I just downloaded the fitness pal app on my phone, heres to hoping!
I want to be 130 or so. I don't necessarily want to be what I was at 115, but I don't want to be this....

Thank you for the advice, everyone.
I noticed that when I do track what I've eaten throughout the day, I tend to eat less.
For reference:

This was me January 2012(115)...





This is me now(160-ish)...

I really like the cooking light magazine. If you drink coke products, or if anyone you know drinks coke products, you can get a year subscription for a low amount of points. I love the recipes in it, and it actually tastes good! First, make some healthy, lower calorie snacks, and eat constantly. Eating small meals keeps your body working, and as long as it isn't loaded with high calorie items, it'll be less calories in the long run. If you have a wii, the wii-fit really works. If not, set aside some time in the morning- 15 minutes or so, and just do quick exercises. In marching band we would do the alphabet with our feet and not touch the ground- you start feeling it after 'L'. We'd also do jazzercise- grapevines and punches and arm circles.

Most of all, don't stress over it. don't force yourself to do something you don't like- replace it with something you do like.

Yes but diet plans are not. The OP was looking for a diet plan, and those don't work for everyone.

Well, diet and exercise. I'm not looking for a set plan, just things to avoid/cut out...
I'm not sure why, I already sort of know the answers. Just stop boredom eating!

eat less exercise, more but mainly eat less. strength training would probably help as well. There is no magic.
Couple rules that can help you eat less.
Eat nothing white.
eat nothing you cant look at and tell what it came from.

I lost 55 lbs in 6 months from eating 1200 calories a day, with one cheat-day a week, where i ate whatever i wanted to. No exercise at all. Probably could have done it twice as fast without the cheat-days, but they make it easier to get through the rest of the week without cheating a little every day. The first 3 months i lost over 2 pounds almost every day, that was SO motivating! And i was only 10 pounds overweight, so it wasn't because i had like 100 lbs to loose of.

You can pretty much eat anything you want to, as long as you stay on/under 1200 calories a day. You could live of chocolate and still loose weight, but you would quickly find out that 1200 calorie's worth of chocolate(or other unhealthy stuff) isn't very much and won't keep you full throughout the day, so you start eating healthy and filling foods almost automatically.

I apologize for my english, i hope you understand. Good luck with your weight-loss!

not sure what that meant, I was being serious. eat less exercise more.

Avoid white... mostly high carb and overly processed,,, think about white foods, wonder breads, french fries, processed quicky rice, mostly all over processed and bad.
Avoid foods you look at and cant tell what it is,,, also generally all your bad foods. you can look at a string bean, apple, fish, or chicken leg and say yep know where that came from. where the heck does a twinky come from ?

You dont look overweighy to me lol you weigh less than me! But then again im taller so...

Abyways at yhe start of the summer I weighed almost 180 lbs and I weighed myself a week ago and im now 165. And I feel great! My secret was going to the barn almost every day over thr summer and doing chores plus riding for 8+ hours a day. So maybe you can ride a bit more and longer? And helping out around the barn more too. I used to go to the feed store with the BO and help lift the bags ect... And I have really built up endurance from it all.

I also have the problem of eating when im bored so the fitness pal helps too! Good luck!
