hello welcome to healthcare magic,
daily walking for 30 mins is good to start with.If possible walk in gardens ,beaches,or in a joggers park,avoid going to the gym because natural walking we can change the pace according to the body need and is less mechanical and more exhilarating.
Try yoga asanas and will be very benificial for you.
take care

try some excersises like cycling by hands&lift some heavy wt in home only, along with meditation with taking food rich in green leaf vegs,which not only detoxify your liver but ovral calories will be reduced until you abel to walk fast.
