Okay, so I'm not exactly unhappy with myself, but I'm not happy. How would you suggest looking improving the way you look over summer? I am over weight (At least in my opinion I am), I'm a size 14 and I'm 15 years old. I am about 5'4 and do have heavier thighs. I wouldn't go as far to say that I am ugly though, and my skin is quite good but I do have a little bit of a double chin... Also, what do you think about stretch marks? I have them on my upper arms and I am really ashamed and embarrassed, I don't even show my family my arms, I am also quite tanned. Anyway, if you have any tips on weight loss and just looking better in general, that would be great :)
Please don't give any silly suggestions like "Stop eating", or anything insulting for no reason. It doesn't make you a bigger person to be mean to somebody online for no reason. Thanks again :)

It's the summer, there are so many things you can do outside for free! Run, jog, hike, walk, bike, swim.1

The most important thing is to do something you'll stick with. :) This is why most diets fail; you won't keep with it if you deprive yourself of your favorite foods. Just have them less frequently, as a treat.
As for exercise: again, find something you'll stick with. Whether it's a relaxing walk every morning, or 30 minutes of Just Dance, or a few hours of swimming every week. Find something you enjoy!
I could never stick with an exercise program growing up because I didn't have the patience to wait for results. Just recently, though, I made the decision to train for a 5k because I wanted to be a better runner (read: able to run at all lol). And it was much easier to stick with because I could look forward to doing races with my mom and sister (both experienced runners), and weight loss wasn't my primary goal; just a welcome side effect. Unfortunately, 10 days after I started running, i overworked myself pretty bad and injured both of my knees lol... lesson learned, take it slow! But I'll be back to training soon!
