Hi ya Scotty,
Always remember the simple math- calories in vs calories out.
Put simply, you need to eat less calories than what your resting metabolic rate dictates you should be eating. According to my weight, height and age, my body requires 2300 calories to remain at my current weight. So I've cut that in half, and now my body is using fat as fuel.
I know exercise works, and I'd be an idiot to not recommend you do it, but what you put in your mouth is the most important thing! I hate exercise, I try to do a walk maybe once a week but I'm losing an average of 1.3kg a week.
I guess the thing is you need to do something you can be positive you can stick to. If someone told me to lose weight I would need to exercise five times a week, I'd tell them to forget it!
Best of luck mate.
