There's an old joke -- "I bought an exercise bike last year and I haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to use it." That's pretty much not a joke in my house but more of a reality.
We did buy an exercise bike last year and for a while I rode it religiously every day. And even enjoyed the sense of accomplishment I got. Then I slacked off. Now it is a giant monstrosity of a dust collector in my living room.
I suppose with me tipping the scales around 300 pounds I should make that a resolution for the new year. Get back on the bike.
