Nothing is impossible. You simply need to reconsider the barriers and the options. You also need to figure out if losing weight should be your top priority at present.
If it is so important, what is getting in the way of this goal? Do you have advice on diet? Do you have an exercise coach? Do you have a place to work out? Do you have transportation?

There are solutions to all of these questions. Break the problem down into smaller pieces and then work on solutions to those smaller bits.
