Key point: it took a while to get to this point, it will take a while to get back to a good weight
Another key note, just like snowboarding start small and progress.
Give up soda if you drink it, especially anything DIET. That stuff is so bad for you. Keep a eating log, write down everything you eat and when, seriously for 1 week. You can then look to see what and when you are eating and you can then adjust your diet.
You don't need to run at first. Nothing wrong with starting with a 10 minute walk. Then 20 minutes, then 30, you get the idea and walking is free. Once you build some stamina increase the speed and/or terrain. Find a park with a hill, walk up the hill a few times, if you can jog it, if possible run/sprint it once or twice.
Not sure if you used to train or your background but I think a good all body work out 3 times a week on a machine type weight system would do you well. It will work your chest, back, arms, legs and abs.
All your big muscle groups, IE core muscles.
If you have the means, see if someone can recommend a trainer or dietitian with a sports background.
It can be done and just a guess but I would think that a goal of 15lbs and strengthening of your core wold be a good 6 month goal getting you close to this years season start, depending where you live. Our season doesn't start till Dec barring a huge dump.
back in the gym myself after a long break
