See doctor: This is 95 kg. Your doctor needs to be involved in order to determine the cause/treatment. Obesity is a risk factor for diabetes, dyslipidemia and cardiovascular disease. Your lifestyle may need to be addressed including the food you eat.

Remember: Exercise is only part of the weight loss equation. The other component is your diet. If your really are exercising as vigorously as you mention then you need to take a close look at what your daily caloric intake is. Remember weight loss hinges on the balances of calories you take in versus burn.
