Pyschological tricks

I really need to start exercising everyday again. My best bet is DDR. Does anyone have any tricks for tricking themselves into doing things you don't want to do everyday? I've tried the calandar trick, the bribing myself trick, the "I'm not allowed to do *fun thing* until *important thing* is done" trick. Anything else I might try?

Also any other excerise suggestions are also welcome.

DDR is still fun for me, but since I've lost my muscles my joints give out earlier than I would like. I don't know how to get back into shape when I can't play for as long as I would like.

EDIT: acutally it's the fac that I'm overweight that makes my joints hate me. grrr.... catch 22.
