Maybe that's where you are going wrong. I mean not eating a lot...
Or well, i don't really know what you mean by that, but anyways here are a few tips;
WHEN to eat for losing weight...
• Eat (at least) three times a day.
Because when you eat only once a day, your metabolism gets slower than it already is! That's the main reason. Sounds funny, but to lose weight... you must eat (the right things, of course)
• Eat low-fat, high-fiber foods such as salads and vegetable pastas.
• Your last meal should be before 18:00. Try.
OK, one apple after 18:00
• Don't starve
Starvation is not good for losing weight, nor your health.
Starvation is the worse thing you can do in a weight loss diet.
• Try oatmeal instead of cornflakes for breakfast--eating oatmeal can help reduce cholesterol levels, and its high fiber content will keep you full longer.
WHAT to drink for losing weight...
• Drink 6-8 glasses of water every day !
Can be tap, plain, mineral, sparkling. I just love mineral sparkling water!
This improves your bowel, reduces the "hunger" sensation, and hydrates your skin. Your skin will look much better after the first weeks!
Don't believe the slogan "water makes me fat". Beside being stupid... you might get into serious troubles with your kidneys.
• Drink ONLY natural juices, freshly squeezed!
Don't drink Coca Cola, Pepsi, Spite etc. during the diet. Even lite or light versions.
• Avoid those vending machines by carrying around your own healthful foods and leaving pocket change at home.
Exercise for losing weight...
• If you want quicker results - exercise would be good.
• Don't just sit in front of the TV and eat peanuts...
I guarantee THIS won't work for your weight loss...
• Start a regular exercise program and stick with it. Don't be afraid of those sweat suits and Lycra pants!
• Start swimming. Swimming is an excellent exercise to get involved with, since it increases blood flow and uses muscles we don't regularly use. Start a swimming program and try to do it 3 times a week. You will feel excellent and rejuvenated.
• Choose an exercise program that you enjoy, and don't shun the unconventional. For instance, did you know that regular vigorous dancing is exercise too?
• Also Cardiovascular exercises such as running, jogging, or aerobics will help you lose that unwanted belly fat. Weight training can also help you lose body fat because the more muscle mass you have, the more ability your system has to burn body fat.

You seem to be eating pretty healthy, so congratulate yourself on that. Eating healthy is hard to do (for me, at least!) Try keeping yourself busy to avoid snacking. If you usually snack while watching t.v, or using the computer, find something else that will keep you busy. Ask your parents to buy you a fun workout dvd (maybe for your birthday ect.). Something that you'll enjoy doing, like a dance workout. Talk to your parents about maybe enrolling you in a dance class, or boxing. It will help you lose weight and probably even help you build more confidence! Good luck!
Go watch this Youtube of a new product that just came out and it is as safe as drinking water. After you watch it shoot me an email and I can tell you more. YOU WON"T BELIEVE YOUR EYES!

well I am 17 years old and I once weighed 210 lbs. I weighed that when i was 15. I decided one day that Ididn'tt want to be thatoverweightt so I started to diet and exercise. My diet was mainly of fruit, yogurt, low fat snacks and because I wasnt getting anyproteinn but I was exercising I started to eat a lot of mixed nuts or i would have a peanut butter sandwhich with low fat bread. I ate probably half the calories or more then I had been eating. Then for excercise I would do 50 sit ups, 10 push ups, 20 lunges per each leg, and 15 squates. I also started to take my uncles dog for a walk every night. In the first 3 months I lost 30 lbs and 6 inches of my hips and 3 inches of each thigh.
I got one of those flexible rulers people use when they measure fabric so I could measure my waist, hips, and thighs.

Hi Dear! I am 20 too! but i got a way's to go before i am 21. I hope u enjoy ur birthday!
I too want to loose weight so these are the things i do and have seen some small results. (i say small because i was slacking , but plz dont be like me lol!)
Try drinking atleast 8 glasses of water. Why? because water is a source of fiber because it washes ur body out of impurities.
Also, incorperate arobic excercises. Try brisk walking, jogging, tredmill, bycile. even swimming, jumping rope, high intensity dancing! ( my favorite!)
Also, my boyfriend( who is a med student) told me that weight lifting helps because it helps u gain muscles and muscles burn fat.
In order to tighten skin and develop muscles, crunches for your stomach, leg lifts, curls, squats..etc..will help as well.
Also, ur diet should be high in fiber, like veggies and protien like fish and chicken and a little red meat. fruits are good source of vitamins and fiber as well.
I also encourage you to stay away from fats completely until you are at your desired goal. I say this because you do not need fats to survive and u need to focus on loosing weight and loosing fat. So eating fats defeats the purpose.
I wish you the best of luck, joy and happiness and a wonderful life, fit and healthy.

When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together.
If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For
diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food
after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on
your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If
you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey
cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your
diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to
calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising,
start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the
most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a
lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack,
disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target
your problem areas for men and women. It's not necessarily to become a
bodybuilder or even join a gym - a couple of dumbbells will help you
to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).
