Californian researchers have noted that women who lose about seven pounds or more in twelve months often show a decrease in their bone density.  This is more frequent in older women, therefore if you are planning to achieve some weight loss, it would be worth discussing an exercise plan with your doctor to help strengthen the bones for future years
