Dear Violet
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 & Nutrition' at the top of this page, then on 'Healthy Diets' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increase your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). If as you say, you don't have time to go to a gym, then buy a skipping rope and start skipping every day. You can do this anywhere and at any time. Start skipping slowly and then increase how long and fast you skip as you lose weight and become more mobile.
Good luck
