I understand your situation very well. I am facing a similar situation. Advices are easy to give but to follow is difficult. So I will tell you the ones that I have tried but result in very slow gradual weight loss. Fat starts burning only after 20 minutes of work out (swimming, walk, jogging,outdoor games), I the first 20 minutes of exercise don't burn fat. Only after 20 min whatever you do starts burning weight. So always minus those 20 minutes from your exercise time. Change your exercise everyday. Make a plan say 2 days a week walk, 2 days jog, 2 days play badminton, tennis, cycling, etc.. Combine these exercises with stretches, push ups, crunches and yoga. Don't starve and take lots of fluids. Remember weight will gain in the first 10 days by 1 kg so don't be upset. Be consistent and you will see weight slowly but gradually reducing after 10-15 days.

I am overweight too. I plan to go to the gym by next week. But I guess, one of the most effective way to lose weight is to cut on carbohydrates and pair it with exercise. Good morning.
