Hello Amanda. I will help you. First we need to change your and your families eating habits. I recommend a couple of things. Do a search on YouTube or NetFlix, Bing, etc. for a documentary called, "Forks over Knives". Watch the whole thing, even if you think it might not be relevant during some parts. Secondly, start with some simple, 'casual' workouts and stretches for a few weeks. You have to start this process in steps. Go to my profile and Follow me so you can get daily updates on my healthy eating habits Thread. Look at the pics in my profile for some examples of meals that are not only healthy, but will give you more energy and are great for your family too, but don't worry if they aren't into it yet, they will be once they see the results over time. 

We will do this together and this is a great community for support and motivation! Looking forward to tracking your progress together!

Start slowly and build up. Start by changing your diet. Do not eat highly processed foods. Especially stay away from processed sugars and carbs (high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, dextrose, white bread, white rice, etc). Eat foods that are in their natural state (or close to it), like fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meats, and whole grains. Limit the dairy products. Start walking every day for thirty minutes. Build up to longer periods of time and slowly add speed. You do not need to lose 5 lbs a week; that is very unhealthy. Aim to lose 2 lbs per week, and only weigh yourself once a week. Make sure to weigh yourself before breakfast in the morning. Also, drink lots of water. Do not drink anything besides water. No soda, juice, or full-fat milk. Replace milk with almond milk if you like it. 
Hope this helps and God bless!

It is my pleasure! Also, you should start doing some strength training, because the muscle that you build will actually burn fat while you are resting and sleeping. When you are down to losing the last 20 pounds or so, you may want to start calorie counting, too, because that makes you aware of how much you should be eating every day.
