If you hate exercising, there is a way to change that feeling, and SiriusXM host Jenny Hutt shares with The Doctors how she reshaped her relationship with fitness and lost 80 pounds!

Jenny says when she embarked on her fitness journey, she struggled at first. "Sometimes when I would get on the treadmill and I would cry. I was so angry that I would have to exercise that I would sometimes cry and scream," she says.

She then began to educate herself about how moving your body more may improve the health of your brain (Find out why this is particularly important for seniors). Jenny says she realized that exercise and fitness were not about what she ate, how much she weighed, or what the scale said and started thinking more about how her fitness could benefit her brain chemistry. 

The radio host started small at first, with the goal of just moving every day. She then upped her goal to 10,00 steps a day, which she says, "changed her life" and changed her perspective on movement. 

Some days she takes an hour-long walk to get her steps and other days she accumulates her steps around the house or with activities like taking her dogs out to play. 

Eventually, she got to the point where she "craved movement" and tells The Doctors when she was able to separate her movement from diet and exercise, it was her "magic" moment. "If that can happen to me, I know it can happen to you," she says to viewers out there struggling to get moving.

If you still need some motivation tips to help you on your fitness journey, find out why getting yourself a new pair of shoes, paying yourself to exercise, preparing to work out the night before -- and 4 more tricks can help you stay motivated to move!

Also, Jenny is right, the scale often has nothing to do with how successful your workouts are. Find out how looser clothes, a boost to your endurance, craving sugar less are all signs your exercise is improving your health regardless of the number on the scale is not dropping.
