In brief: 0.5 to 1 lb a week
If you cut 500 calories each day you will lose one pound/week.
Keep a food log, this is a good website: http://www.Livestrong.Com/thedailyplate/. Exercise 3 times a week for 30-40 minutes. Drink water when you are hungry to curb cravings and before each meal to control portion sizes. Eat whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Get 8 hours of sleep, sleep deprivation leads to weight gain.

In brief: Diet and Exercise
The goal is to burn more calories than you consume.
Watch your diet; eliminate junk food and don't over-eat. Consider liquids as well; soda, alcohol, etc. Contains lots of calories. Exercise multiple times a week. If you find an activity you really enjoy you'll be more likely to engage in that activity. Avoid fad diets that could prevent you from getting adequate nutrition. Make healthy choices!
