Its never too late to start being healthy. Just realize you aren't 20 anymore. Guard against injury by choosing low impact exercises like walking or swimming. (I have a knee that had surgery and I can't take the pounding of jogging but I really like the elliptical machine.) I am also a big believer in resitance or weight training. Again start light so you don't injure yourself. Weight training will actually make your bones stronger (countering osteoporosis) as well as your muscles. Cut 500 calories off your maintenance and the weight will come off at a steady pace. As your fitness level increases you can intensify your workouts.
