If your friend is really short, then that may be a healthy weight for HER, if she's about your height or taller, it's not. And it shouldn't be about being SKINNY it should be about being healthy. You seem to want this for all the wrong reasons. It shouldn't be because you wanna be stick-thin like your friend, or you want boys to like you (at eleven it shouldn't matter that much anyway, you have PLENTY of time to date, don't grow up too fast, because you can't go back). Make this about you, and being healthy. Also, being heavy doesn't make a person a loser. If people are going to pick on you, they most likely will whether you're heavy or not, they will find a flaw and they will pick at that. You just have to learn to toughen up, it's hard, but it's survivable.

i know how you feel
before i went to middle school i totallly freaked out about the whole weigh in thing. but it's not that bad and nobody will see.
and since you're more muscular maybe thats why you weigh more becuz muscle weighs more than fat.
anyways in 2 months if you really try at the most to be healthy you can lose 16 pounds.
just run or some kind of exercise, but the hardest thing for me is cutting down on the food.
my doctor told me i exercise a lot but i'm not losing ne weight becuz i eat so much...
good luck! hope i helped!
