Making Excuses to Avoid Exercising?

I'm embarrassed to exercise around others.
This is especially true among the overweight — and those who go to a health club. Choose a "like-bodied" exercise class or gym and work out with friends for support.

I don't have the time. The goal is 30 minutes daily. But it can be several 10- to 15-minute sessions. Use exercise time to read mail on a stationary bike or make phone calls while walking.
