You've done the first great thing, which is reaching out for help
Some other things that come to mind are:
Find something you enjoy, like walking the dog. going for a walk, joining a local sports league (badminton, etc). If you enjoy it, you'll look forward to doing it :)
Try to remember how working out makes you feel, and what health benefits you noticed.
Try to find a workout schedule that is as convenient as possible for you. For example, if you want to join a gym, try to find one that is close to your home or your office, and map out a given time when it'll be easy for you to work out (eg: first thing in the morning)
See if there's someone who would like to work out with you - like a friend, family member or a Sparker in your area. Or even see if there are workout routines you can do with the kids, like a walk in the park.
Read Spark success stories and motivational articles
Set up a SparkStreak for working out.
Reward yourself (with something healthy and/or fun !) for every milestone you reach, whether it's weight loss (every 5lbs lost) or a fitness challenge (eg: being able to hold a plank for 2 minutes)
Join a Spark Challenge, like a Couch to 5K program, and interact with others doing the same program. Together you can cheer each other on !
Hope this helps, and I hope that you'll find even more fun and interesting ways to stay active
