I'm a 17 year old female. My height's 5'1, weight's 110lb.
My waist is 25.5 and hips are 36.5
Upper thighs are 23, lower thighs are 16.
I have a horrible belly, especially when i'm sitting!
I want to get fitter, leaner legs, tighten up my sides and lose the belly.
So i've done my share of research but i'm still pretty clueless. I have 4-5 healthy meals a day.
Below is an example of today's meal (Just today's meal though, I try to change and eat different kinds of food everyday)
1st meal : Half bowl of muesli with cold milk, 150ml yoghurt, 2TBS red beans
2nd meal : Unsweetened tea, A pear, A bowl of pasta (Wheat pasta, mushroom, broccoli, carrots, 2 different kinds of leafy veggies, tofu, tuna, chilli, garlic, onion, half a TBS of soy oil)
3rd meal : Chicken wrap (Wheat wrap, many different raw veggies, chicken)
4th meal : Unsweetened tea, two slices of multigrain bread with unsweetened mango and pineapple jam, an egg, a bowl of oats(no sugar)
I did 30 minutes worth of workout video from Tiffany Rothe. Ran up 13 floors. Did skipping for 15 minutes, weights for 15 minutes( I only have dumbells) and 15 minutes of other cardio (mountain climbers, high knees etc.)
If I do this would I lose fat? Although I'm definitely aiming to gain lean muscle, I want to concentrate on losing that extra fat first. Because m my thights and butt are really too big and seem out of proportion. I do 15 minute of weights though. Because I heard it helps with burning more fat if you do it before cardio.
I don't know how to estimate my calories. How much calories did I consume today? And how much calories did I burn? Did I lose any fat for today? I have a LOT more questions. If there's any one out there willing to answer my questions through private message please do! Thanks! Cheers!

When counting calories just try to count them in multiples of 100, thats what i used to do-also theres a lot of phone apps that can help, myfitnesspal is the most popular one.
also everyone's stomach sticks out at least a little when they're sitting down :/
