Do you have any tips for losing weight?

I'm a teenager looking to lose about 15 pounds before school starts, which is 8 weeks away. I'm 5'6, and 135 pounds if that matters and I'm running with the XC team this summer, so I'll be getting my exercise, and I know the basic guide for losing weight, I'm just terrible at following it. Any advice about how to stick with it, and any general weight loss, or fitness tips will be appreciated.

Thank you! :]

    Whats best to do is start running early. This way you may loose some weight and already be in shape for the season. I run cross country for my high school and if you eat right and stay in shape then you can loose weight and even if you don't loose weight you feel great because you're exercising.
