Any suggestions for losing belly fat?

I am only barely 5 feet and I weigh 125. I was always only around 100 and it seemed like when I started my birth control, thats when I put on all the weight. I never really had a problem with my stomach until now...I'm actually starting to see rolls...what would be the best way for me to lose the fat? I want to at least lose the fat first and then try to tone it by doing sit-ups or something...but any suggestions would be appreciated...thank you!
