Aw, thanks. I'm not really an angry dog in a pink bunny suit.

Never mind. What's the other one.
Back when I was heavy, my legs would stiffen up when walking two miles. I was putting MSM lotion on the front of the knee, but when I finished walking I found it painful to go up the two front steps to the house. That's when I remembered an old rehab exercise, toe drops, ( think that's what they're called).
The exercise I do is shown from 5:40 through 6:20 on this video:
I don't do 20, I just do 10 reps left foot, 10 reps right foot, and 10 reps both feet together.
What it does, once you get used to the exercise, is stretch the back of your thigh, calf, and the bottom of your foot. After doing this fast, easy exercise for a few weeks, the front my knees didn't hurt after walking two miles. Apparently walking stresses the back of the leg as much as the front, and gently working the leg like this strengthens the back of the leg and makes it more flexible. Once I got used to it, it became a nice relaxing exercise that I actually found pleasurable.

Have you any friend circle? If yes than you can try to do exercise through games, which can also help you to build interest on fitness and exercise like jumping on a trampoline. A study carried out by NASA found that 10 minutes bouncing on a trampoline is a better cardiovascular workout than 33 minutes of running.

I walk about one and a half miles a day in a wild area near my house, not for the exercise but because I enjoy being out there. There are two ponds with turtles and fish that I feed. Although the area is overrun with ligustrum and Japanese Honeysuckle, there is also a pretty decent variety of native plants that are in bloom this time of year.
The point is that if exercise is a chore you won't do it regularly and eventually you'll just stop. You have to do something that you enjoy doing in its own right like tennis or golf or hiking.
