If you can stand up, start by marching in place holding on to a chair. Do it for short periods of time to increase your strength and endurance. Purchase a pedometer to monitor your steps. It helps to motivate you. Do 1000 steps per hour or even 500. Spark has free chair videos posted.
Welcome to SP. I wish you the very best on your journey.

Everything you've ever wanted is one step out of your comfort zone.
The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison. Ann Wigmore
The real purpose of searching after facts is not so that we can manipulate the world to our advantage, but so that our own awareness can be transformed.

I am new to all of this, I have been small my whole life, last year I got really sick and am now on a life reg. of meds, I am on oxygen and my activity level is very low. I have gained close to 85lbs and It is killing me physically and emotionally. I am trying so hard but I am lost when it comes to how to maintain exercising and eating healthy!! I feel like a failure!!
