    Blog: How to Start Exercising When You're Very Overweight

    If you’ve got a lot of weight to lose, the thought of exercising can feel like a catch-22 – you know you have to exercise to lose the weight, but the weight makes it hard to exercise. This feeling of being stuck can actually hold you back even more than the weight itself – but it is possible to break free and get moving. In this new blog, WebMD's Dr. Bruni (who has helped many of her patients lose weight -- and who dropped almost 100 pounds herself) talks about motivation, how to start getting....

    Losing fat as a young teenager

    So I'm 15 this year and I basically want to be more fit and look better. I wouldn't consider myself unhealthy or obese but I'm, to a certain extent, overweight . I'm 173cm tall and I'm 70kg.

    I want to lose weight desperately Susabell13

    I have lost 29 pounds last summer using the NurtriSystems meal plans and over the winter, I have gained it back and I have been trying to watch what I eat and walk on our treadmill. I need encouragement to walk every day and walk more than 30 minutes. I am at a loss as to why I can't lose any weight. I take two jazzercise classes a week and it doesn't seem to help. I would love to lose 25 pounds for sure. I am 5 feet 2 and 179 pounds! Very unhappy about how I look.

    Best and worst workouts

    Jogging on a hard surface will eventually cause orthopedic problems. Talk to any knee and hip replacement surgeon and you will find out that jogging will eventually result in either a hip replacement, knee replacement or both. They recommend against it. I jogged for 5 years and eventually found that pain in my knees told me to stop. I lost no inches around the waist, had a pulse of 62 and had to take blood pressure medicine anyway (heredity).
