You first need to loose some weight follow a diet plan and start little bit of exercise gradually increasing your pace from 15 mins/day to 45mins /day.
For raised triglycerides u should avoid taking sweet foods and sugar completely,
use only 3tsp of oil /day per person in the household
introduce omega-3 fats in your diet - sources of omega 3 are walnuts. flaxseeds etc

Incorporate healthy changes in your lifestyle and you would notice d changes
