On this note. I recently decided to start trying to get back in shape. Covid, as well as pivoting to working a sit-down job, caused me to fall into a VERY sedentary lifestyle. I gained a lot of weight.

I recently started making changes. Choosing better food and portion control was first and foremost. Then I started tracking steps, and making sure I hit 10k each day. I won't be running any 5ks anytime soon, but its a start. Most importantly, I do it every day. Haven't lost a ton of weight yet, but my energy levels and body feel so much better already. Anyway, that's my novel. Anyone can do it!

Congratulations. Lifestyle changes are the most important.

Well done man!

I’ve also been trying to get healthy again, I’ve been doing a light amount of exercise and yoga every day for a little while now. I don’t look any different but I feel my age and not 10 years older

Portion size is one of the most important things to focus on. Meal contents change but ur portions should be consistent. Happy for u!

If you do want to eventually run a 5k, check out the Couch to 5k program/app. I've successfully used it reach 5k and I know several other people who've had success with it. If you keep with it, you'll get to where you can run 5k. There's also a friendly community at /r/c25k to share encouragement and successes.
