How can I loose weight?pics?

Ok maybe not loose weight I just want to be more healthy and toned. I'm 21 about 5'4 and around 135

Recently I've gained more weight in my butt and hips area, I've always had a big butt and hips and I don't want to get rid of them, I just don't want them to get out of control lol if that makes any sense.

I don't have a flat stomach in fact not one in my family has one, when I was in 7th grade and weighed 97 lbs I still had a little pooch and it's so anoying, I've come to realize that I might be stuck with the pooch forever but if there is any chance I can get rid of it I would love to.

So my question is how to I go about loosing my belly pooch, toning my butt and thighs?, I feel like my thighs are getting big but I honestly feel like I am my worst critic, I look at things I find them horrible but other people don't, I don't want to be one of those people who are obsessed over loosing weight and constanlty being disgusted by their bodies. So yeah I'm just really confused. I just want my body to look better, I want to look at my body and not sit there looking at all these areas I hate.I also have love handles how on earth do I get rid of those??

I have an excersie room in my apartment builing and I have used it before the Elipitcal Machine and sometimes the treadmill.

What do you guys suggest? how long should I work out? how often? I also heard that cardio helps with belly pooch is that true? and does it matter what tem you work out? I don't have much times during the day so evening or night around 6, 7 or 8 would be my best bet

    just try this

    calories an individual will burn at rest during a 24-hour period. To lose weight fast, this number must be as high as possible. Individuals wishing to lose weight should eat early and often (but not a lot). Eating breakfast can increase daily metabolism by as much as 25 percent. The body conserves energy until it receives its first meal, so eating breakfast lets the body know it is OK to jump-start daily processes, which will burn calories. Eating three small meals and one to three small snacks throughout the day helps to keep the metabolism high, as well.

    •Step 2

    Increase your daily activity level. During an eight-hour workday, a server in a restaurant will burn more calories than a computer programmer. While many may not be able to change to a more active occupation, there are still a number of ways to increase the amount of calories burned with lifestyle. Take the stairs instead of the escalator. Park far away when parking at the store. Plan outside activities with family and friends.

    •Step 3

    Increase the amount of weekly exercise. The best way to start a walking habit is to schedule a time to walk each day. It is best if it is the same time every day. So plan on taking your walk or jog before work, at lunch or after work. It is important to create a habit, and it takes about a month for a habit to become second nature.

    •Step 4

    Think "Paleolithic" when making food decisions. If the food is boxed or processed, you probably shouldn't eat it. Consume healthy fats by eating a lot of fish, nuts and seeds. These healthy fats can help decrease cholesterol, treat arthritis and improve overall joint health. Fish and other seafood also contain protein. Other healthy, natural sources of protein are chicken, turkey, organ meats, legumes, and organic meat and dairy products. Most carbohydrate intake should come from fruits and vegetables. Whole and sprouted grains should be eaten, as well.

    Ok, as sad as this sounds, losing your voice can actually be a good thing. xD For many reasons. My main one? When you're at school it's an excuse for the teachers NOT to call on you. Another one? It's kinda fun. In a funny way. Ahaha, told ya this would sound sad. x] But yeah, if you reeeally want to help get it back start taking some cold medicine to help your sickness go away!
