Red face Fat and New

Good afternoon everyone!!!
I am new to this site and absolutely love it already! I am 29 and a mother of 2 and a wife....and fat! I have decided to lose the weight and have started by drinking water which is something I never really did unless I had to before. I am drinking 2-3 liters a day and only allow myself 1 Diet Pepsi a day which surprisingly hasnt been difficult. I am really trying to watch what I eat and have started to snack on fruits instead of salty fattening treats. I have purchased a podomiter(?) and exercise DVD and 4lb ankle weights but I have not gotten myself to use them yet. Dont know why just cant seem to get to that point yet.. I live in the northern midwest (Iowa) and it is really cold here still, so I havent made it outside to walk either. It seems like I dont have anytime to do any of it. I work in town (20 miles) full time. leave the house at 630am and am home at 430pm to a waiting 10 yr old. I have to take my son to the sitters in the morning and pick him up and rush home to my daughter who is home alone after school. My husband works overtime before and after work so it is up to me and when I get home I have to make supper, homework help and baths and after that all I want to do is go to bed. I keep telling myself I will get up in the AM to do a walk or DVD but havent yet.... I really need to make myself do it but I also dont want anyone around to watch me do an exercise DVD. I would love to join a gym but the closest one is 20-25 miles away and back in town and the last thing I want to do is drive back into town after I get home. Let me know if any of you know any motivating tips to help me get on the next step towards losing my weight.

Thanks
