How to lose weight with type 1 diabetes?

I'm a fifteen year old girl. I weigh 149 lbs and am 5'7. I'm type 1 diabetic. I want to lose another ten lbs(fifteen would be ideal, but ten is more realistic). I've been trying to lose weight since last summer, but I've only lost ten lbs so far. I've heard of people losing ten lbs in one... show more I'm a fifteen year old girl. I weigh 149 lbs and am 5'7.
