There are no short cuts, unfortunately, and I don't know what you tried in the past, so it's hard to point you in the right direction (I might end up pointing you in the same direction...)
However, there are no secrets. Diet means watching calories in, restricting junk foods, eating sensible portion sizes, and substituting "good" for "bad" food choices.
Exercise means months of hard work, and that is what most people are tripped up by - it doesn't happen fast, especially with a problem like yours where you're focused on one area. that's very common, but it's very difficult to beat, and you need to really work with discipline AND patience for quite a while.
You're looking at 4 to 6 days a week of mostly cardio work (but weight work 2 days a week), lasting 45 to 60 minutes. The most important thing is to develop fitness - if you're getting fitter, you'll see the rest of the change happen as a consequence of this, so that should really be the focus. So my advice is to find a "performance" goal, maybe running 10km, or cycling 50km, something like that, and then work at it from that direction, because focus on specific areas is super difficult to achieve.
