I totally agree with strength training! While you might not notice much of a difference on the scales, you'll soon notice a difference in your body shape!
At least half an hour of cardio a day, and strength training a few times a week.
Cut down on salt and sugar, and switch from full-fat to skim milk. Grill or steam your food, eat chilli (speeds up the metabolism). If you have to have soft drinks/sodas then change to the diet variety.
I tell my personal training clients to keep a food diary. Writing down everything you eat, then looking back at the end of the week can be a nasty wake-up call for some people.
You don't need to spend a fortune on home exercise gear. A good pair of running/cross training shoes (get these professionally fitted somewhere like Footlocker, where they'll analyse your running style to see if you pronate or supinate and suggest appropriate shoes), a skipping rope, a couple of resistance bands and some dumbells and you're pretty much on your way. I'd also suggest swapping your computer chair for a Swiss ball. You'll be working your abs just sitting up straight.
Hope that helps, PM me if you have any more questions...
