Your Insight to What Can Jump Start a Person Out of a Hopeless State

I have sputtered down into a rather listless scary hopeless state. I have depression which I am being treated for. My question... What has gotten you up or moving ahead when in the darkest pit? I am taking things about 1 hr at a time right now and was doing conventional things as best I could like exercise and spiritual things, but it is like a watch that has stopped. I guess I want to know what has helped you, no matter how tangential it may seem. I appreciate your time and responses. (I suspect there may have been other links on MeFi over the years on this as this is the human condition and I apologize in advance if it seems like I have been to lazy to look. It has taken me 1 hr to even compose this question.)

Motivational Books, Essays, Tidbits on Going to the Gym

Looking for books that will encourage me to go to the gym. I am making it once a week, sometimes twice. I am okay with memoirs or fitness books. Your own stories or tidbits of advice are helpful, too. Bill Phillips _Transformation_ has a useful chapter as does his older book _Body for Life_. Luckily I work in a library and am the location now. Sooooo, your thoughts, and I will look on the shelves. I have great books on home on what exercises to do, just not things on getting me up and running. (The 30 pounds of fat are getting to me.). BTW, Happy Holidays.
