Ariana has it right. You got to start somewhere. I am in a similar boat. I have had problems with blood flow in brain, I quit smoking and had a craniotomy to assist the blood flow. So, you can guess that I packed on some pounds but I have to be careful not to overdo it or I get headaches or feel tingles on my right side.
If you are really that embarrassed, perhaps you can march in place to start. Get up while you watch tv and stretch. I think movement encourages more movement and the hard part is just getting up! Remind yourself you are exercising to help improve your body and to keep your spirits up. Which is why I would suggest walking outside. Get some music or an audiobook.
Health issues can be a real downer. Just as you had to be patient with your recovery, you need to cut yourself a break when it comes to losing weight. Personally, I don't have muchatience in that arena, I get frustrated, give up, then it's back to hiking my thigh up and getting back on the horse.
Best of luck to you!
