I know what I would do if I was in your shoes.

#1 I would start walking each and every day. Whatever it takes, just do it. 5, minutes, 10 minutes, 20 minutes, you gotta pay some dues -- check with your doc first of course.

#3 During that ninety days I would investigate the DASH diet for long term health. Google it.

Good luck.
