Wow, you are so not obese. And I really am not saying this just to make you feel better - 110 pounds is really great for a 5 foot eleven-year-old. Want me to explain why? It's because you're probably gonna grow 4 inches or more in the next couple of years. Which means you're gonna grow into your body beautifully - you get me? I hit my growth spurt when I was 11 and I grew 5 inches in two years! When you become taller, you also start looking thinner. If you diet too much, your body won't get the nutrition it needs and won't grow.
If you really think you are obese (which you are so NOT!) the only thing you should do is run around, exercise. Ride a bike around outside, the fresh air is good for you and it's a good workout. Don't ever cut back on your food - your body needs it because you are growing, although if you eat junk food, cutting back on chips and McDonald's would be great.
I hope that helped; it really makes me sad when girls think they're obese when they are actually a perfect weight!
