If you are 5'4" and weigh 205lbs then it
is likely a physician would advise you to lose weight, given this classifies you as very overweight for your age. 

The important thing is to set safe, realistic targets and to remember that
healthy weight loss takes time - but it CAN be done!

A simple way to
lose 100lbs

I used to be overweight myself, but I found two
simple steps helped me shed a lot of weight over the course of several months. 

The first was I took up walking as a hobby. It wasn't easy at first - there was
chafing involved - but after a few weeks of walking say, an extra hour per day,
I was losing weight in a safe, controlled manner. 

Added to this, I cut back on
chips and candy bars, enjoying maybe one each a week instead one or two a day.
Stick to this, and you will find losing weight to be its own encouragement.
(Another tip - don't weigh yourself more than once a month, that way you'll
notice the difference more).

Eventually, having lost weight,
you may feel able to take up more vigorous activities, such as cycling, running
or soccer. 

Just don't try to do too much too soon, or take up with some crazy
fad diet. All it takes is a change of mindset - safe weight loss can be as much
about your mind as your body.

Alternatively,
simply ask if you can make an appointment with your family physician, who will
guide you further. But remember the old saying - don't run before
you've learned how to walk.
