welcome to healthcaremgic
the eagerness in you to get life back is the starting point of loosing weight
first of all be under physician;care and your all your medical ailments should be strictly under control and that' the 2nd step
you will have to get 3 sessions of 20 mts each and best is to practice fast walking as exercise part
4thly get a diet cahart of 1800 Kcalories and strictly follow it no temptations should allow to take extra food
all your work outs exercises should be guided by your treating doctor's advice as you are having all the ailments including ht failure
hope you be all right soon

General & Family Physician Dr. Khaleel Ahmed.Manik's  Response
Crash dietingA crash diet refers to willful nutritional restriction (except water) for more than 12 waking hours. The desired result is to have the body burn fat for energy with the goal of losing a significant amount of weight in a short time. There is a possibility of muscle loss, depending on the approach used.[clarification needed] Crash dieting can be dangerous to health and this method of weight loss is not recommended by medical doctors.
Crash dieting is not the same as intermittent fasting, in which the individual periodically abstains from food (e.g., every other day).
but this has to b done along with strict monitoring of all ur other ailments.otherwise u may land up in complications.
