I know how you feel! What I would suggest doing is finding your support here, there are a lot of people here, on SparkPeople, who also need support or just want to be there for those of us that need it. Become someone's friend and talk with them about your goals and it will help you stay motivated, you will feel accountable if you tell someone that are going to get in your exercise (but you have to be honest about whether or not you do!). Look through the success stories and find inspiration! You can even follow them to keep you motivated.
Spend time with your son, by going walking with him (he could ride a bike or scooter), just a short walk at first, then add a little more to it each day. Remember, it takes time to make changes and don't get discouraged when you don't have instant results (in real life we can't lose weight like they do on the Biggest Loser!).
Use the site to log food and exercise- it will help you too! Just remember to be honest with yourself :) And challenges like the 10 Minutes of Daily Exercise will help you continue on your way. Take a look at how far you've come- you have 559 spark points, keep up the good work!
It doesn't matter how slow you go, you're still lapping everybody on the couch.
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
