Nancy......any positive change you make can only help you. The fact that you started some exercise is a great beginning! Just stick with it and try to add a little more as you go along if you can. Even a minute or two more exercise can really make a difference.
If nothing ever changes in your house you still need to take care of "you". I realize eating well can be expensive but there are always ways to spend less and eat better. You are worth it and you deserve to feel good. Eating better quality food should be one of your priorities before serious illness really does set in. In some cases by then it is way too late. Take baby steps and change just one thing per week. One improvement a week can be very beneficial for you and may impact your finances less severely.
I'm sure you will figure out a plan that will work for you. Take care!
