The key to losing weight is following a reasonable and sensible daily activity regime that is very user friendly and you can do regularly with out any undo stress.
Your primary focus in the beginning of your program is to set a goal of just being active. For i.e walk your neighborhood first, ride your bike, do stairs. Focus on being consistent with something like that rather than start running and then injuring yourself.
This gradually introduction to an active lifestyle can be a rewarding experience and can help to motivate you to challenge yourself. A good goal is to shoot for 10% of your bodyweight to be lost. Losing 10% of your bodyweight can help you to reduce your risk for:
