dislike of Exercise



I have a huge repulsion for exercise. I do not like the loss of breath, the sore muscles, and I hate to sweat!

I hate exercise but I know it helps with Depression. My doctors have even told me to exercise but I can't bring myself to do it. By exercising I would be better able to deal with my Depression and I really want that, yet I can't do it.

I want to be healthy, fit, beautiful, and successful, yet I continue to put off exercising. Why? Why can't I just make myself exercise?

This is something I do not understand about myself. There seems to be an internal tug-of-war between my repulsion for exercise, and the want to be healthy. At the current moment, there is a stallmate. Each side is equal in strength. I need to find a way to break the stallmate and override the repulsion for exercise. I just don't know how to do that.
