Ht. 5'6", Today: 147 lb (BMI %tile: 85), Goal: 130 lb - Hi everyone. I'm about 5'6 maybe a lil taller cause I think I just had a growth spurt. Anyway, I weigh about 147 lbs. I want to loose about 17 lbs so I can weigh 130. That's what I put on my permit when I got it cause I didn't want peeps knowing how much I really weigh. But I really do want to weigh that! Someone please help me! I have a really busy life and it's hard to find time for excercise; I do it when I can. I'm also planning on going out for track soon. I bought a bikini/tankini thing, and I want to feel comfortable with people seeing me in it. I have a big belly. Everyone tells me I'm not fat, but I know I am. All my friends are really skinny and they eat all the time and never excercise. I excercise whenever possible and I don't eat much, but I'm still fat. Anyone who could help me, it would be greatly appriciated! My b/f just moved and since he won't be seeing me much, I want to look good for when he sees me. He tells me that I'm perfect, but I don't think I am. Please help! Thanks!

eat lots of foods with a low calorie density like fruits and veggies, and all the other stuff have smaller portions. Be patient it takes a week to lose 1-2 pounds. Also, I have friends who are so skinny, eat whatever the hell they want and dont even know what exercise is too!!! It annoys me so much!! and then whenever you go out with them somewhere to eat and you order something healthy they just look at you like you are a freak and dont understand why you dont eat like them!! LIFE IS UNFAIR......
