Exercise is key, but start slow. If your level of fitness is low, just start with a 20 minute walk. Try to keep a pace that let's you break a light sweat. When you can do 30 minutes at the same pace without breaking a sweat, join a gym.
As far as diets go, they are not easy. Weight watchers is a healthy eating plan. Most people want fast results, but often they are short lived because the plan is not sustainable, Also get some support from a friend or family member to help on this journey. Let your friends and family know you are doing this and that you want them to support you, not to say stuff like "let's go get a pizza".
