People who have lost real weight (downsize clothe, noticeable difference), how?

When I was 16, I was 235 lbs.

The next year, I was 150 lbs. I saw an ad in a teen magazine for some "miracle weight loss" thing. Thought it was a pill. So I sent them my money. Lol. It was a small 50 page book. What did it tell me? Same thing you always hear. Eat less and exercise. Start small, work your way up. Instead on eating 4 slices of pizza, I ate one slice with some broccoli and ranch on the side. Instead of eating a burger and fries, I'd eat a burger and some corn.

I also started exercising. The book said to start with 20 push ups, 20 sit ups, 20 modified sit ups, and 20 squats 4-5 times a week. Every week, increase your repetitions by 5. It also had various other exercises you could try and I added one every few weeks.

It worked.

There's not some crazy secret. You don't need to eliminate all bread in your diet, or just eat all meat all the time, or veggies all the time. Balance! And stay active! Fit in 20 push ups during a commercial break, or a video game loading scene. Find some activity you like. Softball, tennis, riding your bike, skating, playing dance video games (those burn calories too!)... whatever. Something you can stick with and enjoy.
