Wow! You are very close to where I was when I started. I was 163 and I'm 5'6" when I decided to throw away my excuses.
1. BELIEVE you can. Don't say "I think" or "I'm going to try..". It's all about what you tell yourself. Just as easily as you tell yourself "I keep failing", you can tell yourself " I will not fail".
2.Use the spark tools to track your workouts and meals consistently every single day. It's great to enter your goal weight and date and have the SP program tell you how many calories you need to eat daily to meet your goal. Also, use Sparkpeople to find motivation and inspiration for others who have had the same challenges.
3. Workout 30-60 minutes a day consistently, every single day even if it's just walking.
Do this for 6 months and you WILL see results. It doesn't happen overnight. You have to be very consistent for month. You CAN do this!
