Welcome aboard Veronica and good on you for wanting to make healthy changes in your life.
Weight loss can be a very daunting process and at times can seem near impossible. There is no race in this game, it is slow and steady that seems to work for most (in the long term I mean).
To reduce it being so daunting, you can always make gradual changes. For example if you don't eat breakfast, start eating a healthy breakfast. If you have take away for dinner, just start by changing that for a healthy dinner. If your morning tea is cake, swap it for fruit or a muslie bar etc. I think so many people (myself included for most of my life!) get in the mindset of wanting the weight off right NOW but the reality is that you don't get fat overnight so you sure as hell won't get thin overnight (bummer hey?!) so just be kind to yourself and there is nothing wrong with easing into the changes. Motivation is always high to start with but tends to go away as time goes on, so just remember that if you're feeling deprived and want to binge, then allow yourself to just be on maintainence meals/calories for a week or even a month if that's what you need. Far better than piling the weight back on.
My biggest recommendation is to find physical activities that you enjoy. This is especially useful if you do have a binge here and there because at least you're burning some of those calories off.
