Calculate your BMI, hips to waist ratio and body fat percentage. That will give you a much better idea than just weight.

if you like the way you currently look, no. if you think losing weight would make you love yourself more go for it.

**** what people think if your living a happy lifestyle and forget about what others think live your life. only care about what you think about yourself if your happy with yourself thats what matters and dont try and change your weight for friends or any guys **** em. live life. if u still wanna loose weight just watch what you eat and replace certain foods if thats a challenge. for a week or month carry on eating as you do but add fruit and vehetables to your foods and keeping your propotions same but over time once you get into habit of using vegetables and stuff slowly decrease your food portions and eat more healthy. if you dont want to eat healthy then just carry on eating as you do and do some exercise may it be home exercises or outside for a jog or run

122ibs is so small you don’t need to lose weight ❤️ If you want to improve your body just eat healthy but don’t cut calories and do weight workouts xx

That is poor advice. Some people suffer with body image, and think they need to lose weight even when they don't need to and it would put them at too low a weight.

Things like hips are bone; you can't do much to ultimately change how wide they are.
