For example you may go running and run very fast and cover a long distance. The next day you are exhausted, your body hurts and you take a long time to recover. In the end you don’t end up going to run/exercise again. Doing this causes an injury as well. 

Take it easy. Don't burn all your energy on day one. Try to understand that losing weight or becoming fit is a long-term processes and takes time. Have time-bound goals that are not impossible to achieve.

Try different forms of exercises to keep you motivated. Maybe go to the gym, try yoga, Zumba, go for a trekk try cycling try. If you you are getting bored switch your exercise. Only if you enjoy the exercise you will become fit. 

  1. Exercise Buddies 

Sometimes exercising alone can feel boring. Have an exercise buddy. So whenever you feel like skipping a workout your friend will motivate you. Even during exercise your friend will motivate you and you will enjoy the work out. 

Be consistent with your exercises. Start small and keep increasing the intensity of your exercise. Respect your body. If you feel your body hurts take a break. When you are lazy to do another form of exercise that excites you. At the end of the day you must try to include one form of physical activity in a day. Ask yourself what did i do today. If the answer is nothing, then at least go out for a walk.

If you respect your body and take care of it it will take care of you.
