Try to make some "cardio-training" about 3 times a week and you will immediately see the results. (3 weeks) Cardio training are really easy (about 65% of your max pulse), will make you really fit and only needs one hour
Drink a lot! If you are targeting some weight loss you will have to evacuate a lot of things, drinking a lot is the best way to do it!
And finally, the best advice ever, give you a cheat day per week. This is really important, most of diets failed because people's motivation fluctuate. Be strong with yourself, allow you one REAL cheat day, and hold your diet.
Hope it helps .) And if you have any questions feel free to ask I learned all from others and I would be pleased to forward it to others also
I ran competitively and for pleasure for nearly 50 years, but had to stop when I kept having knee and foot injuries. After that I went several years without regular exercise; gained a bunch of weight, etc. Then I discovered cycling. Now I ride to work (9+ miles/15 km) three days a week. Cycling is much easier on aging bodies than running is, and I have found it just as pleasurable and even easier to stay in the cardio zone than when running. I no longer eat meat at all, and very little dairy or oil, and I limit my carbs. No snack foods. No sugar drinks. No potatoes, white bread or white rice. Lots of veggies, beans and tofu with some wild or brown rice or winter wheat pasta. At my age (nearly 60) I find I need a rest day between rides, but I'm happy with this regime and have lost about half the weight I gained.
