Well eating wise. So my mini goal is to lose 50 pounds by my 21st birthday. Which is the 15th of Dec. So that gives me 8 mths and 3 days. So thats about 6 pounds a mth. Which doesnt seem like much but my eating right now is disgusting so I have to change everything. So i had my last fattening meal for a while. After dinner I jogged/ power walked for an hr. Thats the most excersize ive gotten in a while. And for how overweight i am I surprised my self. Im a great runner. Ok so the following is my diet plan for tomorrow.

Breakfast (224)
*Quaker weight control Banana oatmeal-160 Calories
* Cup of fruit-64 calories

Snack (200)
*Carrots w low fat ranch-100 Calories
*yogurt- 100 Calories

Lunch (510)
Tuna Wrap
210 cal Wrap
100 cal Tuna
15 cal tbsp mayo
15 Cal Lettuce
35 Cal Onion
10 Cal Tomato
65 Cal fruit
60 Cal pudding

Snack (260)
Celery (4) w peanut butter(180 Calorie
Almonds 80 Calorie

Dinner (245 )
4 0z Chicken (110 Calories)
4 Cups Veggies(120 Calories)
Lemon Juice (15 Calories)

Dessert (140 calories)
Skinny cow ice cream sandwich (140 Calories

That leaves me with 511 Calories left to get to the 1600 for the day.. Any suggestions.....

Unless I'm mistaken, the foods you listed add up to nearly 1600 calories.

50 pounds by your birthday is reasonable! I'm currently on Weight Watchers and I exercise 4 to 5 times a week. 3 days ill go to the gym and do 35 mins on the elliptical and strength training and the other two days ill go on long walks with my mother either 3 or 4 miles, but i enjoy it so much. I usually lose 2 pounds a week which is considered healthy weight loss. I think you should do 3 days of 35 minutes exercise like myself and maybe one day of an hour exercise...because doing 1 hour of exercise everyday or whatever you'll get so bored and want to quit. take it slow at first.

as for your eating, i would encourage you to look at fitness and health magazines they usually have menu plans for calorie counters like yourself and yummy recipes!
