If you log every bite of food you eat that will be all the kick start you need. If you don't know what your recommended daily intake (RDI) should be, use a couple of different online calculators to help you decide & shoot for staying at or under it consistently. Personally I like WebMD's Personal Diet Evaluator.
Weight loss is 80% diet...get that under control & the weight will be flying off. Don't put off exercise, there is SOMETHING you can do. I started out walking 15 min a day 3 days a week because severe back pain wouldn't allow me to do any more at first. The longer I stuck to it, the easier it got & I'm getting ready to run my 2nd 10k in a few days. Get moving!
