Janejj:
There's nothing wrong with wanting to improve your appearance or lose a few pounds. However, given your height and weight, instead of focusing on "weight loss," I would advise you to concentrate on building muscle and burning fat. This will take care of your concerns about your legs and stomach. For me, weight training and cardio exercise have improved my appearance trememdously. I'm 5'7" and 127 lbs but appear very slim (to others, anyway) because it's mostly muscle (muscle weighs more than fat). In addition, muscle burns more calories than fat. Joining the gym was the best thing I ever did for my health, and contrary to what you may think, it is a lot of fun working out! So, join a gym and consult one of the fitness trainers to start you on a regular exercise program. You won't be sorry, I promise. Oh, and as a sufferer of severe clinical depression and a near-suicide attempt, I can't overstate the mental health benefits of exercise as well. Good Luck!
