What cardio exercises/machines would you recommend to someone who really, really

I'm a 29 year old female, 5'1" and 144 pounds as of my weigh-in this morning. After repeatedly falling off the exercise/diet wagon, I'm on my first week of the Eat to Live diet, and so far I've been following it 90% of the time. I really want to lose at least 20 pounds.
I know I need a boost in the exercise department. I go to Planet Fitness and I love using the weight machines. However, I think I'm not pushing myself enough. I'm sweating after a session, but it's marginal compared to other people I see. I also have this dislike of cardio (I guess because it's too reminiscent of gym class back in the day.)
How can I effectively mix up my routine to make sure I'm getting a comprehensive workout? How can I push myself to go that extra mile, as it were, without a coach or trainer, all the more so when I hate treadmills and their ilk?
