Losing weight is not easy (Unfortunately, it is so easy to put on, but hard to take off - Wish it was the other way around, eh?) I am overweight myself and I sometimes wish that I could be thinner (I am not too concerned about the actual weight number) I just want to look good. I, myself am tall (5'11) so it does not really show that much, but anyone who would look at me would notice that I am a bit chubby looking. Lately, I have been exercising. Every morning, I walk to school and home from school. Walking is one of the best exercises your body can get, so after dinner or whenever you are bored, go for a walk and enjoy the great outdoors! Before you go to bed, do some situps and pushups. I do that and it feels great. I sometimes use the "Health Walker" (You stand on it and walk in the air - also known as an "Air Walker") and that is a great way. If you do have that machine, I suggest you use it. There is no need for expensive machines or equipment to do exercise, but if you want, you could sign up to a local Gym. That is another good way to stay in shape. What's even better is when you join with a friend. Whatever you decide to do, good luck and if you work hard enough, then you can achieve anything! Good Luck!
