It's a hard choice for me to make, especially because I'm a woman which means that when I lose weight I also lose cup size in my breasts.
So here's the sitch: For most of my life, I always had small boobs. I always felt insecure about them and finally ended up just ignoring them as much as possible, not even looking at myself when I would undress in front of a mirror. But at least I was skinnier then.
Now, over the past two years I gained weight and although I may be chubbier, my but is fuller and rounder and I'm actually really happy with my boobs. My breast are a size that I actually enjoy holding in my hands, playing with, and even staring at in the mirror when I'm naked. I finally feel like an actual woman and not just a girl. But then there's the fact that my family expects me to lose the weight I've gained but also I feel like I should too. My arms got chubbier and my face as well which doesn't look the best on me but is still okay.
So should I lose weight and just not care about my breasts or should I just be happy with the way I am now? It's not that I'm unhealthy or obese, it's just that I could be skinnier if I wanted to.

Your body, your decision. As long as you are happy and healthy then it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. The key though is health. It is one thing to have an extra 5 or 10 lbs on you, it is another to have an extra 30 or 50, regardless of how it looks, it puts stress and strain on your body so that it doesn't work properly. No physical appearance preference is worth that kind of health issue.
Given your age range: I'm betting your breasts won't lose as much as you think. You are just now at the age for the end of development. What wasn't there in breast tissue before, may very well be there now regardless of the weight. I know I personally rarely loose weight and size in my breasts. I have lost 20% of my body weight before, while in the age bracket you are now. The measurements of my waist, hips, thighs, and arms all dropped by 15-20%, my breasts didn't even drop a full 5%1
