Focus on the amount you eat, and balancing the four food groups properly. If you don't have time to go to the gym, make sure you take into account how active you actually are when planning how many calories you can have in a day. You don't have to work out for 3 hours a day, just realize that you will have to eat less than people who do!
And try to make exercise a family thing. Go on bike rides or walks together, or find activities, like swimming or skating that the family can enjoy while everyone is moving! This way you are multi-tasking: getting exercise and family time together!
Try consulting a doctor or dietician for advice on how your unique situation will affect what you should be eating. Once it becomes a habit to eat properly, you'll start to see results!
