Start doing some sort of daily/regular exercise. For the past 4 years I've ran on my elliptical machine for about 15 minutes at a time once or twice a day (with some effort, not just walking) and I've been able to maintain a weight I'm comfortable with.

It's not just exercise though. It's not so much that you have to start dieting but you should cut out the junk food or minimize it as much as you can for the time being.

How little you must be. I weigh 85kgs (187pounds) And I'm quite slim these days (went from 95kgs, 209 pounds). I'm only 6'3 so although I stand an inch or two higher than most the people I meet it's not like I'm super tall. You must be tiny.

Honestly, eating well should come first. It did more for me than exercise ever did.

Exercise and diet are both equally important.

To lose one pound per week, you would have to burn an equivalent of 500 calories per day. 1 pound = 3,500 calories.

If you were to burn 500 calories a day due to exercise, and then lower your daily calorie intake by 500, you can safely lose 2lbs per week until you reach your goal weight. Remember to get healthy foods in your diet as starving your body of certain nutrients could be the cause of excess weight gain, forcing your body to store unnecessary fat as an energy supply.

If you really are interested in losing weight you can message me or just ask any questions here

How tall are you again?

Cause when I was 65kg I was practically anorexic.

75kg is where it's at.

I don't want to be the first one to say it.

You know what you have to quit.
