I'm about your height and weight. i haven't lost any weigh yet but, i'm not really motivated to do it. but my advise (i'm giving it because I know it would work if i tried it) is start with small goals. don't just be like i have to lose 60 lbs in two months or something crazy like that. and besides, no matter what the stupid little weight percentile thing says, it isn't accurate for everyone. there are alot of differences in the way people are built and such. so i'm only shooting for 140. if i ever start dieting. but right now i'm happy with myself, so it's not that big of a deal

my problems alot like yours. What I do is drink diet soda. It hardly has any calories so you can drink as much of it as you like. At school I usually go for fairly healthy options like jacket potatoes or something. People dont realise Im on a diet. I dont like salads so I dont eat those, and if I do get something fattening with my friends, I usually dont eat breakfast and only have an apple and go for a walk to make up for it. Anyway I hope that was of help. If u would like an email buddy. You can email me at:
