    Yeah my body fat is like 26% but I'm pretty muscular too (varsity soccer does unhumane things to calves/thighs) also thanks to yoga. You're right it's probably not just weight. It's just a psychological thing since I used to weigh about 100 lbs...

    I know what you mean about the eat-what-your-body-tells-you without counting but I really wanna lose weight in time for prom...haha I know it's cliche but it's my senior prom and I have a tiny, gorgeous dress! Also, since I used to have an eating disorder and am highly OCD I automatically clock in the calories/grams...it's annoying

    Thank you for the advice though, I know I need more protein!!
    mmmm Red meat .. Soo good for you !!!

    Haha, well then, eat more fish! Like, LOTS more. Protein will help tremendously with satiety and cutting those carb cravings. Also, I would preferentially eat sweet potatoes over some of the fruit you listed (bananas, apples, peaches, plums). The glucose in root vegetables is a far easier to utilize for your body and doesn't damage your liver like excess fructose can.

    One more thing, ditch the skins for your every-so-often baked potato; that's where the toxins are.

    Soccer and Yoga, FTW!

    Plus, you USED to weigh 100 lbs...when you were ill and needed help. I'm assuming it would be horrible for your health (both mental and physical) to get anywhere close to that weight again.

    Can't find it here in Argentina will coconut milk do as a substitute? What about a spoonful of vinegar?

    Yeah, I don't want to be 100 lbs again but getting to 108-110 healthily is my goal or whatever really my goal is to lose lots and lots of fat, which might/might not mean weight loss too. I really don't know much about JUST losing fat I usually just lose fat/muscle/etc.
    Any advice on this?

    OK-
    that's it
    I'm going to STOP counting calories - as Mark says, not all calories are created equal. I will listen to my body (except when it's like MMM CHEESECAKE/BROWNIES/OREOS/SUGAAAAAAAAR/CARBS!) and eat until I feel satisfied (not full).

    What about counting carb grams until I get a hang of it?

    Haha, a spoonful of balsamic vinegar actually tastes pretty good - strong and tangy. Yeahh I don't think my mom will be too excited about ordering it online + Argentina HATES imports and taxes stuff ridiculously, like 50% of the original price. It's lame.
    I heard the vinegar thing helps regulate insulin/carby cravings/stuff/imbalance, haha. It was on the blog like 2-3 days ago.
