You need some new hobbies to replace your eating hobby. Anything to distract you from eating.
Although exercise can help a bit for weight loss, dieting is more effective than exercise.
To avoid regaining lost weight you must not lose any more than 10 lbs a month. After you reach your target weight you need to go on a maintenance diet for the rest of your life.
Supper needs to be abolished as supper calories are even more fattening than dinner calories as you don't burn them up with most of the day behind you. Breakfast calories are the least fattening followed by lunch calories as you burn them up with most of the day ahead of you.
It is probably better not to have any snacks as they are all extra calories. Very low calorie snacks such as raw fruit are OK but not dried fruit as that can be fattening in large amounts.
Reducing your intake of fats and calories will help but your calorie intake should never drop below 1,200 calories per day if you want to be healthy.
Reducing your intake of junk sugar will help. Foods or drinks such as coke and other soft drinks, desserts, sweets, cakes, cookies or biscuits must be eliminated or substantially reduced. Cereals must be restricted to those that contain less than 15% total sugars and junk sugar loaded foods such as pizzas must be avoided. Junk sugar bowls must be abolished. Oatmeal, oat bran, wheat bran and wheat germ are good cereals that can help for weight loss.
Junk sugar health hazards are discussed in a web search for "sugar health hazards".
The natural sugars in fruit and vegetables are OK as they metabolise to glucose slowly due to their high fiber content so they have a low to medium GI value. Fruit and vegetables are low in calories and are not fattening. Most fruit and vegetables are metabolism boosting foods and that helps for weight loss. Potatoes and sweet potatoes are exceptions and can be fattening.
Very high fiber foods such as wheat germ and wheat bran can also help for weight loss.
Fattening combinations that you need to avoid include combinations of protein foods (such as eggs, meat, poultry, sea food, cheese and nuts) with starchy carbohydrates (such as bread, cereals, pasta, rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes and corn).
Take every possiblity to move around, even in tiny ways. Studies show fidgety people are generally skinnier.
Add red pepper flakes for a pantry. When eaten early within the day, red pepper lowers the number of food you'll eat later.
Identify the emotional triggers that lead you to seek unhealthy comfort food. Picture your goal weight so when a trigger strikes to allow you to resist temptation.

Well work out as much as possible. It only takes 20-30 mins to get in a good workout.
Eat eggs in the morning...I read in my husbands health magazine that eggs fill you up and prevents you from getting hungry again until lunch time. (if you have a Costco near you buy egg beaters - they are much healthier and easy to make - no shells)
Bring healthy snacks with you wherever you go. You should be eating every couple hours (small portions just to get you by until your next snack) apple slices, baby carrots, 100 calorie packets of cookies, chips, nuts (pecans or walnuts), drink lots of water, V8 juice, soup, granola bars, raw veggies (cooked veggies take out all the nutrients). Cut out as much sugar from your diet as possible.
And for those sweet cravings eat dark chocolate there are antioxidants in dark chocolate and has been known to lower high blood pressure.
