That doesn't seem like too much overweight? I guess she could start of talking a long walk every day, at a brisk pace. Maybe ride a bike. Nothing too strenuous to start off with, as she'll probably get discouraged. And she should definitely change her diet, limit her calories, and think about what food sources she gets her calories from.

But her weight doesn't seem that bad for her age. :)

it doesnt seem to bad a that bad weight.

anyways cut down on fat sugar and salt.

if possible make her take a long walk as the first thing in the morning.

Brisk walking eventually leading to a bit of jogging. Also flexibility is youth perhaps you could get her interested in yoga.

Also keep a strict clean diet.

i agree totally with spinx, yoga seems to really do it for more mature people, a couple of old boys at my place of work do it and love it, probably helps cos some really tasty young women go too tho!! :D
