In brief: Nutrition & exercise

Proper nutrition & regular exercise are key to losing & maintaining weight.
Optimal thyroid function helps, too, so make sure your TSH is right for you (lots of debate over normal vs optimal). Check out http://nhlbisupport.Com/bmi/ to calculate your body mass index. Normal is <25 or less than 137# for 62". However, remember that body fat composition is more important than weight, especially if fat.
