In brief: Eat less, & exercise
Obesity can be overcome by a permanent change in lifestyle and in personal outlook.
If a person eats fewer calories than he needs to live on each day, his body will use the stored fuel (fat). If a person exercises more than he did before, but does not start eating more calories, then his body will use up the fat (stored fuel). Easier said than done, but definitely possible to do.

In brief: Lifestyle changes
small changes in diet and activity can result in big changes in obesity.
First and foremost, try to eliminate sugar or caloric beverages- they usually add unneeded sugar to your diet. Consult with a health professional about diet and activity to get a program that will work for you and your lifestyle. Try to be more active daily. Every bit counts.
