There are thousands of articles you can read on your subject. That would be what I would do for a few days if I were you. Just look up at the very top of the site and it's the second link to click on. Search fat loss. I would recommend finding your BMR, taking a calorie deficit, and finding a workout routine that suites your needs. You will definitely meet your goals with determination, but first you need to educate yourself, so start reading!

If you want exercise routines go to the workout program section or look at the losing fat logs ppl post, they always have their workouts.

A good workout routine is going to be VERY beneficial in your fat loss. But to tell you the truth Diet > training.

Can you lose weight on training alone? It's possible, but not if you're eating like crap. Can you lose weight on diet alone? Yes. What's your best bet? A combination of the two : Nutrition and a proper resistance training program. Like above poster said, check out the workout routine sections.

Good luck!

To get you started:

Get a gym membership, one of the easiest and most important steps.

Next comes using it, and eating right. I wouldn't worry about specifics right now, just make a solid effort to cut out the junk and try to eat good food. You don't need to focus on portion control or precise macronutrients for the time being. When someone your size starts out, they loose an easy 20lbs by simply starting up a better diet.

Once all that's on track check back here for some more advice, in the mean time read all the stickies. Teen forum, excercise, fat loss, and nutrition forums.

get a job doing something active, join a gym, lift weights, start slow on the bike and then move ur way up to the elipticals and treadmill, just do something productive where u dont have time to sit down and eat.

Forgot to mention, join the highschool football and rugby teams in the coming school season. Rugby is the reason I have abs.
