Dear Goggabie
To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss' , ‘The right approach' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). If you are not motivated to lose weight and make lifestyle changes, then try contacting Innertalk (mands@innertalk.co.za) and ask about their motivational tapes which may help you to stay focussed.
Good luck
