I agree with PP +Switch to whole grains if you have not already, choose leaner meats if you eat meat, do low fat or fat free dairy, don't skip meals, make sure most of your plate is produce. Visit myplate.gov, its really helpful.

Yep, smaller portions, substitute for leaner and better items like ground turkey instead of ground beef--but make sure it is 7% fat or there is little point, whole grains, less "white" foods, more veggies (go frozen if you can't do fresh), don't deprive yourself either. Start with some strength training then add cardio. Strength is super important with weightloss and most forget this. Take 10 min a night to do some yoga. If you can spare 10 min in the morning, do that, too.

Second that on the NO SODA. It is sort of poison. And check if you are on any medications that can affect your metabolism. Some of that crap out there makes people gain weight and it is near impossible to get it off while on the medication.
