"Is this a normal size or way too big? what should I do to lose weight?
Your second question answered the first one.
As for what to do; it's really easy, and humanity have managed it more or less fine for thousands of years; Have a decently healthy diet where you don't eat more than you need, and get some excercise. That's all it takes to maintain one's weight.
As for loosing it, you need to burn the fat, and that takes sweat and hard work. There's no shortcuts there. Eat healthy, and go to the gym. If you feel you're not manging to push yourself enough, get a personal trainer. He'll make sure you're sweating blood by the time you're done (figuratively speaking)...0

losing weight is extremely simple. Exercise at least three times a week for an hour and eat balanced meals. A proper plate should consist of 1/2 veggies or fruit, 1/4 complex carb (such as brown rice, quinoa or wheat bread, etc), and your protein should be the size of your palm. For exercise I think weight lifting is most effective (don't worry about getting bulky, women lack the necessary hormones to get muscles like men), I think it's more effective because it burns calories long, and build lean muscle which burns calories by just existing. If you want bigger muscles (example, larger butt or arms) then do heavy weighted exercises with low reps (low weight high rep) and if you want smaller leaner muscle do low weights high rep (this basically toned preexisting muscle. And add about 20mins of cardio of your choice. This is what I find most affective but great at home workouts like blogilates or tone it up on YouTube are great and free.
Staying motivated us hard, but I suggest making a vision board. It sound stupid but it works (mine has a picture if my setting or before body and next to it are a bunch of pictures of my dream body) seeing how far I had come or was going really set the tone of my day and reminded me what I was working for. I also keep one picture of my dream body on the fridge so that it reminds me to make smart choices about what I'm eating
