Treadmill or elliptical trainer?

I'm thinking of investing in an exercise machine in the coming weeks/months. I've tried to force myself to go for walks, but it just isn't happening, so I'm going to try the equipment to see if that will get me moving. (I'm not joining a gym... period. Been there, done that.)

So... I'm just wondering what people think...

Treadmill...

... or elliptical trainer?

Well, I have both, and I love them both hehe. Although I find that I push myself more on the elliptical, since even though I'm only 29, I've been morbidly obese since I was 5-6 years old. (But now I'm only 'obese', not morbidly anymore yay!!) My knees are suffered abuse over the years and the elliptical is gentle on them. BUT the treadmill is SO versatile.. you can do so many things with it, as demonstrated on some biggest loser episodes. I found that I was happy enough with a lower quality elliptical (that still works fine) but I need a high quality treadmill, especially at the weight that I started at.So that's what I did, but I hope to upgrade my elliptical to a fancy shmancy one someday :)
