What should I do to lose a lot of weight?

I am way to overweight. (5'7" and 240 pounds) I know, I scare myself looking into the mirror. It just makes me sad of what I've become. Anyways, is there anyway I can shed off 100 pounds in 1 year? Most of it is stored in my trunk. I definatly want to lose at least 20 pounds before school starts (September 4th) Can someone give me a workout schedule? I have access to a pool every day. One of my favorite workouts is DDR (Dance Dance Revolution) on playstation. I have one that counts the calories I burn. I consume about 800-1000 calories a day. How much should I burn a day? Thanks =)

    Eat only when hungry and not more than thrice a day. Nothing other than water in between. Include plenty of uncooked vegetables and fruits in each meal, preferably 50%.

    Chew each morsel at least 32 times. Do not touch articles of food or the cutlery in between. This will activate ur body to generate strong signals of hunger/fullness. Obey these signals.

    Take light exercises and brisk walks (minimum 20 min duration) regularly preferably twice a day.

    U will achieve what u have not even dreamt and that too in a reasonable time. Do not be in a hurry. It is however to be noted that one cannot change the shape or size of different parts of the body.
