You really need to do some level of exercise. I'm not saying you need to go out jogging, buy a treadmill, or join a gym to loose weight. But exercise stimulates your metabolism so you really need it. As far as amount of calories go, it really varies depending on your age, weight, and sex. I'm a 24 year old female and was told to eat about 1433 until I loose enough weight to switch to a 1300 cal diet.

As far as vegetarian diets go, do you eat eggs or cheese or completely sustain from all animal products? Both, although great sources of protein, can be very high in fat. So maybe use only egg whites in baking and limit your cheese to low fat varieties. You may want to also think about what kind of oils you use and op for canola oil or olive oil. Also coconut milk/meat, nuts, and avocado are all pretty high in fats. That doesn't mean you should avoid them, but I suggest counting how many grams of fat you're having. You want to aim for fat accounting for only 20% of your caloric intake. Meaning, 20% of your calories are from fats.

I would look into beans, lentils and tofu options. They're great sources of protein and usually lower in fat (and usually cheaper). Also try to eat 5-6 times a day, adding in the low fat/calorie snacks in between meals, keep your leafy green vegetables high, and your water at about 2 liters a day.

You really should see a doctor if you're having difficulty sitting and standing.
It's possible that you may not be getting all of your vitamins. A lot of vegans have difficulty getting certain vitamins and that can cause serious health complications.
