im trying to lose weight and pretty much want a makeover, I want to look model-esq but healthy at the same time and sometimes I feel discouraged that my body can't be slender I don't know if its my bones and muscle or what but I'm just thick am I stuck this way forever? or can anyone achieve a healthy, slender body? I am tall too so height is not the problem its just that I have a lot of muscle mass and some fat padding and may be big bones

Firstly; "big bones" - what a load of bull. That's just one of the long line of excuses fat people use to explain their overweighted-ness.
Secondly; loosing weight is not the trial people make it out to be. The two best things you can do are:
- cut down on your meals, smaller portions, no take-sways or fast food, less fat, and NO snacking. Although, don't go cold turkey, because few people can actually do this. Allow yourself the occasional small chocolate bar. And by occasional I don't mean every hour.
- and drink lots of water, this will counteract the urge to snack.
After that all the exercise kicks in. The most important of which is cardiovascular exercise, running, swimming, cycling etc, the more you sweat, the more weight you'll loose. I always found sprinting VERY effective and burning fat.0
