Moderate exercise - 30 mins a day of running, skipping or steps should be enough (but this would probably get boring after a while, so you might want to look into swimming/gymn work, too.)
Drink a reasonable amount of water - 2 litres is good for most people.
Watch the sodium - don't cut it all out, but make sure you're keeping within the limits.
Reasonable calorie deficit - 500-750 per week is good. This will result in a weight loss of 1lb-1.5lb a week. A very healthy weight loss. You can use this to help you work it out (if you're 21 or under, if you're older, google for an adult verion): http://www.bcm.edu/cnrc/healthyeatin...eatingCal.html
Lift weighs to maintain your muscle mass.
You can't spot reduce.

Apparently we digest more when we sleep so sleep eat smallish portions and exercise even if it's just up and down stairs or walking to the tv to change the channel or maybe join the gym/ swim what ever you like. Maybe gain a hobby for the activity you start or increase in moderation what ever activity your doing now, don't push your self until it hurts but make sure you feel a difference. Happier or healthier

Going to take a wild stab in the dark and say: Exersise more + eat less.
But ya' know, could just be me being an idiot here.

I think Protein Shakes could help you as well, but I'm not too sure about that.
