How to get fit/change my life for the better

I was born chubby and haven't really stopped being chubby. I'm loveable and cuddly, and don't dislike myself, but I'm terribly unfit. I can remember halcyon days in my late teens when a stint at Weight Watchers left me slim, fit and also mentally tip-top. That lasted for maybe three years, before food caught up with me.
So here are the real questions: Bearing in mind I'm a sedentary person, how can I change so I become fit? How can I stop feeling down whenever I think about exercise? How can fitness become natural to me? How can I change the habits of a lifetime?
I'd love to hear stories from people who have gone from zero to hero in this way—from fatty to thinny, from slob to fit. How did you solve the problem?
Advice from natural born fit people is welcome, but maybe isn't that valuable in this instance.
