You already have gotten started again by being here and reaching out. Congratulations!! It is hard, but SO worth it.
You also already know what to do that you are asking about workouts. It is SO important to exercise. And I am sure you already know that if you work out, you will feel better. The working out helps your mind AND your body.
I agree that walking is a great start. I love to swim and it's easy on the joints. I also like the eliptical, which is not coincidentally easy on the joints. It's also good to do some weight training (even with 3-5 pound weights) as building muscle will help burn calories.
