Could Our Inactivity Epidemic Be Due to Exercise's Dismal Effect on Weight?

If people's primary reason for exercising is weight loss, and if exercise doesn't effect major changes to weight, could it follow that the reason so few of us regularly exercise is because we can't stop banging the exercise is the ticket to the weight loss express drum, and people quit when discouraged by their lack of loss?

Though there's not a great deal of research on this directly, preliminary work by ConscienHealth's Ted Kyle certainly supports the idea's possibility.
