At your height, you should weigh 115-125 pounds.
In order for you to lose weight, you must burn more calories than you take in. Eat 1,500 to 1,700 calories everyday. Make sure you count your calories and try to zig zag ( switch up the number of calories each day, 1,500 one day and maybe 1,300 the day) them so you won't reach a plateau (stop losing weight)
It's NOT a diet, it's a LIFE STYLE CHANGE
Eat whole grain foods (brown rice, wheat bread, whole grain pasta, etc) fruits and vegetables and drink a lot of water. NO soda and try to stay away from junk food. 100% juice is good to drink because it has no added sugar and no high frutose corn syrup (a bad super sugar) if you want chips, eat baked chips, thet are really tasty. Eat more poultry (chicken, turkey, fish) and less red meat (steak, burgers). Whatever meat you eat, remember to NEVER FRY your foods. Always bake, broil, roast, stem or grill your foods.
You can speed walk for about 2 miles a EVERYDAY or more if you like. Jump rope is good or any sports you like to do is good also. Do some light weight lifting to help tone your body, like lifting bags from the supermarket. Squats are good to help tone the thighs and but, crunches and leg lifts for your stomach.
Just have fun eating healthy and exercising and the weight will come off. Buy a tape measure and a scale to track your progress. Measure your thighs, stomach and waist with the tape measure every 2 weeks. Measure yourself on the scale every 2 weeks also. At first you will probably lose a lot of weight, then it might slow down, but that happen to and its only natural. Best of luck to you and if you need any help or advice, email me.
