A good wt is 145 lb: A good weight for 69 inches is about 145 lb. Losing 2 lb each month is good. Helpful weight loss food examples include carrots, celery, and leafy green lettuce (without salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits contain natural sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie regardless of where it comes from.
