I know losing those pounds are extremely difficult but if you put your mind to it, I know it will be as easy as a pie. Check out this book which is called the Essential Weight Loss Handbook that I am reading on how to maintain a healthier life and body. Good day!

Loosing weight is really difficult. It requires a strong motivation to achieve it. The 2 main things are ofcourse Diet and Exercise. You should consume less calories and spend more. Avoid foods with high caloric content. Start off with a low impact aerobic exercise like brisk walking for around 20 minutes/day. Then you can gradually increase the duration and severity of the workout. Later you can opt for jogging or join a gym.
