You gotta work into it. If you fit in a good quality exercise most days, even just 40 minutes of exercise will actually give you good gains while being healthy exercise. I don't consider super strenuous exercise to be that good for you, like stuff that maxes your heart rate in specific. Running is a pretty good bang for your buck exercise, BUT most people get injuries after running consistently for a few weeks. I'd say a pretty balanced program is to focus on lifting weights half your exercise sessions each week and spend the other half of your week focusing on cardio related exercises. But yeah, weight lifting and cardio is pretty good bang for your buck exercise. The thing is is that it gets boring for a lot of people after a while. It's important to mix it up with exercise you actually find interesting and enjoy doing. Indoor rock climbing/bouldering is a fun place to start if you want to try something fresh.

Excellent advice, Sniping. I would only add two things. First, walking is probably one of the best forms of regular exercise because it is relatively safe, can be varied as fitness improves (speed, incline, duration), and it burns calories (not a lot but it doesnít wear you out , so it is repeatable). And second, donít forget diet. Ultimately, weight loss is a function of CICO or calories in calories out.
Both exercise and a good diet require consistency to show results, so your last point is so good. Find a diet and an activity that suits you and you are more likely to stick to it.
