In brief: Work hard
Losing weight is a major challenge.
You can limit your calories (all diets do this despite variations -the problem is sticking to them), increase your exercise - join a gym, walk 3-6 miles per day, walk up stairs instead of using elevators. Dietary alteration including elimination of high caloric stuff (don't buy them so they are not handy in your kitchen). Good luck.

In brief: Re-think food
You must learn to look at a bowl of green beans or an apple and think how wonderful, delicious, fresh, natural, healthy, pure, and tasty.
You must un-learn the brainwashing of major media and learn to look at a cheeseburger, pizza, fries, chips and see oil, grease, sickness, lard, lard, fat, unhealthy, cholesterol, death, unhappy. In short, eat healthy, change mindset....And exercise some also.
