A good way to start is to write down everything you are eating normally for the next two or three days. Then you can add up the calories using an online site like fitday or the daily plate, and see how many calories less you need to eat to lose a pound or two pounds a week (also online). Or if you don't like the idea of counting calories every day, making small changes like adding in 2 servings of vegetables to dinner, switching from white breads, pasta and rice, to whole grain is a good idea. As you go along you can make more healthy choices, it really will add up!
