Hi dear, don't get so demotivated just because of your obesity. Be happy and confident from inside. Then you can help yourself much more. I agree with Dr. Harsha in all the points, in addition to those I would like to add few more points.
Weight loss with such a huge target should be started off with small steps at a time. It should be a combination of extremely specific diet n exercises. For which customized consultation is required. Till then you could follow these along with Dr. Harsha's tips .... Have a very heavy breakfast with a combination of complex carbs like oats, protein like egg or milk, 1 seasonal fruit. End your day with a very light dinner, which should be finished off by 8pm. Keep yourself hydrated n have lots of fluids throughout the day, along with salads n veggies as fillers.

Hello there...I can understand your concern. ideal weight for your height is around 68 kgs. Firstly visit a general physician and get investigated for diabetes and thyroid disorders. you must understand losing your weight is a very gradual process. You should have strong determination and patience if you want to lose weight. And it cannot happen suddenly. Losing too much suddenly is also not good for health. You have to follow a strict diet and exercise schedule. Regarding diet - have small multiple meals instead of 3 big meals, eat food rich in proteins and fibres like egg white boiled chicken vegetables fruits pulses, avoid carbohydrate rich foods like rice curds oily foods sweets ghee and other junk food. Regarding exercises - start slowly with brisk walking, then change over to jogging, running and other abdominal exercises. Never over strain yourself. And always keep yourself well hydrated and enjoy whatever you do. Also consult a dietician at any hospital who will be able to give you a proper chart regarding the same
