Weight issues: Unfortunately, there is not an easy answer to that. You will need to work with a person who can coach you on how to do so. Your weight is about calories.

How shall I lose weight from my thighs. My body weight of 49kg & height is 5'7". I feel my thighs are little heavier according to my body.

Hard to do: It's almost impossible to lose weight from just one body area. You can lose fat and build-up muscle by exercising that area, but muscle adds weight and the muscle in ther area may make it larger than when it was less muscular. Depending on your body type, fat will deposit and break down from general exercise and proper eating. Read more
