You're on the right track
Thank you for the inquiry!I am glad to hear that you are taking charge of your weight at such a young age! Through way of the Hamwi formula your ideal weight range (given your height and gender) should be between 127-159 pounds. This does not take into account frame size so the range is not an exact number to reach but more of an goal range. I recommend following a balanced diet rich in vegetables, nuts, protein, and nutrient dense snacks. Medical weight loss programs, such as the ones offered at my practice, could be beneficial for you so long as you follow your personalized plan to ensure the best results!
Best of luck to you.
Do not despair
if you start tracking above parameters, you will see if there are any issues you can correct. if still having problem you need to see a weight loss specialists in your area. go to the ABOM website where board certified weight loss doctors are listed according to area and you can find some one who works with you.
Hope that helps
