No quick weight loss: Develop your self esteem and lifestyle habits to lose weight as there is no quick fix. Weight watchers, exercise, portion control may be good starting point.

Don't allow your: self-esteem to be dictated by your weight and other's comments. To lose weight insure that calories burned > calories consumed. Drink at least 8 - 8 oz glasses of water /day. Try for 8 hrs of sleep/night. Aim for at least 5 servings of vegetables & 4 of fruit per day. Use whole grains. Avoid sodas, alcohol & junk carbohydrates. Get in a good mix of aerobic & weight lifting exercises.

Diet and exercise: It is not healthy to try to lose weight quickly. You should aim for losing about one pound per week. Reduce your intake and increase your physical activity. It may help to join a support group like weight watchers. Visit this site for info on nutrition: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/.

See Dr: There are Drs who have special interest and experience with obesity. Beware of charlatans with wild promises of success with unusual artificial diets and supplements. There are several diagnoses to consider. Not all obesity is the same. A med school clinic may be the best place to start. Many people benefit from surgery.
