There is lots of advice here. Anyone commenting here a doctor? There are lots of different ways to lose weight, some healthy, some not. There are many many factors that need to be looked at: age, height, current weight, any other health problems (diabetes, heart issues, high blood pressure, etc), foods you currently eat, any allergies to anything including the foods you eat (if you know them), the time you eat, how much you eat of what type of food and the list continues.
It is very important to speak to someone who can guide you through this process who has the education, experience and knowledge on this topic. Listening to others and their experiences are very beneficial but they are not you with your specific body type, age, metabolism, food sensitivities, etc.
My recommendation is to speak to someone who has the education, degrees and proven experience on this road. Most important is that you don't go down this road by yourself. Make sure you have someone support you on this because it can get very hard at times to stick with your program and you may need someone to talk to when the going gets tuff.
If you have any questions, you can PM me and good luck. Remember, slow and steady wins the race, not fast. These are going to be life long/lifestyle changes and they take time.
