UPDATE! Potty Training Day 1 and I Already Want to Quit

I'm having the hardest time potty training my kid. She'll be three in September, and now that we finally settled into our new place, I can buckle down and get her potty trained.

Wrong! I already want to give up! She won't sit on the toilet for more than two seconds!! She also plays this annoying game, she says she wants to sit on the potty, we go into the bathroom, as soon as we set foot in the bathroom, she changes her mind. As soon as we leave the bathroom, she wants to sit on the potty, then back in the bathroom, she doesn't want to sit on the potty. This continues for a few minutes and I hate it.

I've hidden the diapers and I'm set on potty training this week. Any encouragement and advice for me? I'm so lost!

UPDATE!
She was scared of going on the toilet! After five accidents, and her yelling and crying that she can't do it, she peed in the toilet! We did a happy dance, shouted I can do it! And then I gave her a cookie. Since then, she's been back to her normal self, and wants to sit on the potty for a few minutes at a time!

I see the silver lining. :)

And thank you everyone for the advice and encouragement.

Right now she's running around naked because she wants a diaper back on.

She may not be ready yet. Make the potty available to her to sit on whenever she's ready. She will get it.

She's been sitting on it sporadically since last year. We put her on the potty when she asks.

Quoting mom2ljh:

She may not be ready yet. Make the potty available to her to sit on whenever she's ready. She will get it.

Doesn't sound like she is ready.
