like bicycling, tennis, swimming...do you have an activity you actually like to do? if it's swimming, then i'd suggest doing that once a week for a month, then doing it twice a week, and so on so forth to build up momentum and to train yourself into going to a gym for exercise. If it's something you like, you're more incline to do it more often.
Then because you have back pain, i'd suggest getting involved in yoga. It's a great way to stretch and relieve pressure on your back and other aches PLUS you can do it at home. between these two items, it will start you to thinking about exercise and will get you into a habit of doing these things. Then you can start adding other work outs or exercises.
i think it's hard to start cold turkey so starting with something you like to do is always easiest.
