So, I've joined a gym. Now what do I do?

I joined a gym this morning. NYHRC, to be exact. Have had memberships to other gyms before, but eventually canceled because I didn't go consistently enough to justify the dues. This one has a large branch right near my office, so I figure I can set up a routine in my schedule.
I need to exercise regularly and lose weight. So my question is, how can I make the most of this membership and effectively lose weight (by reducing fat / slimming down) through exercise? Can you recommend a realistic regimen for someone who until now has not exercised regularly or consistently and is a bit of a sedentary couch potato?
If you were like me once, can you please share what worked for you?
