I think you should try eating healty, like 3 meals a day and 1-2 snacks if you're really hungry. And you should exercise too, for about 30 minutes atleast everyday.
That should make you lose weight, it works for most people. It takes some time but it's worth the wait!!
I used to be your size and now I'm 100 pounds(45kg) and I'm 5'7(170 cm). Oh and 5'5 is 165cm!

im sorry but i dont think you need to lose any weight. I am the same height as you and 65 kg is my goal weight. I think the reason you cant lose any more weight is because you are at the perfect weight for you. I dont think you need to lose anything.
