Sonja, Mark's advice is really the best that anyone can offer. The main hint that I would add is to start making very small changes. For example, try doing stretches in your chair at night. Get a basic yoga video and use it for 10-15 minutes a day. When you are hungry, walk for 5-10 minutes and drink a glass of water. Do something with your hands. Don't watch TV while you sit; studies show that TV watchers gain weight. Instead, read, doodle, knit, use a crafts kit to make something. Take an online class...small changes add up.
PS don't focus on weight loss. Focus on health gain. Healthy habits will change your life and eventually weight goes.
