The next thing though is choose exercises that you enjoy, because if you consider it torture, you're obviously not going to continue to do it. Think about what you like. Do you like to be in groups? If so, maybe you try a Zumba class or a step aerobics class or even a spinning class. Do you like being outside? Then go for a long walk.
You can work exercise into your day. When you're at work you can go out for lunch and take a walk with your colleagues. Take the stairs, park further away, these are small ways to build exercise into your daily routine. Great exercise's to help lose weight, also involve building muscle. If you're able to go to a gym and learn how to use weights and build muscle, that's great because throughout the day, your body will actually be burning more calories, as you rebuild your muscle. In the end any type of exercise is good to help lose weight. Try to get your heart rate up, try to build muscle, but most importantly make sure you enjoy it.
